Formed in 1999 The Brothers Groove have created quite a sound of their own. They’ve released two studio CDs and have collected almost 20 Detroit Music Awards as well as much critical and popular acclaim. Oakland Press and AP writer Gary Graff describes the group as "virtuoso funk/rock/jazz alchemists.” There have been a few line-up changes over the groups history but founding member Chris Codish (vocals and keyboard) has remained the rock solid front man and guiding light to a group that has featured some of the best and brightest musicians Detroit has to offer. The current line up includes Erik Gustafson on guitar, Skeeto Valdez on drums, and John Dunn on bass.
The Brothers Groove knows how to get the party started and are bound to create groove throughout the entire body. “It’s impossible to hear (them)… without becoming a booty-shaking bobble-head,” says former Metro Times editor Jeremy Voas. During their performances they cover a wide range of material from their own distinctive originals to covers that few bands dare to tackle by such artists as Frank Zappa, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, and others. Their live show interplay and jamming borders on telepathic.
