THE BAND FOR THE REAL MILLENNIUM PARTY AT THE NATIONAL POSTAL MUSEUM
No dimpled chad or split decision here: Truth Groove is our band!
With a fat brass section, wicked bass, great male and female vocals,
and a guy who plays dual trumpets, e-v-e-r-y soul is stirring when
Truth Groove is on stage offering up their potent mix of bohemian
and very cosmopolitan funk.
Truth Groove rips out funk covers playing Parliament,
James Brown and other classics . . . Even the Godfather
himself would have a funky good time!
Boyishly handsome drummer Tommy Barrack plays with three
other local bands . . . Trumpeter Donald Tillery often
plays two horns at once; he has backed up James Brown
and Chuck Brown and leads the group through some
unbelievable jams. Not to be outdone, Eric Hudson plays
four horns at once, in addition to handling the
keyboards. . . . New to the area and to Truth Groove,
guitarist Todd Unger radiates an irresistible energy and
an infectious grin.
Do you want the truth? Can you handle the truth? Because
the truth is right here, baby---the TRUTH GROOVE. We
caught up with Truth Groove at the very stylish Felix in
Adams-Morgan. . . . And this night found a particularly
formidable lineup propelling the unshakable groove into
the street. In addition to Michael Harris (guitar),
Dajando Burzello-Smith (bass, keys, guitar, programming),
Dag Lohmann (sax), and Rebecca Levin (violin), go-go
legends Tillery on trumpet (he's played with James Brown),
and Rickey "Sugarfoot" Wellman---the man who kept the beat
on all of Chuck Brown's seminal hits and a few of Miles
Davis'---were in the house. . . . [Recently] the band
opened for Lisa Loeb and played the Grammy party in NYC.
-Washington City Paper
"The whole idea about Truth Groove is that everyone in the
world is in the band," says frontman, Laurence "Stitch"
Rassin. Well, it seems like all of Washington is into the
We get at least 20 calls a week [from people checking] to
see if Truth Groove's playing,' says Felix owner Allen
Popovsky. The band plays a hybrid of funk, jazz, rap and
rock, often with a changing cast of sidemen. . . .
Truth Groove's appeal crosses all party lines: They're in
with the political crowd and with the swingers who hang
out at Felix.
-The Washington Post
Actually, the truth is that Stevie Wonder dropped in to jam with the
band at a recent gig, and that probably says more than anything else
we could write---so join us December 31st and get into the groove!
