Live At Twisters

Groove Project

In cart Not available Out of stock

We reviewed the first album by this Southern Ontario band of veterans last issue and we were anticipating covering this live set thanks to the Groove Project’s rep. for being a total live party band experience. They are a well-oiled machine that conveys the “let’s have some fun…” credo with mucho aplomb and one has to sit back and give these guys repeat listenings as the level of talent/energy combined is actually quite startling. The horn section of Russ Strathdee (tenor/baritone), Paul Robillard (trumpet), John Shand (alto) is very punchy, tight and impressive and I could see these guys offering out their services a la White Trash Horns. I see lead vocals are portioned out between Buttery (guitar), Charlie Hinkel (bass) and Shand (sax/guitar) and I can’t tell who is who, but all tracks sound better than fine. Buttery’s guitar work as usual, is schooled and tasteful, playing just the right stuff in a strong support role, propelling each tune onward. “Life is Like That” is perhaps the best example with a mean slide guitar from Buttery. Wayne Buttery and The Groove Project are obviously one of the best live Canadian Blues party bands and if you want to have an instant bash or a souvenir of one this disc delivers a truckload of good time energy performed tight and funky. 4 stars for a treat and a testament from Wayne and The Boys. By the time you read this they’ll have picked up a few thousand more “fans-for-life” at various festivals. -Real Blues / September Issue 2004

Waiting

Groove Project

In cart Not available Out of stock

Waiting This is the debut CD from a group of veteran Central Ontario musicians who've been playing for pleasure for some years before deciding to embark on a recording foray. It's because of their long term experience, camaraderie and love of the music that this disc comes out so well. Nine of the tunes feature Wayne Buttery's vocals while there are thirteen tunes in total with eleven being originals. Interestingly enough the two covers are both Milton Campbell numbers which are perfectly suited to Buttery's voice. "Are You Doing It Alone" is my favourite track and I believe if you did a 'blindfold test", nine out of ten would think this was a track off an album from a Georgia or Alabama band. "No way that's Canadian Blues... It's too down-home and too damn cool", would be the typical response. It smokes and it's a natural groove that'll have you cranking up the volume. Song-writing doesn't come easy and when I listen to Buttery's classy "It's Enough To Break Your Heart", I'm impressed by his knack for putting together all the right parts from words to arrangements. This is a very fine Canadian Blues band and a CD that easily makes it into the top 10 of Canadian Blues releases. Four stars for an impressive debut disc from a great band. -Real Blues / November Issue 2003

Tangled Roots

Wayne Buttery and Roly Platt

This acoustic project was intended to capture the feel of a live performance.

With the exception of a few overdubs, each track was recorded live off the floor in a single take.
