The Groove Orient
The musical collective known at The Groove Orient started out as a school project that developed into a journey to create and perform live music around the world while transforming the musical landscape of their hometown.
Founded in 2013, The Groove Orient was assembled to perform a one-time show for the WPRK college radio station music festival, Fox Fest. With the success of the show, one week later they found themselves in the Full Sail University recording studios cutting their first single titled “Rush.” That summer, the band began writing music and rehearsing several times a week, eventually landing themselves a weekly residency at one of Orlando’s top live music bars, Tanqueray’s. You can still find the
band here every Tuesday night they are in town!
The following year, The Groove Orient released two EP’s titled “Welcome to the Show” and “Generation Y” which launched multiple nationwide tours with the goal of spreading their music far and wide. During this time, the band was awarded Best Experimental Act and Best Jazz Act by Orlando Weekly’s Best of Orlando Guide. They have been getting crowds to Rock n Roll from Suwannee Hulaween to Orange Blossom Jamboree, Hometeam New Year’s Rally and everywhere in between.
The Groove Orient is set to release their debut full-length, self-titled album this December followed by a national tour in support of the record. For more information visit www.TheGrooveOrient.com
