One of the tightest, slickest, technically brilliant and god damn grooviest bands we’ve ever seen, strap in for this one !

 

 

TC & The Groove Family are a 10-piece collective whose music celebrates the coming together of cultures, and the unity that music can provide for everyone. They explore grooves and genres from the UK and around the world, including afrobeat, breakbeat, jungle, jazz and highlife.

Having gained a reputation in Leeds for a raucous live show bursting with raw energy, the band have played alongside afro-fusion legends K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade and London jazzers Pyjaen and Cykada at shows in Sheffield, Bristol and London. In 2021, the band performed as part of We Out Here’s online festival showcase, before blowing the roof off of the Chai Wallah stage at Shambino in August.

Singles ‘Let’s Start’ and ‘Temple’ received airplay from BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, Craig Charles and Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6, plus Colin Curtis on Worldwide FM. Having spent successive lockdowns writing new music, the band headed into the studio in the summer to record their debut album with Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist, ONIPA). Big things to come in 2022!

Sam, Tom and Mark formed TST (The Saturday Thing) in 2009 as a platform for their DJ nights in and around Guildford and Sam & Mark founded Staycation Live Festival shortly after, with Tom joining them early on. You can catch Redeye Allen, Sam Able and Levski playing a plethora of styles at the opening party in the Cloister, on the Friday night.
