Paying homage to the R&B, Motown and Soul legends, and founded solely on passion for the music, Groove Buffet formed in early 2005. The band is quickly on the rise and has become one of the best tribute bands in the New York Tri-State area. Yet, it doesn't seem right to call a group like Groove Buffet a tribute band. Unlike some tribute bands, Groove Buffet is not performing a routine. They don't dress up in 1960's attire, prance the stage like James Brown, or play note-for-note solos. Groove Buffet is much more attitude than imitation, and captures the true spirit of what the music is all about.
Their music creates an environment where fellowship can thrive, and people come out to each gig for that atmosphere. Groove Buffet has gained praise from R&B, Classic Rock, Motown, and Soul fans alike, as well as the younger "jam band" crowd, which has become attached to the grooving sounds the band brings to the table each and every show.
Groove Buffet has an extensive song library from which it crafts each show's set list, providing an entire night of material featuring the sounds of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, Otis Redding, James Brown, Wilson Pickett and many more artists.
