The Groove Orient is finally recording their debut FULL LENGTH ALBUM! For the last year and a half they have been in and out of the recording studio putting together the new self-titled album, The Groove Orient, which is currently being mixed and mastered. They have teamed up with PledgeMusic to offer an exclusive all access pass to pre-order this album. By pre-ordering the album or any other bundle exclusives, you are becoming an essential part of the album launch campaign. Every pledge allows them to properly mix / master, produce, and market this album to its highest possible potential.
There are several options and bundles available, from the new album on double vinyl or an autographed Fender Stratocaster guitar, to a BBQ with the band, a custom setlist show, or even a song written just for you on the topic of your choice. As of today, they have less than 40 days days to raise the funds necessary to make this thing come to life, so any pledges mean the world! Visit The Groove Orient’s PledgeMusic page here.
The Groove Orient is Harry Ong (Bass / Vocals), Tommy Shugart (Hammond Organ / Keyboards / Guitar / Vocals), Chuck Magid (Guitars / Vocals), David Vanegas (Percussion / Bass / Vocals), and Aaron “Bucky” Buckingham (Drums / Vocals).
Below is a live studio video for the track “Golden Hour” which will be on The Groove Orient’s new album, as well as a live show recording from The Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale earlier this year for the track “Bora Bora” which hopefully will also be on the new album.
Are You Oriented? Welcome to Orientation. This is the Golden Hour.

Leisure Chief is still reeling from their magnificent win in the Orlando Weekly for being dubbed “Best Jazz Act” … though they might call it “R&B-fusion-funk-soul-rock-with-slash-and-jazz-chords” but they didn’t have a category for that, so yeah, jazz works.
Leisure Chief is Derek Engstrom (Drums / Vocals), Chris McMullen (Bass / Vocals), Keegan Matthews (Organ / Rhodes / Keyboards), Christian Ryan (Alto / Tenor / Bari Sax, Vocals), and Jordan Garno (Guitar).
Electric Kif travels up from their home in Miami with their own brand of jazz rock funk fusion to join up with two Orlando juggernauts for what should be a solid Saturday night of music.
Electric Kif is Digo (Bass & Moog bass), Eric Escanes (Guitar), Jason Matthews (Hammond SK2, Fender Rhodes, & Moog), and Armando Lopez (Drums).
