Enjoy a night of music at Daisy Stocking Park Saturday, July 9, as the city-sponsored Midtown Music Concert Series continues with a performance by The Groov at 7:30 p.m.
The Groov is a genuine smooth jazz, soul and R&B band that is a fresh departure from the traditional or straight-ahead jazz bands that lack "feel" and attitude. The Groov's music will have you bopping, dancing, grooving and feeling great. The Groov is made up of highly-skilled professional musicians, all of whom have been playing for more than 20 years each. Past performances include opening for Earth Wind and Fire, playing at major jazz festivals and opening for other touring smooth jazz artists.
