Groovy Judy / Press

"She's one gutsy musician. She defies San Francisco's shabby-cool fashionistas by wearing glittery psychedelic clothes, refers to herself as "Jimi's Sister" in one of her songs (a whimsical, but deadly move), and further risks hipster derision with the stage name "Groovy Judy" Read the rest of the article here: http://www.groovyjudy.com/gp_jan_2014_article.html

“Groovy Judy Is Back!! Groovy Judy brings back her fantastic Jimi Hendrix show with passion and enthusiasm reminiscent of artists of an older era to The Newark Days Festival, Saturday, September 17. Groovy Judy lives up to her name. Groovy is what she is and groovy is what she does. This guitar slinging, fun loving entertainer pays tribute to her mentor, Jimi Hendrix in her songs and music and she puts just as much passion and energy in to it as Jimi did. In fact, Judy's lively personality, colorful dress and dedication to fun and the enjoyment of life influence her entire repertoire. Known for her glittery top hats and jackets, Groovy Judy brings forth her dominating style with the energy and enthusiasm reminiscent of artists of an older era. Come and hear Groovy Judy on Saturday, September 17 from 3:30pm - 4:30pm on The Musical Fantasia Stage in Area #10.”

“San Mateo Times Groovy Judy, "Groovy Judy" (Hey Judy Productions) Groovy Judy, the young songstress from San Francisco, falls somewhere in between Grace Slick and Grace Jones. She wrote seven of the eight tracks on her self-titled debut "Groovy Judy," and has instrumental help from drummer Dave Hayden, saxophonist Rick Yamashiro, Don Bosco on organ and several others. Relying on Jimi Hendrix-era guitar riffs with strong bass lines and drums, Judy takes us back to the Haight-Ashbury heyday, but with a modern twist of funk. Judy preaches love and peace in tracks like "Forgive," "Peace & Love," and "Hey Dad," and even a little religion in "Heaven" and "I Need Your Help Jesus." But Judy isn't a Jesus freak. She instead sings about salvation and freedom, and in one song calls heaven "a big flea market." The rock music is exceptional and the album's worth a groovy spin.
