 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!

 NOT cancelled last year, we have pictures and 1,000 witnesses to
 prove them wrong! To view pictures from l-a-s-t year's event at Union
 Station, go to http://www.scp.org/gallery.html.

       request---by request of the folks at the bar, by request of
       our guests, and by request of the band---this is an expansion
       of last year's very successful and contagious jam. So join us
       for Irish beer, Irish whiskey, plenty of food, and plenty of
       heresay the afternoon after our epic blowout! No cover charge
       (festive demeanor required).
