GROOVESESSION is a power rock trio best known for definitive song writing and explosive live performances. Their sound is steeped in old school funk and irresistible soul, while bridging the ideals of classic and cutting-edge jam-rock. The positive energy of this barefoot band is infectious as they play each show like it could be their last.
Driven by the brotherly bond of bassist Ronnie Sanchez and drummer/lead vocalist Manny Sanchez, primal rhythmic force is the backbone of this trio. Guitarist Sarven Manguiat slices through the thunder with licks both tasteful and innovative. From hair-raising, turbo-charged, electric propulsions to acoustic gems with three-part harmonies, their songs transmit elements of magic, emotional gravity and an undeniable call to the dance floor.
Based in Ontario, CA, Groove Session has over 950 performances under its belt. In addition to captivating crowds at their own shows, they are highly sought-after collaborators, having played with many of today's greatest bands and musicians. From nights with Leo Nocentelli or Robert Walter in California to Pat MacDonald, Wally Ingram, and Chris Aaron in Wisconsin, Tony Brown and Kim Manning in Iowa, or Walter Salas-Humara at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, these guys leave a deep impression wherever they go.
Groove Session has also been honored to open for living legends like The Funky Meters, George Clinton’s P-Funk All-Stars, Little Feat, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, 7 Walkers, Greg Adams, Tea Leaf Green, The Radiators, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, New Mastersounds, Railroad Earth, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Ozomatli and many more.
Groove Session is currently blazing a trail into new frontiers around the country and winning devoted fans with a combo of their soul-quenching, funkified rock and lovable personalities.

But there's no substitute for catching a session LIVE. If you don't know yet, be assured, Groove Session is your friend.

Shaky Feelin
Ventura, California is home to this powerhouse of a quintet, noticeable for their groove-based double drum sound and shredding guitar solos, memorable for catchy songs and the fun had dancing the night away at a Shaky Feelin’ show. A high energy jam band mixing the elements of rock, reggae, bluegrass and funk to create one of the most memorable live shows you’ll ever see! They draw inspiration from bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, Sublime, the Disco Biscuits, and The Beatles, then deliver an evening of music that can only be described as the Shaky Feelin’ sound. The group consists of Mark Masson (guitar & vocals), Jeff Hiller (bass guitar), Paul Menchaca (drums & vocals), Cameron Probe (drums & percussion) and Franklin Murphy (keys & vocals). The creativity of the band allows for amazing song writing with a “let’s never play it the same way twice” attitude. With no fear of improvisational experimentation on stage, true communication, and strong musicianship this band has the ability to create powerful music that leaves a lasting impression. Shaky Feelin’ shows are a positive high-energy journey that quickly gets people to their feet, and leaves everyone filled with music, joy, and that… Shaky Feelin’!
