Midtown Groove was a Seattle-based, instrumental, contemporary jazz/groove trio, which featured: Tony Atkinson, Doug Marrapodi & Roy Feketitsch. Former members include Michael Schaitel on bass. The trio, relying upon their influences from several genres, finds a way to effectively blend different elements of Jazz, Rock and R&B. One of the more interesting facets of the group is that Tony Atkinson amazingly plays both guitar and keyboards simultaneously; he plays guitar with his left hand and keyboards with his right. Using this approach to deepen the trio's sound, they have successfully and artistically fused infectious rhythms, lush harmonies, and soaring melodies, to form what is known as Midtown Groove.
