GROOVE FETISH combines driving rhythms, seductive melodies, and incredible solos to create their sound. Top that off with soulful lead vocals and powerful harmonies, and you’ll have the band Groove Fetish. GROOVE FETISH is a six piece rock n roll band from Wilmington, NC, comprised of Clay Crotts (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Ethan Schilf (bass), Jason Woolwine (piano/organ), Andrew Massey (drums), and Andy Blair (lead guitar/vocals). They have been traveling and performing relentlessly for the last two years winning over audiences. This year they’ll be releasing their first full length studio album, while continuing to build a fan base through live performances. So keep your eyes open and your dancing shoes on… GROOVE FETISH will be coming to play a festival or music venue near you soon!!!

Southern Belles play a Frank Zappa-esque amalgamation of country, jazz, rock and funk. With an emphasis on song craft and technical proficiency, the instantly ingratiating manner by which this Richmond quartet presents its genre-bending concoctions is embedded with a vitality and vigor that Beethoven would have surely approved.

The Southern Belles are a prog rock band from Richmond who can turn on a gluon. Their debut album, Sharp as a Knife, demonstrates this and much much more.

So many wild things have been said to describe The Southern Belles’ music and live shows and it’s all true. It’s like watching a honky-tonk band fight a blues band with George Clinton as the referee. That’s the best I can say too. If someone out there can describe the Belles’ music in less than words than “Oh my god, they melted my face,” I invite you too. Floor is yours.
