JAZZ: Smooth Jazz, URBAN/R&B: Soul
With 25 years of musical experience under his belt, New York producer and CEO of Groov Entertainment, Donovan "Groov" Henderson seeks to take the urban Atlanta market by storm. “It’s a movement.” Groov says. “I call it Nu-Jazz. A collaboration of rhythm and soul, new and old, north and south." With the recent emergence and tremendous success of the Groov Project, his own jazz band, Groov has expanded into the southern region, taking his smooth grooves, unique sound, and piercing percussion style with him.
Born into a musical family in Kingston, New York, Groov started his career as soon as his motor skills would let him- he was last in his line to play drums. All of his cousins were either singing in choir or playing an instrument and one of his uncles, Tony Lindsay, was lead vocalist for Grammy-award winning, Carlos Santana, for over 15 years.
Combining heavy bass lines and melodic overtones with a touch of smoothness and rhythm, TheGroovProject gives birth to a nu-jazz sound like no other. Groov believes that music is the ultimate collaboration, and it is this belief that has brought him to the Atlanta area. Appearing with his band in several local hot-spots all-over Atlanta, Groov is one of the most-sought after independent jazz artists in the area.
