Modern Groove Syndicate by Modern Groove Syndicate

Modern Groove Syndicate, a Richmond, Va.-based quintet, shares a bit of its unusual sound in the form of a six-track self-titled album.

Joel DeNunzio, Todd Herrington, Daniel Clark, Frank Johnson and J.C. Kuhl create a blend of funk, jazz, Latin, soul and hip-hop "guaranteed to make your head spin, soul stir and butt shake." Some examples include "Chewing the Fat" and "Back in the Kitchen." All tracks reflect the enthusiasm and talent of the musicians.

Kuhl comes to Modern Groove Syndicate from Agents of Good Roots; Herrington and DeNunzio are both members of Buzby; Clarke plays in numerous groups including Among Friends and The Devil's Workshop.

Performing regularly every Tuesday at Cary Street Cafe in Richmond, listeners can hear elements of the sounds of P-Funk, John Cage, the Brecker Brothers, the Crusaders and other artists. If you like this type of music, Modern Groove Syndicate would be the group to consider.
