When you want to create a special night for your customers and you want live music, you need a band that is a little bit special too. That band is the The Groove Surgeons. We conjure a special, electric atmosphere. We do this performing a captivating blend of classic and contemporary Jazz Funk and Soul tunes from the 70’s to the present day. This is music you can dance to, music that encourages the enjoyment of the company of friends and music that sets your venue apart from others.

The Groove Surgeons play as a 4 to 7 piece instrumental. We play our own interpretations of music created by some of the world’s most renowned musicians and composers. Music that is the genesis of some of the most legendary figures on the world stage. The Groove Surgeons take the world’s grooviest classics, making those tunes a tight, evolving and invigorating musical journey.

Irresistible rhythm, deep grooving bass lines, fine melodies and interaction that can take a tune anywhere the imagination can, we create roof lifting atmosphere that builds relentlessly as each tune strips away the trials and tribulations of modern living, turning grey skies blue. No show is ever the same. We lift moods, electrify synapses and bring people together to enjoy a musical journey that is rarely seen outside a handful of international cities.

Led by Jody Smith, a leading professional musician from Dublin and joined by a core rhythm section who are among some of the best instrumentalists on the contemporary UK music scene. A wealth of experience and a high degree of professionalism means that we provide high quality, high standard performances.

We are a perfect platform as a four piece. Make that four piece that little bit more special by adding one of the country’s top saxophone players, Steve Grainger (Culture Club, Beach Boys), trumpet player Stewart Prosser (Paul Weller) or brilliant rising young innovative talent such as trombone player, Joel Knee, currently a student at Royal Academy of Music. 

One of the most accomplished bands in any genre, The Groove Surgeons are ideal for venues and events where there is a passionate desire to create great, memorable experiences for their clientele.

We’d love your customers to experience what we do. Something a little different from the normal Friday and Saturday night fare. With cross-generational appeal we guarantee your customers will leave with an experience they will remember for a long time to come.
