victoria very own local ban "THE NEW GROOVEMENT" will open this show ..What happens when you mix sweet R&B and sultry soul together with a splash of hip-hop, and add a generous helping of funk? You get a genre-bending mash-up of the funkiest, hard-groovin’, booty-shaking dance music that is The New Groovement. Ten members work their collective magic to create the group’s powerhouse sound. At the forefront of the band is the radiant Stevie Wise with her beautifully commanding voice, and Shane Blaq, her ever-clever partner-in-rhyme, spittin’ both playful and poignant rap lyrics. Funky rhythms get you on your feet while the big-band style horn section raises the roof with their jazzy licks and uber groovy dance moves. With the New Groovement it’s not just a band - it’s an experience!
