Blue Groove

Blue Groove is a bluegrass band that hails from Minneapolis/St Paul, and was awarded "First Runner Up" at the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association's (MBOTMA) Race for a Place contest in November, 2015. The band covers material from a number of past and current bluegrass artists, and presents a few originals as well. The Blue Groove sound leans towards a more contemporary vibe (Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent), while maintaining ties to traditional bluegrass (Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs) and all of its drive, improvisation and harmony singing!

The band is composed of experienced veteran players and singers, as well as some new faces in the local bluegrass scene. The band members are Adelle Hyrkas, lead vocals and rhythm guitar; Brent Fuqua, mandolin and lead vocal; David Smith, banjo and vocal harmony; Bob Doe, lead guitar, dobro, and vocals; and Joe Meyer, upright bass fiddle.
