In The Groove features the best of what’s happening in the live music scene right now.  The music we play is centered around artists that make their living playing live, sometimes hundreds of days a year, and is characterized by quality musicianship and fascinating improvisation.   Sometimes labIn The Groove Oval Logoeled jamband music, it spans all genres including rock, blues, funk, bluegrass, world beat and jazz.

This show first aired on WMNF in 2007.  At that time, Jake Clemens & Thor shared the programming. After about a year, Jake moved to Ohio where he still spins.  Soon after Eric Hestbeck and Wayne Tagle got involved, volunteering to help answer phones and share their experiences.  Wayne and Thor have been sharing programming responsibilities for the past few years, and have definitely gotten into a groove.

We continue to air the best of the local, regional and national live music scene, and love to feature artists playing in the WMNF Live Music Studio.  Artists that we have had in the studio or talked to on the phone over the years include String Cheese Incident, Railroad Earth, Tea Leaf Green, Perpetual Groove, The Heavy Pets, Cope, Toubab Krewe, Bogus Pomp, Uncle John’s Band, Bela Fleck, and many more.
Please tune in on Tuesday nights and get turned on to something new to get you In The Groove…

Umphrey’s McGee is an American jam band originally from South Bend, Indiana. Although the band is part of the jam band scene, like Phish and the Grateful Dead (with ever-changing setlists, improvisation, two sets per night, open taping policy, etc.), they are much more influenced musically by progressive rock artists such as King CrimsonYesPink FloydFrank ZappaThe Mahavishnu Orchestra, and early Genesis, as well as heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden and Van Halen. The band also identifies The PoliceThe Beatles, and Led Zeppelin as primary influences.[1] UM experiments with many musical styles, including rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, electronic, bluegrass, and folk.

Jim James “Eternally Even”
Share this:

Jim James’ new solo album contains some of his most psychedelic music, as well as his most directly topical lyrics, offering new ways for him to wield his otherworldly voice.

Eternally Even, logically enough, is more of a companion to James’ last solo LP than it is to My Morning Jacket’s stunning 2015 release The Waterfall, particularly in its deeper indulgence of James’ soul influences. But it takes those soul elements and submerges them in psychedelic textures, making for a head trip of an album. Regions was a strong record in its own right but felt less like a statement than a collection of songs—which, with material dating over the course of a few years, it sort of was. But Eternally Even sounds as if it was sequenced as one piece that requires front-to-back listening.

WMNF’s First Annual Alt-Country Hoedown – February 25 – Skipper’s (Will Call)

A pair of tickets to WMNF’s First Annual Alt-Country Hoedown – Saturday, February 25 @ 6:00 P.M. – Skipper’s Smokehouse (Will Call)

Elizabeth Cook  –  The youngest of 11, Cook was born in Wildwood, Florida and her parents were musicians who played string instruments.  Her father honed his skills playing upright bass in the prison band while serving time for running moonshine.  After her father was released, he and his wife began playing in local country bands together. Elizabeth was on stage with them at age four, singing such inappropriate songs as ‘I’m Having Daydreams About Night Things’   At the age of nine, she had her own band. She started recording her own music in 2002 and has achieved a reputation as a deeply independent artist exploring the dark edges of country music.  Cook hosts the radio show “Elizabeth Cook’s Apron Strings” on the Sirius XM station Outlaw Country.

“As if she’s emerged from a dark night of the soul and felt the need to push against the limits of her expression.” – NPR.

Dale Watson – the tattoed, stubbornly independent outsider who insists on making authentic country music.   Dubbed “the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hell raiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Watson is a veteran touring artist and consummate entertainer who is on the road more than 300 days a year.  An outspoken proponent of classic honky-tonk for over two decades, Watson has christened his brand of American roots music “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from the current crop of Nashville-based pop country. In 2014, he founded the Ameripolitan Awards in Austin each February to recognize the best in Honky-tonk, Outlaw Country, Rockabilly and Texas Swing music.

Eilen Jewell Band  – the long time WMNF favorite whose music is perfectly situated at the crossroads between folk, country and rock.   “Tantalizing… Wonderful voice… this slightly restrained, beautifully crafted and enticing Eilen Jewell disc proves she remains one of American’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices.” – American Songwriter, Hal Horowitz   “She’s got a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface.” –  NPR Song of the Day

The Whiskey Gentry  –  young band from  Atlanta marries old country and new grit. From Paste magazine:

The Whiskey Gentry is a toe-tapping, steamrolling kind of band, its fingers picking deep into fields of bluegrass, feet stomping in line with a punk-inspired kick drum. On its self-titled debut EP, the band effortlessly marry old country and new grit, and carrying you along into the Appalachians with the pull of a landslide. “We aren’t reinventing the wheel,” says guitarist Jason Morrow. “We’re just painting it.”

Sara Rose Band  – female-fronted classic country, The Sara Rose Band specializes in pre-1980 country & Western music made famous by stars the likes of Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and George Jones along with the occasional stylistic curveball such as a Dusty Springfield medley.

Los Lonely Boys- Capitol Theatre – March 28, 2017 8PM (Hard Tickets)

A pair of hard tickets for Los Lonely Boys, Capitol Theatre, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 – 8PM

GRAMMY® Award-winning band Los Lonely Boys are hitting the road! The band’s latest release, Revelation is a landmark release for the siblings, JoJo Garza (bassist/vocalist), Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ring (drums, vocals). While maintaining the infectiously melodic mix of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and rootsy brown-eyed soul that’s long endeared Los Lonely Boys to its fiercely loyal fan base, Revelation adds an expansive range of new sonic elements, e.g. the conjunto touches of Blame It On Love, the reggae groove of Give A Little More, the rustic acoustic textures of It’s Just My Heart Talkin’ and the baroque pop elements of There’s Always Tomorrow.

In 2004, Los Lonely Boys exploded on the music scene with the hit single Heaven, which became a Top 20 pop hit and reached #1 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart and eventually won a GRAMMY® Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

Thor Bendickson  inthegroove88.5@verizon.net

I got turned on to this scene in the early 90's as I was exploring all different kinds of music, mostly inspired by what I heard on to by WMNF. I have been an avid listener supporter of the station for over 25 years, and got my start by guest hosting on The Freak Show and The Sixties Show.
