GrooveSession is always a good time. This Southern California band brings a Movin’ Groovin’ high energy Rock Show with flavors of Jam Rock, Funk, Jazz, and Reggae. Distinctively one of today’s musical artists with a sound of their own, a fun message of hope and a simple vision of love for the world.
Led by singing drummer Manny Sanchez, along with his younger brother Ronnie Sanchez playing bass guitar and completing an unrivaled rhythm section. Natural harmonies in life as well as voice you can’t help but move once the GROOVE is in SESSION.
Brothers Sanchez have now connected with true talents and creative energies in Kyle Merrill on guitar and vocals and Alex Mello on keyboards. Kyle and Alex are respected musicians and road warriors from the band Brothers Gow. They now merge on the stage as Songwriters, Jammers, Rockers and Space Funkers United.
Big love, peace and vocal harmonies.

“The show was powerful, and it brought out all I love about live music . . . including, of course, lots of really groovy people.”
– Johnny Shows
“This is a ‘coming of age’ of a great band who have ‘earned their stripes’ the ol’ fashion way, touring and bringing their music and amazing talent to the people. Now, the new album by GrooveSession speaks the truth about love, life, and living the good times!”
– John Avila, Musician/Producer
