About the Event

Featuring Lady Groove and the Get Downs + Downers Groove!

Fully formed in the summer of 2021, Lady Groove and the Get Downs is a seven piece band hailing from Palatine, IL that mixes funk, jam, pop, and rock influences into a diverse catalog of originals and covers ranging from Aretha to Phish and everywhere in between. The Get Downs, consisting of Drew DelRosario on guitar, Brian Roberts on bass, Chris Schwarz on tenor saxophone, Lei Wang on keyboard and alto saxophone, Natalie Hartnett on backup vocals and the dynamic drumming of Kyle Tarpinian, lay a foundation of energy and soul for the powerful vocals of Katie Nauss as Lady Groove.

A formation of close friends, Downers Groove has been harvesting their sound and reputation since 2012.  From their home base in Downers Grove, they have become well known for blending their influences into a collective, new sound.  Heartfelt lyrics, catchy melodies, high-energy improvisation and a sense of humor weave together a seamless musical experience full of style only old-time friends can brew.  Downers Groove is “well-versed in variety, with a live performance [style] that showcases their skill in onstage communication and intuitive improvisation” (The Daily Herald).  Performing in Chicago since 2012 at such venues as Martyrs’, Reggie’s, The Cubby Bear, aliveOne, Bourbon on Division, and Phyllis’ Musical Inn, they have appeared at a number of music festivals including Homegrown Music and Arts Festival, Dunesville Music Festival, Grateful Bear Campout, Bridgeview Shakedown, Eyes to The Skies, and Summer Camp: On the Road Tour.  The DG flame is catching fire and burning it's way around the Midwest circuit.  To date, Downers Groove has self-released one album: A Long Way (2018), and a live compilation: Live Vol. 1 (2019).
