Groove Session

GROOVESESSION is a power rock trio best known for definitive song writing and explosive live performances. Their sound is steeped in old school funk and irresistible soul, while bridging the ideals of classic and cutting-edge jam-rock. The positive energy of this barefoot band is infectious as they play each show like it could be their last.

Driven by the brotherly bond of bassist Ronnie Sanchez and drummer/lead vocalist Manny Sanchez, primal rhythmic force is the backbone of this trio. Guitarist Sarven Manguiat slices through the thunder with licks both tasteful and innovative. From hair-raising, turbo-charged, electric propulsions to acoustic gems with three-part harmonies, their songs transmit elements of magic, emotional gravity and an undeniable call to the dance floor.

Based in Ontario, CA, GrooveSession has over 950 performances under its belt. In addition to captivating crowds at their own shows, they are highly sought-after collaborators, having played with many of today’s greatest bands and musicians. From nights with Leo Nocentelli or Robert Walter in California to Pat MacDonald, Wally Ingram, and Chris Aaron in Wisconsin, Tony Brown and Kim Manning in Iowa, or Walter Salas-Humara at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, these guys leave a deep impression wherever they go.
 GrooveSession has also been honored to open for living legends like The Funky Meters, George Clinton’s P-Funk All-Stars, Little Feat, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, 7 Walkers, Greg Adams, Tea Leaf Green, The Radiators, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, New Mastersounds, Railroad Earth, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Ozomatli and many more.

GrooveSession is currently blazing a trail into new frontiers around the country and winning devoted fans with a combo of their soul-quenching, funkified rock and lovable personalities.
