In January 2011 Groove Tang Dynasty began through the collaboration of three seasoned artists, Jonah Brubaker(formerly of POV)Uncle Dave(Spade Monkey)and ST.Rube(Chuggernaut,FTG). After much searching Aj Beck(Chuggernaut,Fith Point,The Booze Brothers) began drumming May 2011 and was replaced with Daniel Qualls(POV,Ideal Weapon) in July 2011 to add the hard hitting percussive flair the band needed, but in February of 2014 Qualls would leave the band on good terms to pursue other interests. After a hiatus, drummer Ross Lacey(adversity in red,salt rock jones) would join the band in September 2014. Currently the band is working on their second album, a follow up to Blood &Honey. The band is known for exciting interactive stage shows and powerful presence. They continue to whittle away at their own niche in music everywhere they go.
