On Saturday, March 9, from 6-9 p.m., jazz comes alive at Lake Concord Park, located at 95 Triplet Lake Drive. This FREE event, sponsored by the City of Casselberry and 102.5 WLOQ - Orlando’s Smooth Jazz, will entice all jazz lovers to gather and be engulfed in the enjoyment of the transcendent smooth jazz sounds of Euge Groove. Fresh from being on the Bill Boards Top 10, he has been busy keeping things as soulful and innovative as ever.
Saxophonist, Euge Groove (www.eugegroove.com) has been putting out incredible jazz sounds ever since 1987 and during the last several years he has toured, performed or recorded with a "Who's Who" in modern music, including Joe Cocker, Eurhythmics, The Gap Band, Huey Lewis and the News, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville, Eros Ramazotti and Richard Marx, among many others. (Marx included Groove's sax savvy in a duet he recorded with Luther Vandross, "Keep Coming Back," which captured another No. 1 spot for Groove on Billboard's AC chart.)
Groove's playing displays a melodic sensitivity and emotionally captivating quality leans heavily on his innate pop/jazz sensibilities. An exciting highlight of his musical career included performing on a worldwide tour with Tina Turner. He played at her 60th birthday party, filmed at the BBC in London, soloing in front of 40 members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and playing with a five-piece horn section and 18-piece gospel choir. Just recently, his newest album, House of Groove, spawned a number 1 hit on the Billboards chart.
Mark your calendars! Come and celebrate an unforgettable evening of smooth jazz featuring sensational Euge Groove. There will be food and other specialty vendors. Bring your blankets, chairs and friends to enjoy a wonderful evening of Jazz and enjoy this free concert sponsored by the City of Casselberry and WLOQ 102.5 Orlando’s Smooth Jazz.
