Groove Yard is a four piece jazz/funk/rhythm and blues band, primarily instrumental, that plays mostly original repertoire.
Huntsville native, Chip Gulbro/guitar, formed GY in 2016. He began performing in high school band on trumpet but later switched to guitar and violin. Always looking for new sounds he dove head first into jazz as an adult and has never looked back.
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 four more originals.
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.
