Rising Silo Farm Brewery presents The Groove Houndz in concert on Friday, September 17, 2021.
The Groove Houndz is a band based in the New River Valley performing Americana, blues, bluegrass, newgrass, country, folk, Motown and rock.
They seek performers at music festivals and at regional shows that are fan favorites. Then the the best songs are groovehoundifed to match their skill sets. They also perform songs that are "sing a long" friendly.
Their goal is to entertain with music at a tasteful volume level that is fun and engaging for us, our listeners, and the venues.
Band members include Steve Novak, Bob Piscura and Melanie Robinson. Steve Novak is a great vocalist whose guitar skills reinforce the "groove". Bob Piscura uses an electric bass and "porch board" stomp box to drive the beat and Harmonica to reinforce the lyrics of a song. Melanie Robinson adds the haunting sounds of the violin and toe tapping sound of the fiddle.
"Bob and Steve and Melanie live for the grooves They perform up to 10 different genres in every show! There are well known songs that they "groove-ify" often with a twist and great tunes from little know acts they find at music festivals and just from being immersed in music. They know how to entertain and dial their show up or down to match the audience and venue" -- quote from John Ross
