There are lots of exciting music events happening around the country on New Years Eve, but we can assure you they don’t come much cooler than GrooveSession at the Crazy Horse. The So. Cal-based quartet has been playing the Crazy Horse for eight years now and every one of their shows has been a pedal-to-the-metal dance throwdown and soul-quenching experience. We’re frankly amazed they’re still able to play in our intimate venue considering how freaking amazing they are. Let’s put ’22 in the rearview mirror and barnstorm into ’23 with a band that always takes it to 11. If you need any more incentive, you might be interested to know that they’ll be including a complete performance of Pink Floyd’s masterpiece, “Animals” as part of the evening’s festivities!

More About GrooveSession:

GrooveSession has a song called “Last Gig” which is about embracing every moment to its fullest and taking nothing for granted. If you like bands that hold nothing back and leave everything on stage, this is the band for you. Fueled by the thunderous rhythmic duo of brothers Manny and Ronnie Sanchez, GrooveSession is as fun to watch as they are to hear. This pair approach the drums and bass unlike anyone else, playing with both raw intensity and breathtaking finesse. Their long manes flow and tumble as they tap in to pure primal energy.

The fresher faces on the block are guitarist/vocalist Kyle Merrill and keyboardist Alex Mello. You might know them from a San Diego band that used to play here called Brothers Gow. Their addition to the lineup has solidified GrooveSession as the monumental jam juggernaut they were always meant to be. Kyle is like a cartoon guitar hero, capable to manifesting anything he wants on the instrument and doing it in such lovable fashion. Alex is the quiet assassin, unleashing a symphony of sound through the magic of his fingers

What we’re dealing with are four instrumental virtuosos, two sublime singers in Manny and Kyle, a wealth of truly inspiring original material merged from the two bands and the ability to whip a dance floor into a frenzy at the drop of a hat. When that signature GrooveSession funky, rocking, swampy soul hits the airwaves, you have no choice but to let your limbs fly. Throw in an electro onslaught of keyboard wizardry, a little bit of So. Cal reggae and copious amounts of freewheeling improv and the element of surprise is more rambunctious than ever. Having nearly destroyed the building the previous night, GrooveSession will be in a rare comfort zone for New Years Eve. The magnitude of this performance will propel us to unprecedented heights as we launch into ’23!
