The Groove

“It was a wonderful experience to watch you play and see how compelling the music was to children and adults alike.”

“Have you heard these guys? They are awesome!! You’ll love!”

The Groove is a new fusion of old sounds emerging from the Illawarra / Shoalhaven. An amorphous shifting blend of spanish / classical acoustic guitar vibes with driving afro percussive rhythms.

From roots to Latin, blues to middle eastern and eclectic flavours in between The Groove tweak your sense of fun and familiarity. Their synergistic organic sessions have captivated audiences of all ages and cultures from the northern beaches of Sydney down to the peaks of the Snowy Mountains.

The rhythmic knock on your front door can only be… the Beat Meisters! They’ll have your circadian biology in a spinning whirl, they will count the sum of your pulse and mirror it in sonic waves, skew that wayward walk into a dance like prance and take you to a place where you can’t stop, your feet must wiggle and your booty must jiggle.

Drawing heavily on the traditions of African drumming interspersed with Latin and Arabic influences and utilising melodic percussive instruments from all corners of the globe the Beat Meisters never fail to get the punters jumping and the good vibes pumping.
