Groove Yard is a four piece jazz fusion band, primarily instrumental, that plays original repertoire.
Huntsville native, Chip Gulbro/guitar, formed GY in 2016. Influences include but not limited to Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Joe Sample, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, and music from other parts of the world such as East Africa and Cuba.
He found three other road warriors with distinguished careers in jazz, rock, and blues: Keith Taylor/keyboards, Bryan Williams/drums, and Chris Ferguson/bass.
In 2019 Groove Yard recorded their first studio cd of all original tunes and have recently recorded an EP called Kaduna.
Local venues GY has performed for include: The Flying Monkey, Stovehouse, Madison Street Fest, Decatur Riverfest, Spice Radio, the Lumberyard, and the 2021 Microwave Dave Day Festival. We had the great pleasure of performing for Panoply 2022 in April, on the showcase stage.
