What Our Customers Think About us

" Played Brilliantly - All the guests loved the music - Exactly what we wanted for the party - Reckon we got great value for our money - thank you RGM "

Ursula & Rob Foyle, The Dorset Queen Yacht, July 2019

We would like to thank RGM for making our party such a success. They really listened to what we were after and then produced music which surpassed our our expectations. They played wonderful  jazz with our reception drinks and then got everyone dancing after supper. They  are friendly and professional, prompt and efficient. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Caroline and Time Rogers, July 2019.

" Very good, polished sound........Great to hear something different......Great great voices and a great band.......Great sound, bring them back......Very polished, volume was perfect........Good selection of music, look forward to seeing them again......Not too loud,great music, love it !!

Audience feedback at Swanage RBL, April 2019.

" I booked RGM for a surprise 70th Birthday party...had to be postponed...flexible and understanding when we had to change the date. The band were professional and helpful from day one. On the night they created a wonderful atmosphere and managed to get non-dancers on the floor letting their hair down. They have a great bond between them which exudes and rubs off on the guests.

As an event managerfor over 30 years I have seen many bands and the musical professionalism and atmosphere of RGM has to come in my top 10 !!

Bobbie Brown, Kingston Country Courtyard, Kingston, Dorset. February 2019.

"The Retro Groove Mob created a fantastic atmosphere and delivered great entertainment for our New Years Eve party...dancing and singing all night New Years Eve party in years."

George Pitcher, Owner, Bankes Arms Hotel, Corfe Castle

"Retro Groove Mob are fantastic. Their great sense of fun and wonderful musicianship got the party started till way past my bedtime. Everybody wants to see them ( and more importantly hear them ) again."

Andy Bell, Organiser, Scolestock 2017 and 2018

"On a cold dark November evening, many members of the Corfe Castle Club turned out to see Retro Groove Mob, many for the first time . Everyone was delighted as RGM put on an exciting musical show and we are thrilled that RGM are returning to perform again this summer."

Chris Aylward, Club Events Organiser

"We loved having RGM share our special day. They were enjoyed by young and old ranging from 8 to 80!! They played a wonderful repertoire of their versions of well-loved songs, from Fly Me To The Moon to All About That Bass. We would do it all again in a flash."

Mags and Alan, September 2017
