GrooveSession is always a good time. This Southern California band brings a Movin’ Groovin’ high energy Rock Show with flavors of Jam Rock, Funk, Jazz, and Blues. Distinctively one of today’s musical artists with a sound of their own, a fun message of hope and a simple vision of love for the world. Taking the music but never themselves too seriously GrooveSession has an appreciation for all things honest and brings positive energy, musical content and a spirit that resides in all people.  

Led by singing drummer Manny Sanchez, along with his younger brother Ronnie Sanchez playing bass guitar and completing an unrivaled rhythm section. Natural harmonies in life as well as voice you can't help but move once the GROOVE is in SESSION. Now joined by longtime friend Danny Avila on Guitar as well as Ricky Hopkins on Saxophones, and Chad Patrick on Percussion. This band of friends and musical masters have now revved up the GS sound and live show into a whole new spectacle.  

Catch a session!

They have opened up for Los Lobos, Little Feat, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, George Clinton’s P-Funk Allstars, New Mastersounds, The Funky Meters, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Pimps of Joytime, Ozomatli, Railroad Earth, Tea Leaf Green, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band just to name a few. 

 “This is a ‘coming of age’ of a great band who have ‘earned their stripes’ the ol’ fashion way, touring and bringing their music and amazing talent to the people. Now, the new album by GrooveSession speaks the truth about love, life, and living the good times!” John Avila, Musician/Producer
