Born in Hagerstown, Maryland, Groove began his ascent toward musical notoriety and Internet stardom in second grade, when he started playing piano, taking his mother's lead - she taught the children's choir. "I always knew I wanted to play music. I started playing sax when I was nine or ten years old and
immediately took a liking to it," Groove affirms.
Although Euge Groove listened to everything from urban to pop to big band and country, his playing didn't reflect this cornucopia of sounds: "My teacher was strictly classical. I had played nothing but classical concertos and sonatas, either transcribed for sax or written for sax. I worshipped Marcel Mule, the French classical saxophonist--he was absolutely brilliant. He made the sax sound like a cello.”
There is a LOT More...so please join us!!
