So Glad You Came
Detroit's funkiest foursome, The Brothers Groove, are famous for their frenzy-inducing live gigs and an instrumental interplay that borders on telepathic. Formed in 1999 by Vocalist/Keyboard player Chris Codish and Bassist James Simonson, The Brothers Groove expanded from a jazz trio to a full force powerhouse quartet. Along the way they have released three CD's. The critically acclaimed 'Clamp it Down,' the live CD 'Layin' in The Cut' and their latest 'So Glad You Came.' Fans and peers have been spreading the word about this incredible band that has been honored with over 15 Detroit Music Awards. So what do The Brothers Groove sound like? It's the hardest question to answer for these unabashed music lovers. A soul food stew of Detroit funk, hipster jazz, and stoner rock, seasoned by the ups and downs of living in one of the most fertile musical cities in the world. Oakland Press and AP writer Gary Graff describes them as 'virtuoso funk/rock/jazz alchemists.' The only way to really find out is to see them live and experience their musical chemistry. The Brothers Groove have a habit of attracting the best musicians to their shows, who are often so impressed they leave the audience and join the stage to get in on the action. These have included drop-in guest performance from Kid Rock, N'Sync's J.C. Chavez, and Blues Traveler's John Popper. The band is also the only rock band featured at the Ford Detroit International Jazz festival. Nobody else sounds like The Brothers Groove. Have you heard them yet?
