GROOVE is a group of energetic musicians and artists drawn together for one reason... to have fun rocking the masses! This entertainment group performs using traditional and non-traditional instruments to blend comedy, energy, personality and choreography into performances on stage and on the street. From propane tank hang drums to tubular xylophones, the instruments are the most creative in town, constructed out of construction equipment, everyday knick knacks, and anything else you could think of. Known as the best kept secret on campus, Groove's here to change your life.
Technology has been moving at an unprecedented and exponential rate, changing the very notions of social interaction and the immediate transfer of ideas. Groove is no exception; we too have been swept up in the tech-tidal wave of trending tweets, viral videos, and addictive apps, thrusting ourselves into the chaotic and chrome-colored online world.
In all of this insta-media-mania, we will present our take on the subject with #TRASHTAG, a visual and musical exploration of the conflict between the high-tech and the rudimentary. With our defining high-energy percussion and performance, Groove will be sure to impress by tastefully combining "technology" and "technicality" to rock the masses.
So get out your smartphones and tablets, plug December 6th into your calendar, and bring new meaning to "crowd-sourcing" by attending our big show at the Michigan Theater!
Doors open at 7, show at 7:30. Purchase your tickets online at Ticketmaster (link below), from any Groover, or at the door the day of the show. $5 for students, $8 for adults.Click here to buy tickets online
Thank you to everyone who came to try out for Groove this year; the wealth of talent and personality we saw was nothing short of amazing, and now we are proud to welcome 8 new Groovers to the group! They all displayed an immense amount of potential, so we're very excited to see what the year will hold for us all, especially at our end-of-the-semester shows.
Congratulations to Colin, Daniel, David, Jeongin, Katalina, Kenna, Sameer, and Stephanie, who are all now a part of the Groove family! You guys embody and exemplify rocking out to the highest degree, evoking fantastical images of Groovers past and future joining through space-time to create an inter-dimensional stellar rhythm odyssey. Yeah. Get pumped.
Groove is available to give your event that little extra umph that you've been looking for. We've played for other groups' shows, dance marathons, fashion shows, bar nights, birthday parties, parades, graduation ceremonies, tailgate events, and fundraising banquets.
We also want to share our music with younger generations, and we think that elementary and middle school students would enjoy learning about our unique and creative process. In past years we have done clinics and performances at nearby schools that showcase what we do and educate students on how to think about music in an inventive way.
If you work at a nearby school or are involved with youth outreach, we would love to visit and work with the students. Possible activities include performances by the Groove members, demonstrations on how we construct our instruments, and teaching the students a short song to perform with our instruments.
Contact Groove at email@example.com if you are interested in setting up a guest performance or clinic with us!
