Upstairs Lounge brings back the funk

Funk returns to the Upstairs Lounge when Groove Kitchen makes its second appearance

Groove Kitchen performs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 13 at Oak Bay Recreation’s Upstairs Lounge, 1975 Bee St.

Funk returns to the Upstairs Lounge when Groove Kitchen makes its second appearance.

Oak Bay Tea Party 2014 headliners debuted at the rec centre space in October, offering their brand of soul from James Brown and the Neville Brothers to Bruno Mars and Nelly.

“I think the venue is a real discovery – a hidden gem,” said keyboardist Adrian Chamberlain, of the band’s inaugural performance at Upstairs Lounge. “It’s intimate, yet a good size. There’s a fireplace, grill and a bar. What more could you want?”

The Victoria-based band also features David Anderson on guitar and vocals, Pedro Arbour on drums,  Steve Moyer on bass and Eric Hughes on saxophone.

Get a taste of the band at groovekitchen.weebly.com.

Groove Kitchen performs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 13 at Oak Bay Recreation’s Upstairs Lounge, 1975 Bee St. Tickets are $12 in advance at Ivy’s Bookshop and Oak Bay Recreation or at beaconridgeproductions.com online. Tickets are $15 at the door.
