Perpetual Groove's Return Exceeds All Expectations June 01, 2015 08:00
Since the announcement of Perpetual Groove's indefinite hiatus in January of 2013, those of us who grew to love this band have been uncertain as to whether or not we would ever see them share the stage again. The Georgia-born four-piece originated in 1997 at the Savannah College of Art & Design, and quickly became one of the hottest rising acts in the Southeast. After original band members Joe Stickney and Brett Hinton left the band in 2001, current members Matt McDonald (keyboards) and Albert Suttle (drums) met founding members Brock Butler (guitar/vocals) and Adam Perry (bass) at an open-mic night in Savannah, GA and ultimately joined forces. The band soon relocated to the musically dominated town of Athens, GA, known for producing the likes of Widespread Panic and REM. Crowds continuously grew, bigger venues and promoters were calling, and PGroove undoubtedly became a household name in the world of improv/jam rock.
