Event description

Description

Come out for a fun evening of music, dancing, food, drink and prizes! This is our annual Halloween Dance, featuring funk and soul masters, GROOVE KITCHEN!

Groove Kitchen was originally formed in 2011 by guitarist/vocalist Dave Anderson and keyboardist Adrian Chamberlain. Their ambition was to create a funk band featuring top Victoria musicians with an emphasis on tight arrangements. Above all, they wanted to create a red-hot party band. The current line up also features Pedro Arbour on drums/vocals, Steve Moyer on bass/vocals and Eric Hughes on saxophones.

Over four years, Groove Kitchen has evolved into one of Victoria’s most popular musical acts, with regular sold out shows at clubs, dance halls and festivals. Groove Kitchen is a fixture each summer at Butchart Gardens, they have played at Victoria International Jazz Festival, the Blues Bash, the Saanich Fair and many other festivals and special events.

The group specializes in reinventions of funk and soul music, both old and contemporary, with a nod to Latin music as well. Crowds love to dance to such classic funk tunes as James Brown’s Soul Power, Average White Band’s Pick Up the Pieces and I Wish by Stevie Wonder.

Groove Kitchen delves into contemporary material such as Hot in Here by Nelly, Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars and Love Never Felt so Good by Justin Timberlake/Michael Jackson. Also popular are their reinterpretations of such tunes as Bust a Move by Young MC and Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang. Their Latin material (both Anderson and drummer/vocal Pedro Arbour are fluent in Spanish and Portuguese ) includes El Cuarto de Tula and Mas Que Nada.

So wear your most creative costume and come ready to enjoy a fun evening! Tickets are limited.

Please remember the Upstairs Lounge, at Oak Bay Recreation Centre is a licensed restaurant and bar, doors open at 6 pm for dinner service, dancing starts at 7:30 pm.
