Georgia-based Jammers Perpetual Groove

Charleston City Paper | April 25, 2007
"I don’t exactly know how to put too fine a point on it," says Perpetual Groove guitarist Brock Butler, taking a break from a mid-day rehearsal at the Georgia Theatre in the band's current hometown of Athens, Ga.

"Ours is definitely very thick, rich sound ... it wraps around the eardrums like a warm blanket. Hopefully, it's never too harsh."

The Savannah-born quartet have stayed quite busy over the last two years, touring across the South and out West and back with a jazzy, funky, contemporary, electrified guitar-driven sound. P-Groove are currently one of the more ambitious improv-rock acts on the Southeastern circuit. Butler, keyboardist Matt "K-Car" McDonald, drummer Albert Suttle, and bassist Adam Perry toured North America heavily in support of the critically-acclaimed collection All This Everything.

They return to the road this week in support their new studio album, LiveLoveDie, co-produced by engineer Robert Hannon (Outkast). The disc was released on the Tree Leaf Music label, which branched off of the Tree Sound Studios facility in Atlanta. Check out for more.
