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…

Anders Osborne Spacedust and Oceans Views CD
Share this:

During the past half-dozen years, Anders Osborne released several albums for the Chicago-based Alligator label that were centered on heavy blues riffs, overdriven guitar, and lyrics of cathartic relief. Within these terrific records, as well, was some lighter fare in a vein that often recalled the era of ‘70s California singer-songwriter. On Spacedust & Ocean Views, distributed independently on his Back On Dumain Records imprint, Osborne has made an even more discernible stride in that lighter, quieter direction, rooted this time not in West Coast vibrations, but in his adopted hometown of New Orleans.

Jimi Hendrix Experience Electric Church Atlanta Pop Festival (DVD)
Share this:

This special DVD presentation of Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church presents the legendary guitarist in full flight at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival before the largest US audience of his career.

This critically acclaimed film combines color, 16mm multi-camera footage of Hendrix’s unforgettable July 4, 1970 concert in its original performance sequence together with a new documentary that traces his journey to the festival amidst the dark shadow of civil rights unrest, the unrelenting toll of the Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young people across the country who were inspired by the Woodstock festival.

The film details Hendrix’s integral role in drawing nearly 500,000 people to his Electric Church- a dusty, scorching hot pecan orchard in Byron, Georgia some 100 miles south of Atlanta. Together with Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox, Jimi skillfully blended favorites such as “Purple Haze,” “All Along The Watchtower,” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” with confident renditions of new songs such as “Freedom” and “Straight Ahead” that had not yet been released on album. As a colorful fireworks display stretched overhead across the night sky, Jimi performed the “Star Spangled Banner” to the wild delight of the massive audience.

The performance footage of the Experience has been carefully restored from the original negative in high definition. The audio soundtrack includes stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes by Eddie Kramer directly from the original master tapes.

This expanded DVD features three songs not seen in the television broadcast. This includes, “Red House,” “Freedom” and a special presentation of “Room Full Of Mirrors” that features all of the existing performance footage combined with never before seen photographs of the Atlanta performance.

Thor Bendickson

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.
