The New Groove Orchestra

The New Groove Orchestra

BandJazzFunk

When a synthesis of sounds serves to send your senses swerving and curving through intradimensional perceptual conceptions far funkier than anything yet imagined…you may just have entered the world of the New Groove Orchestra...

Biography

Beginning as a jam in the cramped basement of Mcgill University`s Douglas hall, the New Groove Orchestra has grown to be a full-force Funknomenon: in the past two years they`ve been playing popular venues all over Montreal, Toronto, Vermont, and New York as well as releasing their first album: ìllharmonic.

Its just nine young musicians trying to bring you the old school sound of funk and r&b with modern hip-hop vibes and some jazziness thrown in there for flavour. Five horns make a screaming wall of sound while the rhythm section keeps the dance floor bumping. Meghan Patrick`s soulful and sexy vocals are sure to make you holler for more...that is if you`re not too astounded to speak! For the Freshest Funk straight from the vine, grab ahold of our rhythmic remedies. Administer three doses of NGO daily; for best results, apply a generous amount directly to the auditory region for ten minutes or until grooving. If unfunkiness persists or dependence occurs, consult the events page for a walk-in clinic (AKA jamtastic concert) near you!
