The music was great and so was the environment. It's on 42nd street, but there were not many tourists that night. Though those tourists were having a blast as well

The music was soothing, from the motown era. audience participation was high/ Great, performers were also great and provided a variety of music from the motown sounds 1969 -1985. Father enjoyed it a great deal. Drinks were ok!

Description

Paying homage to the R&B, Motown and Soul legends, and founded solely on passion for the music, Groove Buffet formed in early 2005. The band is quickly on the rise and has become one of the best classic R&B/Motown Soul acts in the New York Tri-State area. Groove Buffet captures the true spirit of what the music was all about.

Their music creates an environment where fellowship can thrive, and people come out to each gig for that atmosphere. People want to get up and dance. Groove Buffet has gained praise from R&B, Classic Rock, Motown, and Soul fans alike.

Groove Buffet has an extensive song library from which it crafts each show’s set list, providing an entire night of material featuring the sounds of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, Otis Redding, James Brown, Wilson Pickett and many more artists.
