About

The New Groovement

since 2012
For the last decade The New Groovement has been the funk, hip-hop party machine of Victoria, BC. The 10-member band features a 4-piece horn section, congas, timbales, and enough guitar, bass and drums to get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor. While the original line-up has shifted and changed over the years, with current frontman and emcee Shane Blaq they are committed to 10 more years of funk. To quote Ed the Sock, “this band should be bigger than it is, not like in roster but in popularity.”

The New Groovement has made their mark on BC’s music scene, having been nominated for Urban Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, winning Album of the Year at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, and opening for acclaimed acts such as Booker T. Jones, Five Alarm Funk and Busty and the Bass. They are found regularly wowing crowds at the region’s biggest festivals, and touring Western Canada. They are played on CBC and were previously featured as the Zone @ 91.3 (Victoria) Band of the Month. The band released their first full-length studio album, The Orange Album, in 2015 and their Tired of Waiting EP in 2018. Their current single “The Wave” is available on all major music platforms, and more singles are on the way
