"Imagine an infinitely loopier Madness, or The Specials on crystal
meth. New Groove are a pile driving collision of funk, punk ska soul
and rock n roll. Prepare yourselves for a whole new blitzkrieg bop."
Ben Marshall, Uncut Magazine 2011

After 6 years of relentless gigging, New Groove Formation have
qualified as one of the UK’s most entertaining and energetic live acts
on the underground festival and club circuit.
NGF have supported old school legends like, Bad Manners, Neville
Staples, The Beat and Ska Ville UK alongside more recent and up and
coming bands such as the Dead 60s, Imperial Leisure and more recently
The Levellers, Dreadzone, Zion Train and the Free Stylers. They have
graced the stages of many underground parties and festivals; Sunrise
Celebration, Beautiful Days (main stage), Boom Town (Electric Circus),
Bestival (Polka Stage & Club Da Da), Strawberry Fair, Fordham
Festival, Wave Form, Rhythms Of The World, Endorse It In Dorset,
Bedford River Festival (main stage), Alchemy and Play Group (Brighton)
to name but a few!
They fuse Funk, Ska and Reggae, mix in some horns, didge and
percussion, then add energetic tones and electrifying rap. Their power
is projected with great force and lifts all unsuspecting audiences in
front of any stage. Sometimes where no one is there to start, the
curious minds of all ages gather to see where the vibes are coming
from, turning a zero audience into a 3 to 5 thousand people knees-up!
New Groove Formation is not a band it’s a way of life a dream of many
people not just players but fans as well. It is their duty to the
planet to carry the inferno across the land and around the world
