Grooveology is the creation of Dave Matsen and Dave Smith; two skilled horn players who set out to play groove-oriented (be it R&B, Jazz or Rock flavored) music with a jamming rhythm section. It looks like they succeeded.
Performing original instrumental tunes inspired by Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Yellowjackets and The Crusaders along with unique arrangements, this band packs a pretty powerful punch. The rhythm section is comprised of some of the most respected musicians in the Midwest. As an added bonus, the smooth vocalist, Marcía is added to the mix and is a crowd favorite.

Over the last two years the band has had great success performing at
premiere events such as Milwaukee's Summerfest,
Jazz in the Park, Rainbow Summer, 3rd Ward's Summer Sizzle,
Milwaukee Art Museum's First Friday. Groovelology's six song EP has received generous airplay on Smooth Jazz WJZI.

"I've had the distinct pleasure of seeing and working with Grooveology in the past year and I can honesty say thay are one of the very best bands in the Midwest. These seasoned jazz cats are top notch players and their live show will mesmerize you."
-Steve Scott, Music Director - WJZI

"Grooveology rocked the crowd [at Summerfest]"
-Lori Price, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
