Years Performed: 2017
Jennifer B and the Groove is a high energy, four-piece band from the Austin, Texas area. The band plays several genres of music. Jennifer Lindsey (Jennifer B) writes original music that leans toward her musical roots – Americana/Country. Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, B.B. King are a few artists who have influenced Jennifer and her sound. The band plays blues, roots-rock, Americana and even some red-dirt.
In 2016, Jennifer B and the Groove was one of five winners of the 2016 Belk Southern Musician Showcase competition (nearly 3,000 artists competed). In addition to a cash prize, the band performed on Belk’s Road South Tour with stops at major fashion, sporting and music events, one of which was Springing the Blues!
In addition to touring, Jennifer B and the Groove is also in the studio working on two projects. One is a blues EP while the other features Americana with original material by Jennifer. Both will be available later this year.
