Groove Buffet is a very good group of musicians who know how to bring the R&B sound right back to the 60's and 70's. We thoroughly enjoyed the vocals and definitely the band. They sang all of the hits I grew up listening to and had the crowd...continued

The music was great and so was the environment. It's on 42nd street, but there were not many tourists that night. Though those tourists were having a blast as well

The music was soothing, from the motown era. audience participation was high/ Great, performers were also great and provided a variety of music from the motown sounds 1969 -1985. Father enjoyed it a great deal. Drinks were ok!

My girlfriends and I really, really enjoy the show. The singers had amazing voices. It was great listening to the music we grew up with. I got kudos from my friends because It was my idea to attend the show. Thank you Groove Buffet.

Groove Buffet were terrific. Because of the blizzard the audience was very small and they played as if it were a packed house. Fun!

This was a very misleading offer- although I enjoyed it and the band was fun- it really wasn't a "show"- it was more that there was a coverband laying while people were eating and drinking. And you can have dinner or have drinks at this place...continued

The show started 30 minutes late but the band was great. The sound was not good sitting in the back area of the restaurant. Did not stay for Set 2 since the show started late. Would like to see again.

Vocalists were terrific, but somewhat overshadowed by the band that was much tooooo loud…..actually occasionally couldn't hear lyrics. Food was fantastic (pulled pork and Caesar's salad and great drink) We will be back!

A really good show with great voices and fun dancing. The huge crowd really got into the music and were moving all over the restaurant. Groove Buffet made renditions of songs that were pretty true and sounded good.
I love BB King's.

i thought the event was in the large room. As far as the music and band, toooo loud for the small room. The band was very good, but the singers I thought was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to loud.

The Band was great and the music was right on key! The lead singer was so good and fool of soul.
The Horns [musicians] were phenominal!
If you like motown, R&B and good music, go see this group.
Only negative, the seating was a little tight....continued

Awful! Bad food and expensive but the worse was the extremely exaggerated high pitch/ear splitting of the singing and music playing. Went there to relax for a few hours instead run out in 40 minutes to save my hearing and from a bad headache. And...continued
