At Loose Ends
Take old school California punk and mix it with jam-infused ballads and add a dash of rockabilly and 60's psychedelia topped off by heartfelt blues you get SONIC GROOVE. These guys combine a vast collection of original music that spans multiple genre's along with a clever mix of off-the-wall classic rock covers that you won't hear anywhere else. Formed in March 2011, Sonic Groove is a relatively new collaboration of talented and experienced musicians based in Roanoke, Virginia. Founders and guitarists Rick Anderson and Robert List have been writing music together and performing in the area for over 8 years. Jason Conn, the drummer and serious John Bonham fanatic provides the relentless energy that combines with Art England's solid bass lines and bottom end to produce the backbone and beat that puts the Groove in Sonic. With the masterful and melodic vocals and keyboards by Scott McDowell, this versatile 5-piece band should not be missed. Sonic Groove's debut CD entitled "At Loose Ends" showcases the bands talents and versatility by presenting 13 original songs that embodies multiple styles, genre's and influences. "We are looking forward to sharing our music and making new fans and friends in the region, in Virginia and beyond," says Robert List. He adds, "I think we have a lot to offer that transcends almost every musical style and preference." Don't miss these guys as they continue to grow their fan base, expand their influences and deliver a unique musical style that is Sonic Groove.
