5 stars - The Groovy Blues are Highly Recommended
booked The Groovy Blues for their event June 2021

“The Groovy Blues are not your average three-piece blues outfit. Slapping bass, resonant vocals, sensitive drumming, this trio never fails to captivate even the most sluggish of audiences. Always a firm favorite of mine. They are full of energy and never fail to deliver a good time. Three incredibly talented musicians that radiate warmth, enjoyment, and passion. Something very special happens when the three of them take the stage together, creating an evening you won't forget.”
