Live groove-laden funksoul - tight but loose.

GrooveTrain is a 7-piece live band established in 2012, inspired by the grooves of Stax, Tamla and Soul Train.

Between us we've played gigs across the UK and beyond, from Wembley Arena and the Royal Albert Hall to theatres and festivals; and on albums and national radio. Our recent UK festival and theatre gigs with the likes of Craig Charles (Funk & Soul Club)Smoove & Turrell and Brother Strut have brought our music to the attention of new audiences and our line-up includes top session and touring musicians - including British Blues & Soul Awards finalists - plus some very special guests. (See 'BAND' tab)

At a GrooveTrain show there's no cheese. Just our own tracks plus a hand-picked selection of filthy grooves and hooks from a wide range of cult artists including Stevie Wonder, Prince, Quincy Jones, Tower of Power, Bill Withers...and more.

We play at dedicated and characterful live music venues across the UK - see our photo galleries on Facebook - and the 'GIGS' tab for details of our shows at renowned theatres, festivals, and specialist black, funk & jazz venues.

        

With rave reviews, radio play, and a growing following including BBC Radio's Craig Charles' Funk & Soul Show, BBC Introducing, Blues Mattersand global artists Jamiroquai, Vintage Trouble, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), The Blockheads, and Mario Biondi, check out our studio and live videos in the 'MEDIA' tab or on YouTube, or come and see us at a live show to feel the groove...
