Cancelled – Medicinal Groove at the Pub
March 27 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
It’s funk for your health.
With its first studio album since 2014, Traverse City funk band Medicinal Groove hits the ground floor running – and aims to fill the dance floor, too – with “Fresh Take,” nine tracks of infectious grooves that showcase the group’s considerable instrumental prowess. Singer-keyboardist Jimmy Olson, drummer Chris Burgess, singer-guitarist Matt McAlpin and bassist Jordan Moeggenberg say their latest project reflects “an up-to-date, refined version” of the band with a return to the original four-member lineup of the group that formed back in 2011. Four of the songs previously were released as singles; standout tracks include “Boogie,” “Can” and “Shake,” which are infused with throwback ’70s and ‘80s funk flavors blended with contemporary flair.
