Bands Creative Mission Statement
The band was created by DMHE - David Michael Hewitt Enterprises in the Summer of 2000. I felt the special events industry needed a better consistent energetic, youthful, talented and diverse variety dance band. My mission and goal was to create an interchangeable 6-12 piece group that would be remembered and asked for by their name based on referrals from past performances. The band needed to be a stimulating music expression both visually and auditory. I was getting frustrated and tired of booking and witnessing the same old lackluster casual bands show up at jobs sent out by music agencies. Most often these put together groups of musicians were meeting for the first time. They would huddle for a few minutes before downbeat introduce one another and then quickly try and choose songs they all knew as a unit. Once the bands started they would proceed by meandering through sets while either reading lyrics and or burying their faces in music stands with charts. Definitely boring and detrimental to the energy and personal touch live music offers. The opposite of that experience is the goal of The Platinum Groove. They have earned their identity by paying their dues the old fashion way. By being consistent over time and performing together on numerous jobs as core unit team. TPG Incorporates infectious choreographed dancing and an audience interactive fun party vibe that caters to each event. The band meticulously blazes through hit after hit songs covering over 60 years and styles of music. My formula is simple. I molded The Platinum Groove to be an action band in motion. Always in a state of what I call constant upgrade mode. Part of the formula is adding new hit songs, tweaking the sets and line ups to accommodate the clients specific needs and requests. All while keeping the bands reputation of delivering a great performance show after show, year after year. Summary, it's my opinion that what people hear and see is far more important than what they're told or sold. Please take a few minutes and review the online promo videos and live performances.
