Orange Grove for the Soul

Orange Grove has been around, through ups and downs, in leaps and bounds...Always laying down that wicked sound and pound for pound the number one challenger in the underground. You dig?

Coming from one of the smallest dots on the world globe with the biggest heart, the Saint Maarten-bred band Orange Grove (OG) wants to move more than peoples bodies; OG infiltrates the mind,body and spirit. They are  bringing the Caribbean vibes to the colder capitals of the world and injecting more heart to the warmer ones (however much thats possible).

Charismatic singer Michael Maidwell and close friend (and guitarist) Jacob Streefkerk formed the group in 2001. What started as a hip-hop group turned into one of the most unique blend of sounds to come out of the Caribbean. OGs music is a melting pot of everything they love: traces of rock, hip-hop and reggae are splattered all over their sound. For more than 10 years they have continued to expand their fanbase from the Caribbean to Europe all the way back across the Atlantic to the United States. Currently a group of 5 including BZ on drums, Tim on guitar and Daniele on bass, they form an unstoppable assembly with one goal in sight: spreading the feel-good vibes to the world!    

The OG Experience / The Orange Grove Groove  
Even though they have 2 groove-a-licious albums, 1 live album and 2 vibin singles  on their discography, OG rocks their reputation as a live band like no other. They have the ability to visually display their intent behind every song with their contagious energy and body language (this makes it an impossible task to stand still at any OG concert). They give a different perspective on how to perceive music, which makes every live performance a unique experience-whether youve been following them around in a coat and gloves around Europe or seeing them for the first time with a cold beer and the sun on your face. However, The Orange Grove Experience is about more than making music that every one can dance to. Ultimately, they want to inspire generations to stand up and do whats right.

A big part ofthe members come from different corners of the Caribbean so they are all united in their love for bringing attention to those little rocks under the sun. On the islands, just like around the world, there are a lot of problems. But because the islands are so small, you see the negative effects of corrupt governments and bad leaders more quickly. By frequently appearing at events like the Heineken Regatta in St.Maarten and making special appearances on the neighboring islands, they spread this message by roping in as many islanders as they can to spread the good vibes, all the way home.

So whether you like listening to rap, vibing to ska, grinding to soca, dancing to pop, chilling to reggae, boogying to calypso or spacing out to rock - Orange Grove will grab you by the soul and pull you into their sound without any warning, but with all of good intentions. Their guarantee?  Not letting you go until you have the biggest smile all over your face, soul and spirit.
