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.
Coming Up – BRIXX SIXXTH Anniversary Party 1/5/15
Our Super Fun Annual Chistmas Benefit – 2014!
The Mighty Groove insures groove that lasts all through the holiday season by inviting you to our annual Christmas Holiday Party at Aqus Cafe on December 12, at 7pm.
Research(1) has shown that our Annual TMG Christmas Holiday Party cures holiday related problems including “Black Friday Freak-Out” and the ubiquitous “Too Much Turkey and Tryptophan” along with countless others. This is now well understood. Funky music, fine dining & libations, fantastic partying and dancing with friends and family with proceeds going to benefit The Petaluma People’s Service Center seem to have this effect!
Now, if that’s not enough to get your yule log fired up, we’ll be having some of our most amazing guests sitting in with us throughout the evening.
And, to ensure a safe holiday landing easing you into the New Year, The Mighty Groove will be playing our 6th Brixx anniversary party on Jan 5th. Jen, Noel and the Brixx staff are some of the finest and always make sure this blowout is memorable! Save the date!
Grab those reindeer antlers, jingle bells, mistletoe and your holiday cheer and we'll cya there!

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!
