The Mighty Groove’s mission is hip shakin’, danceable funk and retro-soul. Those who groove on funky retro, and soul/jazz will appreciate The Mighty Groove’s soulful covers of hits made golden by War, The Crusaders, Michael Jackson, AWB, Tower of Power, Prince, and others. TMG digs a deep groove as we explore the relationship between contemporary jazz, funk, and R&B. Fronting the band are sizzling saxophone sensation, Susan Copperman, and soulful, sultry vocalist Lyn Carpenter-Engelkes. On bass is the incredibly funky Jim Cervantes. Supplying our wah-wah needs is exciting and adept guitarist Chick "Shaft" Petersen. Drummer Greg Rocha is always in the pocket. Neil St. Andrew pumps the groove on the mighty Hammond, and Robert "Conga Bobby" Ramirez gives us some Latin sizzle with his hand drums and percussion.

The Mighty Groove CD Coming Soon!
TMG has been groovin' in the studio. We've got tunes in the can and ready for mixing. Stand by for our CD release party! Mucho thanks to Chick Petersen and his most excellent Chick's Place studio in San Rafael. It's good to have a guy in the band who has a recording studio!
