GroovProject has just signed with Afton, a national concert production company. By signing with Afton, GroovProject will be working on solidifying upcoming "live" shows and events to promote the new project.

Afton offers artists hope for finding greater satisfaction and fulfillment in their creative work. They provide this through live performance opportunities and online informational resources. In an industry full of people anxious to tell you that you can't, we're lucky to be able to tell you that you can.

By providing an opportunity for live shows, Afton offers a primary vehicle for artists to share what they have created. Aditionally, we provide unique strategies for artists and advocate a proactive mindset. We encourage them to determine the purpose of their art, establish their definition of success, and then create the plan that will get them there. This missing framework is the only thing keeping many artists from having the career they want.

Afton's events allow an artist's music to come to life. Live performance is where the deepest connection between the fan and artist can take place. Also, at the local level, live shows are the best way to gain new fans. Our shows offer artists hope for growing their following, which is a very common career goal.

Stay tuned for upcoming show schedules, updates and more "FREE" give-aways from the band! - GP

Bio

Born into a musical family from Kingston, NY, Donovan "Groov" Henderson started playing percussion at the tender age of 9. Later he transitioned into playing drums in junior high school and by the time he graduated from high school, Groov did his first recording session with a local gospel group in 1988, performed on television, at Bobby Jones Gospel in Nashville, TN, while on tour with another gospel group in 1991-1992. Also, Groov would play for other choirs in the Hudson Valley area to keep busy. Groov quotes, "I can remember going to the church after school, everyday and practicing my chops, especially working on my timing. I would always practice to a click track and listen to all styles of music". Groov's biggest influence at the time was jazz and gospel music and the ability to always play in churches in which the skill levels of my peers were sometimes superior to mine. Groov says, "This was the truest learning experience for me".

Groov has released and produced two independent jazz albums. His debut album entitled, "Soul Jazzations" was released in March 2006 and his sophomore project called, "The Life, The Loss, The Love", was released in December 2007. Currently, the band has released a new CD, entitled, "Electric Vibes" on Sept 24, 2009.

Groov's uncle is the lead singer for Grammy award winning, Carlos Santana. So, as you can tell, music runs very deep in his family.

GP has appeared in many local hot-spots all-over Atlanta, like Apache Cafe, the legendary Cafe 290, Centennial Park, Pisces Seafood and Jazz, BMI Showcase @Club Vision, Dailey's, Barley's and many others venues.
