Beach Boys praise of GM

"This band is incredible.  Aren't they incredible?"

Al Jardine, The Beach Boys


Corporate Client (regularly hires band):

"I can’t tell you what a great job you guys did. All the feedback I have gotten has been nothing short   of your band being one or several of: amazing, incredible, outstanding, fantastic and/or kick’ass. 

Perhaps the best comment was from one of our elder members who said “Let me warn you, there will be a mutiny if you don’t bring that band back next year.”

Thanks again for being the highlight of the evening. I couldn’t believe there were still 80-100 folks  left at the party when midnight hit. That was probably a first in our 35 year history."

-Douglas Gerard, Rotery Club


Wedding Client (Their Wedding was Featured in a Wedding Magazine):

"Hey Michael,  

Greetings from Bali!  We couldn't stop talking on the plane about how the band really made the day for us.  You guys kept the dance floor rockin and presented a polished look that was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for the part you and the band played in making our big day perfect." - Josh Priest - Wedding at MillCreek Inn

They were absolutely awesome!! They kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Very willing to work with you regarding time and song preferences.  They played all kinds of music and had great moves to go along with it!

  Hello Michael

 "Thank you so very much for such an INCREDIBLE music experience at our wedding!  Everyone at the wedding from young to old had nothing but wonderful things to say about the Groove Merchants.  You brought such energy and fun to the wedding, and we were so pleased with the songs you played.  Thank you!!

- Tori Searl"




We just got back from our honeymoon and people are STILL raving about the Groove Merchants. They killed it! I’ve never seen a wedding band get an encore, and I don’t think I ever will again (unless of course it’s another GM wedding!) 

We’d like to send a tip to the band to show our gratitude and appreciation for what an awesome job they did. What’s the best way to do this? Is PayPal or Venmo an option?


Gina & Mike
