Groove Yard is a four piece jazz band, primarily instrumental, that plays original repertoire and creative arrangements of standard jazz and pop tunes.
Huntsville native, Chip Gulbro/guitar, formed GY in 2016. Influences include Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Joe Sample, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, and music from Cuba, Brazil, the Caribbean, and American pop classics.
He found three other road warriors with distinguished careers in jazz, rock, and blues: Keith Taylor/keyboards, Bryan Williams/drums, and Chris Ferguson/bass.
