Perpetual Groove vibes through Ashland
On Saturday Oct. 21, at 9 p.m. The Mobius welcomes funk/ jazz/ trance group Perpetual Groove. Admission is $10 for this all-ages show.
Simply put, Perpetual Groove is the perfect jamband. So it makes sense that "All This Everything," the quartet's sophomore studio effort, weaves a hodgepodge of styles and sounds into a single, slightly manic statement.
This quartet from Savannah, Ga. has a long list of accolades. They were named one of the top ten bands to watch in 2005 by Relix magazine, they performed to over 20,000 people at Bonnaroo, have made appearances at High Sierra and been have selling out the Georgia Theatre since New Years Eve '04.
Perpetual Groove throws down a funky blend of reggae, tribal-style trance rhythms, heavy funk, jazzy improvisation and synth loops, intertwined with inspiring and sentimental lyrics. Their high energy and meticulous craftsmanship keep their songs fresh and surprising.
With veteran producer Robert Hannon at the helm, P-Groove successfully synthesizes the source genres of jazz, rock, funk and trance into a series of tight, polished compositions.
In the process, the collective also manages to create a studio-sounding document, still fluid enough to be filed under jam.
"All This Everything" (Harmonized Records 2004), produced and recorded by Hannon launched the band out of their home in the south and onto the national radar.
Based around the euphoric guitar solos of Brock Butler, "All This Everything" often favors melody over funky grooves, linking its well-charted jams together with government precision.
