About This Event

Moe's Alley presents a massive funk dance party with Jive Machine and Smokey The Groove!

Saturday, May 25th
Doors: 8pm / Show: 9pm
$17 in advance / $22 day of the show

Jive Machine habitually bends the rules, blurs the lines, and stretches musical boundaries. Their music takes listeners on a sonic rollercoaster that fuses elements of old-school funk, progressive rock, blues, and soul. Throughout their set, you can hear diverse influences such as Tower Of Power, Jimi Hendrix and Trombone Shorty. Jive Machine is uniquely able to incorporate new ideas while paying homage to the great artists who came before them. The band is defined by a strong rhythmic foundation, infectious melodies, tasteful lead guitar virtuosity, and crisp horn lines.  Recently, Jive Machine has become notorious for their "pop-up" performances in downtown Santa Cruz. These events always erupt into a massive dance party, and within moments, you'll see It's impossible not to be captivated by the talent and contagious energy of their live shows! 


Get ready for Smokey The Groove Chico, California's premier 7 piece Dance-adelic/Jazz/Funk/Rage ensemble! Smokey The Groove brings galactic grooves, a full horn section, and that fat booty shakin bass to the dance floor for your party pleasure.  Each show is a journey through time, space, and the beyond. 

Join us for an evocative adventure through musical serenity, chaotic nastiestness, and the love of funk. It’s kinda like Primus and Parliament/Funkadelic had a baby, and then that baby met a baby made by Pink Floyd and Prince, and their super baby grew up to play some bangin 'tunes, that would be Smokey The Groove.
