Bill B booked Apollo Groove for their event on 15th September 2009
Apollo Groove took our international awards gala dinner to a new level. From the opening saxophone set during the welcome reception to live walk-up music through to a sensational dance act followed by a ‘must-dance’ set by the full band, everyone’s experience was enhanced by our choice of band.
Our event attracted 500 guests from 51 countries with representatives of all the top non-alcoholic drinks companies including Coke and Pepsi. We have had dozens of comments about the quality of the whole event and particularly the band.
Deciding to add ‘live’ walk up music for the awards presentation itself was a first for us, and the decision proved totally right. The ‘stabs’ ranged from intense to amusing – our Managing Editor walked up to the Mission Impossible theme! – and caused one of our guests to remark that it was ‘just like the Oscars’... On the sheer entertainment side of things, check out this band. They are awesome.
On the business and event organising side, I have to say the band offer tremendous value for money, backed by the highest levels of professionalism and heaps of clear and concise communication. It was great to run an event where such a key element was not on the worry list. The guys were so up for it and so on top of their game that several people asked if it was ‘our usual band’, thinking that we must have worked together before !
All I can say is that we can’t wait to work with this band again....
