Live groove-laden funkrocksoul - tight but loose.

GrooveTrain is a 7-piece live band with multiple layers of vocals, inspired by the grooves of Stax 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; on albums and national radio; and alongside big names. Our line-up includes British Blues & Soul Awards finalists and we've welcomed a range of top touring musicians to guest with us at special shows. (See 'BAND' tab)

At a GrooveTrain show there's no cheese but our own tracks plus a hand-picked selection of smart grooves and hooks from a wide range of cult artists including Stevie Wonder, Prince, Hall & Oates, Earth Wind & Fire, Chaka Khan, 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 our gig diary (See the 'GIGS' tab) for details of our shows at renowned theatres, festivals, and specialist black, funk and jazz venues.


With rave reviews, radio play, and a growing following including BBC Radio's Craig Charles' Funk & Soul Show and global artists Vintage Trouble, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), The Blockheads, and Mario Biondi - we've secured some top gigs including support slots for Brother Strut, Heatwave, Temperance Movement, ASWAD and Wilko Johnson. 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...
