Sprit of the Groove Set for March 12 Release
Atlanta-based funk dance band Voodoo Visionary is set to release their debut album, Spirit of the Groove on March 12, 2015. Recorded at Waking Sun Studios in Atlanta by Chad Singer, production manager and front of house engineer for multi-platinum classic rock band Kansas, Spirit of the Groove showcases the band’s strong improvisational skills, sophisticated compositions, and outstanding overall musicianship.
Spirit of the Groove draws from the various musical influences found amongst the band members. Elements of funk, jazz, disco and rock n’ roll combine to create a sound that is truly unique to the band. Tracks such as “All Week,” “Salt” and “Parasite” have compositional elements reminiscent of Frank Zappa and Return to Forever, while “Take the Wheel” evokes a style somewhere between Phish and Widespread Panic. The driving grooves of “The Heathen,” “Testify” and “Dancin’ Feet” make it nearly impossible to sit still while listening, and the “Kang Gang Anthem” hints at elements of Pink Floyd while paying homage to the festival scene the band holds so close to their hearts. Spirit of the Groove was recorded live in the studio to capture the raw energy and showcase the improvisational expertise that the band brings to their live show.
On March 12, 2015 the band is throwing an album release party at Smith’s Olde Bar with co-headliners Sol Driven Train from Charleston, SC and with support from Lucidea. Go to the show and get yourself a copy of Spirit of the Groove!
