Creating lively sounds that fuse various genres of music
In response to their highly successful and popular afternoon musical event in February, two great local musicians Jay Hoad and Chris Finnen are teaming together again to perform at The Groove Garden Café, Main Road at McLaren Vale on Sunday, 25th May from 2.00 pm.

For a great afternoon of musical entertainment and fun in a very relaxed family environment get along to The Groove Garden which is located alongside the former Congregational Church. Jay and Chris will perform a variety of music which blends soulful blues, African, rock, funk, reggae, Latin, island and Celtic music.
Last February, I was lucky enough to see them perform along with other local supporting blues musician, Stringybark McDowell and percussionist, Reno. All in all, they presented a colourful afternoon's entertainment of music and fun. Their music is bound to have your feet tapping and you up dancing; especially when Chris livens things up with his energising limbo rock segment.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere offers guest spots where other musicians may perform solo or will jam spontaneously with Jay and Chris and generate some memorable music and enjoyable entertainment.
