The Groove, located in New York, NY, is the only place in the city to hear a never ending supply of live R&B, funk and soul music. It is looking to book local to touring solo artists and bands to perform live on all nights of the week. The Groove welcomes all funk, soul and R&B musicians. Artists must be able to draw at least 40-60 people to the show and be 21 years and over to play.

Selected artists receive:

  • Artists will be compensated. This amount will be negotiated at the time of booking.

  • A sound system and a sound engineer will be provided at the venue, but artists are responsible for bringing their own instruments and any additional equipment.

The Groove, capacity 140, has evolved into a roster of rotating house bands comprised of the best musicians and performers in the city. Sure, the bands have changed slightly over the years, but as musicians have come and gone, the thing that remains consistent is the talent and passion of our musicians.

In addition to all the great bands featured here at the Groove, it is not at all uncommon to see celebrities such as Chaka Khan, Lisa Lisa, Peter Guns and Lord Tariq to name just a few jam with one of the Groove bands. In fact, even Prince and future hall of famers Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Strahan have been spotted doing their thing at the Groove. In addition to famous artists stopping in to jam with the band for the evening, most of the Groove musicians have toured with legendary artists at one time or another.
