Groovatron

  The first time I had ever heard groovatron, I had a head full of acid, sitting by my campsite in the middle of a bluegrass legends backyard (bill monroe bluegrass jamboree).   Groovatron had landed  the midnight slot of the opening night of f.u.n.k. festival (Victor Wooten's brain child)
    The stillness of the night was cut by the warming up of a saxophone.  As we all wandered up the hill and through the trees in the pitch black, always moving towards the sound of the sax.   I cleared the tree line right as the band picked up an I was hooked.
    The entire band had painted themselves black and wore black clothing so it appeared no one was onstage.
One of the most amazing things about that night was the use of liquid oil projection,  a dying art using colored alcohol and mineral oil pressed between two pieces of glass and placed upon an overhead projector.  as  it heats up it starts to produce bubbles within the mixture and then move on its own free will.  simply amazing.

Hailing from a hammond indiana, this jazz/jam/rock fusion band tours constantly, delivering energized creative shows night after night at a small dive bar  possibly near you.

Here is a link to their song "Outcome SOS"
 "shaunza a night sky"
