If it should be the finest, blues & boogie played live, the choice is made quickly: the Groove & Snoop Bluesband. Anyone who has experienced these five fine gentlemen once on stage sees the blues with different eyes. Whether breathtakingly fast and hard at the edge of artistry, or grooving with relish and calm, with an "audience feel well guarantee", the Groove & Snoop Bluesband plays a blues that skilfully moves between traditional and modern, without losing even the Mississippi Moment out of sight.
The five music junkies in the Groove & Snoop Bluesband mix a 12-bar cocktail made from the very best that the stylistic diversity between New Orleans and Memphis has to offer. Since its founding in September 1998, the band has played a deep and entertaining program into the souls of the audience at countless gigs.
Whether at the International Blues and Jazz Festivals in Gronau, Hilden, Idstein, Bad Hersfeld and Meppen, in the jazz and blues clubs of Düren, Leverkusen, Lünen, Essen and Werne or at events in the casino Hohensyburg, in Berlin, the Cologne Tanz- Brunnen or many other venues. This Blues has something special, something magical - A mixture of pure joy of playing, instrumental mastery and grooving rhythms, which are thrown by the actors into the auditorium very confidently and professionally, so that simply no foot stops dancing.
