Groovement is a 6-piece funk-rock band that embodies the soul of Northwest Arkansas – fun, unpredictable, and full of life.
Groovement sounds like Robert Randolph and Stevie Wonder ate some New Orleans Red Hot Chili Peppers; more easily described as: high-energy funk-rock. Their catchy melodies, big harmonies, tasteful solos, and funky grooves easily create songs you can dance to. Deitra Magazine describes Groovement's music as "a surprising find of funky original tunes that got the crowd boogying out of their seats, as well as some unique renditions of unexpected covers."
The playful personality and strong, soulful voice of Groovement frontman, Alex Carr, helped him win a ticket to Hollywood as one of the 2011 American Idol contestants. In addition to their decorated singer, the band posseses many years of professional experience and over 30 local award show nominations. This all-star lineup includes Adam Becker (keyboards, organ, synth); Trey Burkett (guitar, vocals); Bryan Burkhart (drums, vocals); Jacob Johnson (sax, guitar, vocals); and Randy Soller (bass, vocals).
Groovement has a reputation for putting on one of the most high-energy and professional live performances around. They’ve been steadily building a following in the Northwest Arkansas/Northeast Oklahoma area by being featured at some of the region’s premier festivals: Wakarusa, Tulsa’s Mayfest, and the Backwoods Bash.
Groovement’s debut album is slated for release on August 6, 2011. Following the release of the album, they plan to keep touring, promoting their music, and putting smiles on the faces of movers and groovers worldwide!
