Greene County Family Connection and City of Greensboro invite you to celebrate the music of Motown with The Groove Crew Band. The music of Motown has proven to be some of the best popular music to come out of the last century, and continues to captivate people from all generations. The Groove Crew Band will play their favorite selections from the mammoth Motown songbook. Dance to the hits of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s from legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, The Supremes, Smokey Robinson and The Temptations. Enjoy great music with friends and family while helping Greene County Family Connection fulfill its mission in our community.
Family Connection brings together community partners to develop, implement and evaluate plans that address the serious challenges facing Georgia’s children and families. The partners work to research the needs of children and families in our community, and to address those needs together.
Targie Folds, Greene County Family Connections director, hopes to raise needed funds for projects such as the Teen Maze and local Back to School Bash, as well as helping families in need through out the year.
“The Groove Crew Band is a local band that will get you dancing all night long. We would love to have you join us at Festival Hall for a high energy night,” says Folds.
The Groove Crew Band was formed through a group of friends who wanted to share their love for music. A compilation of many talents, the core nucleus of The Groove Crew consists of male lead vocalist Jarvis Wingfield and female lead vocalist Mica Smith. The instrumentalists are Valente Keen on keyboards, Zsatari Purcell on bass guitar, Angel Ocasio on lead guitar and Oscar Varner Jr. ion drums and percussion. The Groove Crew prides themselves as being open and versatile, catering to all audiences. They perform a wide range of musical genres from Motown, soft rock, R&B and soul, funk and some hip-hop. With The Groove Crew, you don’t just listen to music; you experience the music.
“This is a show you won’t want to miss, “ says Jarvis Wingfield, Groove Crew lead singer. “We have a whole production for the audience. From Diana Ross to Smokey Robinson and Jackson 5 to Boys to Men, we will touch all decades of the Motown musical experience.”
Motown on Main promises to be a good time for all while making a difference in the community.
