Charity Event at The Crowne Plaza, Newcastle

Groove Allstars were invited for the 2nd year in a row to perform at The Sick Children’s Trust Snowflake Ball at the Crown Plaza in Newcastle. The event organisers and guests loved the band from the first time and said they had to have them back.

Here is what the client had to say about Groove Allstars service and performance:

Groove Allstars performed at The Sick children’s Trust Snowflake Ball and they did an incredible job. This is the sixth year we have hosted the ball, and each year we aim to grow and improve from the previous event to give our guests an unforgettable night with the hopes of raising vital funds to allow us to support families with seriously ill children. The service provided was excellent with great communication between myself Like it Live Music and the band from the beginning. On the night they had the dancefloor packed with very happy guests who were busy grooving away. I would very happily recommend Groove Allstars for any event!

Format & Production

For this corporate event entertainment in Newcastle the band was booked to perform for 2 x 1 hour sets after dinner and fill in with mixed party music in their short 15 minute break. We also supplied full sound and lighting production with engineers as well as background music over dinner and wireless microphones for speeches and auctions. The band and sound company work at The Crowne Plaza in Newcastle often and are very familiar with the logistics, set up and how to get a great sound in the ballroom.
