Fri. March 17, 2017

Doors 8pm/Show 10pm
Pay-What-You-Can

If The Roots had the soul of Aretha Franklin and the energy of Jamiroquai then you’d have The New Groovement. The band seamlessly blends elements of R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears that is as unique as it is versatile. Punchy horns, sweet vocals, clever rhymes, and tight percussion combine to create energetic, feel-good music that will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!
