The Music

“The sun went down in honey, the moon came up in wine,
The stars were spinnin’ dizzy, Lord the band kept us so busy,
We forgot about the time.”

John Perry Barlow, from “The Music Never Stopped”

The music of Shady GroOove is a charismatic blend of musical genres from the worlds of rock, blues, funk, Americana, jam, jazz, and classical— conveyed through the melodic voicing’s of violin and keyboards and the rhythmic drive of bass and drums. There’s something for everyone from this unique musical offering. Sit back, chill, and enjoy the sweet melodic passages and improvisational explorations or feel the groove and get up to dance the night away. Either way, Shady GroOove is a musical vehicle that helps one to live in the moment and, indeed, “forget about the time”.


The word “eclectic” is probably the singlemost over-used adjective when describing bands today. In the case of Shady GroOove, the band truly does not fit the mold of any one particular genre. Rather, they select the best musical elements from a diverse blend of artists such as Grateful Dead, Medeski/Martin & Wood, Ryan Adams, Michael Jackson, String Cheese Incident, The Band, Phish, Weather Report, as well as their own contribution of original music. The result is a bold, adventurous style of music that strives to push the envelope while keeping the listener engaged and entertained.
