Buckeye Music Magazine's BLACK FRIDAY II featuring Grooveshire & Minds Eye at J-Alan's in downtown Dayton Friday November 23 at 10PM.
Grooveshire is an Ohio born band dedicated to quality song writing. Their dedication to quality song writing makes them one of nation's premier acts. Their unique tone of “Louisiana Bayou Grunge” places them securely into great musical cities across the country. When seasoned guitarist Jacob Jones joined the band in Late 2006, the group quickly elevated their powerful blues-rock swagger into something completely unique and unparalleled to the region. Chris Melfi's amazingly powerful yet soulful vocals remind audiences of the fascinating tones produced by great rock n' roll front men such as Steve Marriott and Robert Plant. Jason Mollette (guitar) and Mike Hennel's (percussion) "vintage throwback" approach to songwriting help keep the group honest. " Grooveshire has taken some well-loved time-tested recipes and put their own mark on them. You might be able to identify some of their influences, but they’re not just copying licks. You can cop an attitude, but you can’t fake soul. Grooveshire's got soul."
The group's musical reputation continues to grow. They tour consistently and have shared the stage with some of music’s most accomplished acts; such as Robin Trower, JJ Grey and Mofro, Rusted Root, Davy Knowles & Backdoor Slam, Blues Traveler, Indigenous, and many more. They have strung together hundreds of shows over the past few years and are widely considered one the hardest working bands around. Their unique style places them comfortably into numerous markets around the country, enabling them to frequently venture into both familiar and unfamiliar places with a warm and receptive response.
