Midnight Hour w/ Groove Witness
FUNK 'N'SOUL EXPLOSION featuring: MIdnight Hour w/ Groove Witness $10 9pm
MIDNIGHT HOUR Midnight Hour are one of the Chicago's finest and most authentic Soul Bands. The 8-piece band plays the best of Stax/Atlantic Soul and Muscle Shoals R&B from the goldern era of soul music. They play the hits of Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Wilson Picket and more.
GROOVE WITNESS Following in the tradition of other jazz-funk groups like Liquid Soul, Galactic, and Soulive, Groove Witness plays music informed by a driving rhythmic groove and jazz, funk, soul, and blues sensibilities. The members of Groove Witness have known each other for years: Paul, Marcus, & Nicolas have played music together since grade school; Dan & Mike have been playing together since 2007; Marcus & Veronica studied music in college together; Mike, Marcus, & Paul all played in the same jazz band in high school; and Marcus & Nicolas are brothers. This deep-rooted history has helped produce a cohesive and complex sound in every musical project these musicians have collaborated on. When a previous group including some of the musicians disbanded at the beginning of 2013, Paul, Marcus, Dan, and Mike formed Groove Witness as an outlet to write and perform their own new material, quickly adding a talented new vocalist and songwriter and other instrumentalists to the mix.
