Catch The Groove has been a popular draw at such hot spots as Jazzland Café and the stage at the downtown venue Jacksonville Landing (on the river), where they perform regularly. Expanding their regional drawing power, they have performed at the beautiful St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Jacksonville Jazz Festival, Jazz In The Bay Festival In Tampa, Daytona Music Festival among many others.
Their democratic approach to performing is in full effect during Catch The Groove’s explosive live shows, where each member’s talent and energy is on display via prominent lead lines, solos and tandem melodies with other members. Some songs begin with the rhythm section jamming before Michael comes in on sax for a few solo bars before Max begins doubling with him and the rest of the band kicks in. The variety and unexpected surprises are part of the fun and appeal. Some of the cover tunes that go over well with audiences include Rick Braun & Richard Elliot’s “Q It Up”, Ronnie Laws’ “Always There”, George Duke’s “It’s On” and “Secret Garden”, with different instruments mimicking the vocals of the original Quincy Jones version that featured Barry White, James Ingram, Al B. Sure and El Debarge.
