Addison Grove Project w/ Potbelly
AGP (Addison Groove Project) is a psychedelic funk band out of Boston, MA active from the late 90′s to mid-00′s.
A onetime Jambands.com New Groove of the Month, AGP formed at Wellesley High School in 1997. The group toured on the weekends and summers through May of 2003, while the members of the band attended various colleges throughout the Northeast. In 2004, the band lost bassist John Hall—whose father Rev. Addison Hall inspired the group’s name—to cancer.
After touring nationally and making appearances at festivals including Bonnaroo, AGP played their last show at the Paradise Rock Club on March 3, 2007. Since that time lead singer/guitarist Brendan McGinn has pursued a medical degree while keyboardist Rob Marscher performed as part of Matisyahu’s band. The reunion shows will feature longtime members McGinn, Marshcer, Dave Adams (alto sax), Ben Groppe (tenor sax) and Andrew Keith (drums).
Rooted in Burlington, Vermont’s rich local music scene, Potbelly was able to find their identity primarily on the stage at the famous music club Nectar’s. It was there that the 5 young musicians found their stage presence and grew as performers. Their music has evolved tremendously over the past four years, and shows no signs of letting up. Potbelly has had the honor of playing alongside some o…f their biggest influences including: Snarky Puppy, The Roots, Galactic, Alan Evans, Perpetual Groove, and many other great local artists. There are no gimmicks or flashy distractions, just 5 budding musicians who love what they do and can THROW DOWN! So if you like funky music and dancing all night, come see us sometime. We’d love to play for you.
