The Groove News February

Welcome to the February edition of the Groove News, the hip happenings of me, Groovy Judy, and my fun and funky band. My goals as an artist are to spread positive vibes through my music and performances, inspire people to be the best they can be and shred on the guitar!

1. Grooviness Love is in the air. Can you feel it? Not just because Valentine's Day is coming up. There's a "love" vibration for me and my music and it keeps on flowing and growing. It started in January with my write-up in Guitar Player Magazine, which is leading to more performances, more YouTube views, more press and more love. I was recently featured in The Daily Republic newspaper for a performance at Gordon's Music and Sound in Fairfield. Here's a short video clip from the show of my song, C# Blues. The 2014 Experience Hendrix Tour contest results haven't been announced yet. However, I received so many votes and so much love, which I truly appreciate!! If you voted for me, please let me know by sending me an email at: judy@groovyjudy.com Everyone who voted gets a autographed digital copy of my Guitar Player Magazine article. Speaking of Jimi, his new book "Starting at Zero: His Own Story" is in bookstores now. It's a great read told from his perspective. Check it out!

Happy February! Keep smiling and spreading the love! 2. Groovy Gigs I've got some love-filled, groovy great gigs this month!

Since we're having a major drought in California and I've got water on my mind, my "Spirit of Giving" charity this month is Charity: Water. I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to them. Their mission is: "To bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations."

My goals as an artist are to spread positive vibes through my music and performances, inspire people to be the best they can be and shred on the guitar! Happy Holidays! Christmas time is here. Happiness and cheer. I love The Holidays! It's probably because I was born during this time of year, (December 23), so it's a happy time for me and my family.

This month, my "Spirit of Giving" charity is Catholic Relief Services. I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to them.

Greetings Groovesters!! Welcome to the November Edition of The Groove News, the hip happenings of me, Groovy Judy, and my fun and funky band.

There's a bit of a chill in the air, but I've got plenty of groovy music and performances to keep you warm.

Recently here in the Bay Area, a drunk driver killed two people while they were out walking their dog. The dog survived, but was severely injured. This story inspired my choice for this month's recipient of my "Spirit of Giving" campaign. This month, my charity is the Peninsula Humane Society. I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to them. Their mission is: "To build healthy relationships between people and animals. They accept all animals in need of care and often provide a second chance to the neediest animals. They also serve as our County's provider of animal rescue and control services."

The Groove News October, 2013

Greetings Groovesters! Happy October, or as I like to refer to it, "Rocktober!" I'm doing plenty of rocking this month, so I think it's fitting. October also means it's time for Halloween tricks and treats and time to "Think Pink" for Breast Cancer Awareness. Speaking of pink, I just got a funky fresh shipment of my groovy purple tie-dye t-shirts. They have a big magenta heart in the center. You feel the love every time you wear one. Pick one up on my website http://www.groovyjudy.com/buy or at any show.

My song "Be Who You've Got To Be" is being used in a documentary called "K.C's Letters." The story is about correspondence with a Vietnam soldier in the late 60s. It's an amazing story of hope, love and friendship. Keep an eye out for it! I hosted a Summer of Love Peace Concert last month and it was truly groovy and peace-filled. Here's a video of us rockin' my peace anthem, "Get Along." http://youtu.be/bAUSNl8DqsY May Peace Prevail on Earth!

Since October is Breast Cancer awareness month, my "Spirit of Giving" charity is Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Their mission is: "To connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support." Happy October. Keep on rocking and enjoying life to the fullest!

The Groove News September, 2013

Greetings Groovesters! Welcome to the September Edition of The Groove News. My goals as an artist are to spread positive vibes through my music and performances, inspire people to be the best they can be and shred on the guitar!

Happy September! Even though Summer is slipping away, I don't have The Summertime Blues. Life is pretty groovy. It's Another Day of me strumming White Rabbit on my guitar as I Dance To The Music and Be Who I've Got To Be. I'm doing my best to Let It Be, Get Along with others and Spread a Little Peace and Positivity.

"May Peace Prevail On Earth" is an all-inclusive message and prayer. It is a meeting place of the heart bringing together people of all faiths, backgrounds and culture to embrace the Oneness of our planetary family. I'm also feeling very "peace-filled," since Saturday, September 21 is International Peace Day. To celebrate, I'm hosting a very special "Summer Of Love Peace Concert," on Friday, September 20. It'll take place at Unity of Palo Alto, outside in their beautiful courtyard from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. The band and I will be performing my original, uplifting, peace-filled and danceable songs mixed with other popular peace-themed groovy tunes.

Since Peace is in my heart this month, as part of my "Spirit of Giving" campaign, I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to Pathways To Peace. Pathways To Peace (PTP) is the International Secretariat of the Culture of Peace Initiative (CPI), which was inaugurated in 1983 and received the UN Peace Messenger designation in 1987. Someone recently asked me at a show why I perform so much. It's simple. I love it. I love playing my guitar, I love singing my songs and other people's, I love being on stage and I love entertaining people. I love it!!

Greetings Groovesters! Welcome to the August Edition of The Groove News. My goals as an artist are to spread positive vibes through my music and performances, inspire people to be the best they can be and shred on the guitar!

Happy August! The Dog Days of Summer are here and I'm buzzin' like a Bee and howling like a wolf: Ahh-wooooooo!! I've got my geetar ready to do some serious slinging. It's "Hot August Rocks" with 11 performances this month. I'm really looking forward to all of them.

In other groovy news, I had the great pleasure of donating my time in July to Second Harvest Food Bank in Santa Clara. We were assigned to sort plums and peaches for distribution. It was hard work and lots of fun. I got to see how their organization runs and I was quite impressed. They mentioned that Summer is a tough time for them because donations aren't as plentiful. So, as part of my "Spirit of Giving" campaign, I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to the Second Harvest Food Bank of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. Their mission statement is: "We provide food to people in need in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties."

I'm truly grateful to our founding fathers who fought for our Independence, as well as the men and women in the military service who continue to do so. The Summer heat has been sweltering and so have the gigs. I've had so many groovy great shows with the band and with Pete and I as a duet that I can't keep up with posting all of the videos from them! "The Spirit of Giving" campaign is groovin' along. So far, I've been able to donate to a wide variety of charitable organizations. This month, I'm donating a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to the Yarnell Emergency Fire Fund of The United Way of Yavapai County, Arizona. The Yarnell Emergency Fire Fund will help those who have lost loved ones fighting the fire with the Granite Mountain Hot Shots and to the residents of Yarnell, AZ who have lost their homes to the wild fire. If you'd like to participate in the "Spirit of Giving," the best way to do so is to come to a show. You'll enjoy great music, feel lots of positive energy, shake your groove thang and help others. As a thank you, you'll receive a FREE Download of my new inspirational single, "One Day At A Time."

Happy July, keep cool, let Freedom ring and rock on!

Happy May! If you're a Mom, Happy Mother's Day too. I have an awesome Mom. She's talented, creative, very loving, giving and the one who encouraged me to play my guitar "like a guy." She's also a great singer.

SoCal Tour In April, I did my very first tour of SoCal with Pete and Jane and it was off the hook. We played 4 groovy great shows, and met a lot of great artists and people along the way. Oh yea, and we rocked it too! Here are some videos for you to enjoy: http://youtu.be/4wgjYn-tWbo

Help Me Rock Bone Bash XXIV!! I have an opportunity to open for Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Night Ranger at 107.7 The Bone's "Bone Bash XXIV." I need your help, please. Vote for my video, "Jimi's Sister," to help me and the band qualify for the slot on stage.

They have set up a Scholarship Memorial fund in his name. This month, I'm contributing a portion of the proceeds from each of my shows to it. If you'd like to participate, here are the details:
