The Cardinal Groove

The Cardinal Groove is a great band that has been together for over a year. All suave, young professional musicians with plenty of experience they guarantee to set the right mood for any occasion.

The Cardinal Groove perform mostly old school R&B, Funk, Blues, Soul and Jazz taking a big influence from the Motown sound. The Cardinal Groove have chosen a fantastic selection of songs from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s and combined them with a keen sense of how to get the crowd on the floor. They guarantee to get you "up on offa that thang!".

The band usually perform as a seven piece band but if necessary can break it down to a four, five, or six piece and still sound great. Also, Vern (guitarist) and Zoe (singer) offer a duo with a more intimate set of songs.

The band members are - Zoe Mitsopoulos " unusually big soul voice for a white girl" Hillary Jorey-Hughes is our outspoken saxophonist and Kanako Sato provides killer chops on the keys. Jack Shanley is our king of raw bluesy horn lines. George Sheridan is the laid back bassist who never fails to keep the groove flowing with Will Smith (yes THE Will Smith) whose drumming is as tough as his attitude. Vernon Zamora is our guitar god who can shred like an animal but loves to funk it up for The Cardinal Groove.
