Created in 2017, The Groove Surgeons have established themselves as one of the most compelling bands in the Jazz Funk Soul genre. We play music from a range of leading artists including Herbie Hancock, John Scofield, Snarky Puppy, Roy Hargrove, The Meters, Weather Report, Larry Goulding, McTuff, Delvon Lamar, George Duke and many more.
The band usually comes in a 4 to 7 piece format depending upon the requirements of the venue or event. Four piece comprises Keys, Guitar, Drum & Bass, while increasing numbers may add Sax, Trumpet and Trombone. Percussion and additional horns may also be available.
Led by established session keys player, Jody Smith who has played with many world class names, the band also comprises long established professionals Steve Grainger (Sax), Stewart Prosser (Trumpet) and up and coming new names such as Joel Knee on Trombone. The rhythm section is capably staffed by experienced, dynamic musicians, Jerry Marques (Drums), Chaz Collett (Bass) and Julian Bradder (Guitar).
As the band name implies The Groove Surgeons are focused on providing stunning contemporary Jazz Funk Soul Fusions that create a compelling atmosphere, suitable for those who want to dance and those who prefer to sit back, relax and have a little magic to inspire their evenings.
Based on the Norh East Hampshire/Surrey border, we are available throughout London, the South East, South Midlands, Bristol / West regions. We are happy to consider travelling further afield if required.
