GrooveSession is always a good time. This Southern California band brings a Movin’ Groovin’ high energy Rock Show with flavors of Jam Rock, Funk, Jazz, and Blues. Distinctively one of today’s musical artists with a sound of their own, a fun message of hope and a simple vision of love for the world. Taking the music but never themselves too seriously GrooveSession has an appreciation for all things honest and brings positive energy, musical content and a spirit that resides in all people.
Led by singing drummer Manny Sanchez, along with his younger brother Ronnie Sanchez playing bass guitar and completing an unrivaled rhythm section. Natural harmonies in life as well as voice you can't help but move once the GROOVE is in SESSION. Now joined by Danny Avila on Guitar as well as Ricky Hopkins on Saxophones, and Chad Patrick on Percussion. These three long time friends and musical masters have now revved up the GS sound and live show into a whole new spectacle. Catch a session!
