Groovement, a lively, six man funk-rock group from Fayetteville, AR, has been described as what you’d hear if Led Zeppelin caught a Soul Train with Grouplove and they threw a party while headin’ down the tracks to Motown. Their catchy original melodies, big harmonies, funky grooves and impressive solos make up a setlist you can’t not dance along with. That would be enough to please any music fan, but throw in Groovement’s titillating twists on some unexpected favorite cover tunes, and you’ve got a mega-memorable night of live music on your hands.
Anyone who has seen Groovement live will easily understand why fans and event promoters are so impressed: Their sound incorporates funky dance grooves, high-energy rock and roll, pop-style song structure with catchy, melodic hooks, and a flexible jam-band style of improvisation – so no two shows are ever the same. Fans have compared their sound to the likes of Jamiroquai, The Main Squeeze, Galactic and Trombone Shorty.
Their setlist is heavy on the original songs that have given them much traction; they cite a broad range of songwriting influences such as the lead guitar solo styling and chord structures of Pink Floyd and the pop hooks and vocal approach of Stevie Wonder, to the dance grooves and lyrical prowess of Michael Jackson.
