V-Groove has established itself as one of the premiere bands in the Southeast/Midwest. Their performances show fluency and versatility in the genres of roots music: blues, soul, R&B, funk and rock. V-Groove is hard to define due to this diversity. However, one thing is for sure…everything V-Groove does has energy and will make you move and have a good time.
With a vast repertoire that spans Al Greene to Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison to Delbert McClinton, James Brown to The Rolling Stones, V-groove will keep you movin’ all night.
V-Groove Members are experienced musicians that have shared the stage and/or toured with a variety of nationally renowned artists, including Slash (of Guns ‘n Roses), The Average White Band, Steve Ferguesen (of NRBQ), Delbert McClinton, Ian Moore, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, Taylor Dayne, as well as many popular local and regional acts, including Greg Foresman (of the Martina McBride band), Danny Flannigan and the Rain Chorus, The Java Men, John Mann, Squeezebot, Dewey Kincade and The Navigators, Junkyard Jane, Planet, and others.
What the critics are saying…
“Rhythm, blues, and soul songs that will make you move.” – The Courier-Journal
“Definitely the hottest band in the region.” – The Messenger-Inquirer
“The seven piece band was full of smooth grooves and pure funk. They may not have been a pure blues band, but they were a really good band at whatever song they chose.” – www.bluessource.com
“V-Groove harkens back to a time when bands played with brass sections, complex rhythms and serious soul. Their music covers soul, funk, and blues from Jamiroquai to James Brown.” – Velocity Weekly
