Imagine an infinitely loopier Madness, or The Specials on crystal meth. New Groove are a pile driving collision of funk, punk ska soul and rock n roll. Prepare yourselves for a whole new blitzkrieg bop."

After 6 years of relentless gigging New Groove Formation have qualified as one of the UK’s most entertaining and energetic live acts on the underground festival and club circuit.
NGF have supported old school legends like, Bad Manners, Neville Staples and Ska Ville UK alongside more recent and up and coming bands such as the Dead 60s, Imperial Leisure and many more. They have graced the stages of many underground parties and festivals; Sunrise Celebration, Beautiful Days, Strawberry Fair, Fordham Fest, Wave Form, Rhythms Of The World, En Dorset In Dorset and Bedford River to name but a few!
They fuse Funk, Ska and Reggae, mix in some horns, didge and percussion, then add energetic tones and electrifying rap. Their power is projected with great force and lifts all unsuspecting audiences in front of any stage. Sometimes where no one is there to start, the curious minds of all ages gather to see where the vibes are coming from, turning a zero audience into a 3 to 5 thousand people knees-up!
With their 1st Album crowd control released in 2007 their second serving WHO MADE THE RULES is set for release at the Bedford River Festival, 17th July 2010.
New Groove Formation is not a band it’s a way of life a dream of many people not just players but fans as well. It is their duty to the planet to carry the inferno across the land and around the world.
