Big City Grooves is an old-school function band specialising in classic funk and soul tunes. They offer a 6 or 8-piece line-up and perform a range of hits from the likes of Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to create a great party atmosphere.


Funk and soul music provides a great soundtrack to all kinds of events, from weddings and birthdays to corporate events. The band has two line-up options to cater for different venue sizes and budgets, both offering an impressive and authentic sound.


The band is made up of a friendly and professional group of musicians, who have performed extensively together and individually. Funk and soul music is their passion, and the artists they cover are their idols, so they’ll stop at nothing to make sure their performance does this justice.


Each event is different and the band will work hard to meet your individual needs. As well as the different line-up options, the band will even dress to suit your needs – anything from casual to dress to impress.
