B.C. rising stars The New Groovement are embarking on their most ambitious tour yet, which for this 9-piece R&B, Soul, Hip Hop and Funk band takes them across 3 western Canadian provinces. “Moving a band of 9 people 4200km to do 9 shows in 10 nights, including a ferry and several mountain passes is not easy,” says vocalist and emcee Danimal House, “but we are so excited as this will be our first time touring outside of BC.”
If The Roots had the soul of Aretha Franklin and the energy of Jamiroquai then you’d have The New Groovement. The band’s debut full length album, The Orange Album, was produced by Joby Baker (Alex Cuba, Cowboy Junkies) and won the Vancouver Island Music Awards Album of the Year award. They are currently nominated for Urban Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
