Groove Witness Band

May 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

“Following in the tradition of other jazz-funk groups like Liquid Soul, Galactic, and Soulive, Groove Witness plays music informed by a driving rhythmic groove, and jazz, funk, soul, and blues sensibilities.

Groove Witness plays mostly original songs, and most of the band’s original music is collectively composed by the entire band. A tune is usually born with a contribution from a single member – an entire form and chord progression; a simple bass line and a bit of a melody; a guitar riff and a couple chords – and then the band goes through many live iterations of a tune, trying out different musical ideas and concepts before settling on the final arrangement. This organic process keeps the music original and fresh, and tunes evolve somewhat of their own volition as they are played time and again. Overall, the band has lots of fun playing this music and hopes you dig it, too”
