Below are just some of the many positive comments and reviews we have received over the years from customers and supporters:
  • "You were great as always.  I loved the wide range and eras of music you covered - and so beautifully.  I can't think of anyone who could perfectly blend jazz, sass, soul, vamp show tunes, contemporary and old school ballads, folk, country, and opera... as perfectly as you and GrooveSpan."
  • "You guys are the BEST!  Loved every musical note!  And watching Jennifer's face and body move during a song... She becomes One With The Music!  It's Awesome!"

  • "Thanks for an outstanding performance at the CCAA Gala!  Everyone enjoyed your music, selections, and arrangements. You were 'instrumental' in making the Gala the best ever!"


    -- Judy Crawford, Charles County Arts Alliance Awards Gala, 11/15/14

  • "The festival was great, and my siblings and I were first time listeners of your band.  We loved the assortment of tunes and great energy of the group members.  We've decided next time we will sit down with a bottle of wine and just soak it in, especially if GrooveSpan is performing."


    -- Toni Steigerwald, GrooveSpan Fan at Riverside Sotterley Wine Festival, 10/04/14

  • "What a terrific night dancing to the cool tunes of GrooveSpan at Blue Dog [Saloon].  Jennifer Cooper and the band do not disappoint.  Rarely do I have the opportunity to have such a magical evening!"


    -- Leslie Johns, GrooveSpan Fan, 02/01/14

  • "GrooveSpan was one of the best musical experiences I've ever had at Greenbelt's New Deal Cafe!  Versatile?  Positively!  Jennifer is amazing - from crooning, to Carmen, to Janice Joplin. Sexy, terrific performer. The band is made up of excellent musicians, every one. I thought the drummer's singing selections were perfect, fit his voice just right. I've been enjoying the CD I bought that night. Especially good while driving the beltway!"


    -- Barbara Bjanes, New Deal Cafe customer, 01/10/14

  • "OK, this is the coolest band around! Had them at our private party for the third time on 8-31-13. Told Jennifer that party-goers were ages 30 to 82 and GrooveSpan made the music happen. Seventy-two Cobb Islanders danced for hours. We now call them our House Band....for all of our events."

  • "On behalf of the Indian Head Center for the Arts’ board of directors, I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed your musical tribute to the Rat Pack era.  It was right up my alley, so to speak, and [GrooveSpan] made all the guests want to jump up and dance – which so many did.  It was a fun evening and your personal renditions were great. In addition, it was very gracious of you to donate a great auction item.  You had three aggressive woman all vying for your private musical evening and the accompanying CDs. It was so thoughtful. You are a  beautiful vocalist and a warm personality.  No wonder everyone who hears and knows you loves you.  Count the 160 guests in attendance on Friday."

  • "We received so many pleasant comments about the entire event, but many of them were about how good you guys were!  We could not have been more pleased.  When I saw Jennifer, I told her to put us down for the 4th next year!"


    -- Kirk MacKinnon, PAX River's Edge Conference Center:  "July 4th Celebration, 2011"

  • "Words cannot explain what a wonderful evening [GrooveSpan] provided for Uncle Lowell at his 100th Birthday party.  Everyone from our house painter, to the environmental attorney, to the former Director of Research for the Federal Reserve under Greenspan... loved your music.  The music was perfect and Uncle Lowell knew just about every song you [performed]. This morning, our phone started ringing and has rung all day about what a great evening you provided.  Thank you so very, very much.  We WILL have you back!!!"  


    -- Bud Siemering, host of Uncle Lowell's 100th Birthday Party at his residence, 09/08/12

  • "I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed your performance at my parents' party.  Everyone went on and on about how good you all are!  [We] appreciate all you did to accommodate the extra little things [we] threw in [i.e. wireless mic system for announcements, laptop and ipod set-up through sound system for karaoke and special music, etc.].   Personally, I couldn't imagine having any other band but GrooveSpan for this party.  Besides all of the wonderful people that came to celebrate, you guys were the heart of the party!"
