The band has been together since Jan 09 and between them have more than 50 years of performing experience, playing pop, rock, jazz, funk and everything in between. Performing all time favourites from the 50's right up to the latest smash hits, Dynamo Groove is sure to go down well on any occasion.
The dynamic duo of Rachael and Jonathon (both experienced vocalists) fronting the band gives them a definite edge on the competition. Being one of the most musically diverse bands on the UK function band circuit, their extensive repertoire allows them to tailor their performance to suit any prospective audience. Our individual profiles are as follows

Rachael's career has included projects with the likes of dancer/producer Ricko Baird (Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Maya etc), and ambient dance legend Tom Middleton. Rachael is an experienced deep house/funky house DJ, and has also professionally trained in dance, drama and fashion.

His credits include providing piano music for the 2008 Channel 4 Taste Icon awards, and several contributions to rap artist 43's self-titled 2008 mix tape (which sold over 12,000 copies).
Patrick studied bass guitar at the Academy of Contemporary Music, graduating in 2006.

Just returned from my honeymoon - gutted to be back.
Wedding as class and the band played their part. I was more than happy with their performance on the evening and they got everyone up and dancing. They were energetic, dynamic, great vocalist and played a good selection of songs!
Many thanks for recommending them." Jake Moore, Sept 2010
