The New Groovement / Press

“The group plays a blend of original tunes and brings a variety of influences to the stage from the band’s 11 members”

“...an album to check out for anyone hoping to listen to some excellent artists and some truly great tracks”

“[They've] cooked up a big greasy pot of brassed up goodness. Boasting a smoking four piece horn section and three percussionists, The New Groovement packs a wicked heavyweight punch.”

"They're leaving a funk-infused collar-popping impression on the bc music festival circuit as well as reminding music lovers what it's like to have real instruments in a modem day chart topper"

“There is little more fun and exciting around Victoria these days than getting sweaty and dancing your face off to the ripping-good tunes of The New Groovement. These guys bring it, every time they're on stage. And as a music programmer, I've always been grateful their recordings capture much of that great energy as well.”

Kelly Nakatsuka - CBC Radio

“Adding a rapper... is what sets TNG apart from most other bands in Victoria”

Nathan Ambrose - CFUV101.9FM

“The New Groovement shows are filled with high-energy funk, soul, R&B and hip-hop music”

“If you were hoping for a slow number to snuggle up to your sweetie then you were shit outta luck...”

“...absolutely stunning soul fire vocals of lead singer Theresa Pasaluko...”

“The New Groovement have this blend of 1950s big band sound mixed with jazzy R&B vocals and modern hip hop that work well together... The New Groovement will get you, well, grooving!”

“The New Groovement has made their way around town livening up such venues as Lucky Bar, Upstairs, and Logan’s, even pioneering Victoria’s first Funk Fest last year.”

“Absolutely invigorating to the ears, The New Groovement has their fans dancing every time and these guys are packing venues full of music lovers.”

“... one of the best bands of its kind ever to come out of Vancouver Island or the lower mainland”

“Having seen the New Groovement three times since the Victoria Ska Festival, I can confirm their high levels of both awesomeness and fun”

“The epitome of live music”

Dane Roberts, Shaw TV - BC Ska Society
