Grogus | 8:30 PM
Grogus formed in 1995 as a side-project of award-winning jazz quartet Squat. Squat co-founder and bassist Carl Lindberg started the group as a vehicle for experimenting with a larger band with horns and percussion. Originally the group played Latin and funk versions of jazz standards with saxaphones and extended percussion line-ups. Over time Grogus learned Latin Jazz music from Tito Puente albums and then delved deeply in the Afro-Cuban masterpieces of Isreal "Cachao" Lopez, whose music and style still make up a huge part of the Grogus sound today. With the addition of trombone/piano-man Kevin Hyde and Venezuelan-born multi-intrumentalist/singer Tino Garrido, Grogus moved into playing more traditional Cuban and Caribbean styles. iMOYUBA! percussion ensemble leader Manito Wendel also fortified the group's traditional folkloric drumming foundation.

Grogus has won the Flagpole Athens Music Award in both the Jazz and World Music categories. Our music is conscious and uplifting. We seek to spread joy and leave seeds of symbiosis and harmony in our wake. Lets Rejoice through song and dance! Lets Evolve in our attitudes and actions! iSALUD! ONE LOVE! MAHALO! ~~~SHANTI~~~ more >>>
