Since 2008, the Groove on Grove music series has been electrifying the scene outside the Grove Street PATH Plaza. The free weekly concert series features a wide variety of musicians, performers, and local businesses.
This Wednesday, the event will feature a phenomenal foursome of bands playing as part of The Latest Noise Showcase.
“Groove on Grove is great because it takes place right outside the Grove Street PATH when people are commuting home from work,” says Mike Kuzan, of The Latest Noise (TLN). “It gives all the bands a chance to get in front of a huge audience who might not necessarily know them.”
“Matt Scuteri is a great band leader who writes songs that gets the crowd moving and singing along,” say Kuzan. The band released an EP earlier this year that was recorded at Silver Horse Sound in Hoboken.
Terra Electric is a music collective operating out of Hoboken. Fronted by Michael Rodgers, the lineup ranges from a power trio to an 8-piece band.
“They just released a debut album on the TLN Record label,” says Kuzan. “It’s a great collection of songs—the band has a unique sound that translates well to a live setting.”
With prolific songwriting, Viktor.digital is currently working on his third album… of 2019. “Bird Brained will be out in June and the follow-up SumoDog will be out later this summer on TLN Records,” says Kuzan. “The live band has been gelling lately and they have shows coming up at FM, Debonair Music and more this summer.”
BWQ formed in January 2018, and has ignited the Metro area music scene through a combination of meticulous songwriting and dynamic performances. “Darryl Joo has also been working hard at developing his songwriting craft and it shows with his new release ‘Crack Up’ EP which was recorded in Nashville,” says Kuzan. “Darryl also is releasing a new song a month as part of a Patreon subscription.”
Thanks to Groove on Grove, these artists enjoy a tremendous opportunity within a well-cultivated local music scene.
“Dancing Tony (Rocket Docket) gets a nice mix of different genres and bands for the season, he has generously asked me to curate a Wednesday night two years in a row and I love being able to showcase the bands I’ve been working with closely,” says Kuzan. “Corey Zack (Cocoon Recording Studio) always does a great job on sound and is integrating himself into the music community as the sound engineer for FM as well as running his own studio.”
Groove on Grove takes place every Wednesday from 6-9 p.m., right outside the Grove Street PATH Station.
