Tongue-In-Groove was founded in 1996 as a funk rock poetry jam band in the style of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Line up changes including Moss Stanley's Nitebridge Trio gave us a more jazz poetry sound in 2002. We still incorporate elements of our former permutations in our more americana, folk-rock, blues sound which we use as an aural landscape for original poems, songs, and covers of heavily lyric, beat tradition song writers such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.
