Groovement is a 7-piece funk-rock band that embodies the soul of Northwest Arkansas – fun, unpredictable, and full of life. Currently the band is touring the U.S. in support of their highly anticipated second album, “Clouds.”

Groovement sounds like a Led Zeppelin collided into a Soul Train in front of the Saint Motel; more easily described as: high-energy funk-rock. Their catchy melodies, big harmonies, tasteful solos, and funky grooves easily create songs you can dance to. Deitra Magazine describes Groovement’s music as “a surprising find of funky original tunes that got the crowd boogying out of their seats, as well as some unique renditions of unexpected covers.”

The playful personality and strong, soulful voice of Groovement frontman, Alex Carr, helped him win a ticket to Hollywood as one of the 2011 American Idol contestants. In addition to their decorated singer, the band posseses many years of professional experience and over 30 local award show nominations. This all-star lineup includes Adam Becker (keyboards, organ, synth); Trey Burkett (guitar, vocals); Bryan Burkhart (drums, vocals); Jacob Johnson (sax, guitar, vocals); Tom Smith (trumpet, vocals); and Carlton Rinehart (bass).

Groovement has a reputation for putting on one of the most high-energy and professional live performances around. They’ve been steadily building a following in the United States midwest by being featured at some of the region’s premier festivals: Wakarusa, Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival, the Backwoods Bash, Tulsa’s Mayfest, Phunkberry, Highberry, Hullabaloo, and more.

Groovement’s second album, “Clouds,” is slated for release on August 15, 2015. You will be able to purchase it through all major online retail outlets, this website, or at any Groovement live performance. Following the release of the album, they plan to keep touring, promoting their music, and putting smiles on the faces of movers and groovers worldwide!

Funk Tank
Funk Tank plays original music in the classic funk style, with purposeful detours through related styles (lover’s rock, disco) which evoke the genre-bridging playlists of old school radio broadcasts.
