Mission Accomplished
Rise and Shine by the Groove (So Cal) Review by Joe Garcia

From the opening guitar notes it sounds like it’s going to be a hard hitting rockin’ album. As soon as the bass and drums join in it confirms my suspicion! Opening track, 6 Turn Noose comes on hard and heavy reminiscent of Stevie Ray and Double Trouble. The guitar players, wait. Player? That’s right, singular. Mark Sepulveda is as good as a guitarist that I’ve heard in awhile and he works his magic throughout the album. So much sound coming from one man and his guitar. Actually so much sound coming from these three skilled musicians like the power trios before them; the James Gang, Rush, the Hendrix Trio and ZZ Top.

Good old fashioned, no nonsense rock and roll mixed in with a little blues. Janna Brunner on drums and Phil Savail on bass make up the trio along with Mark. Rise and Shine consist of all original tracks with the exception of track 6, The Beetles’-I’ve got a feeling (which they do very well and let their vocals Shine). Many of the songs are reminiscent to the classic rock vibe and great story telling. Each song is unique, maintaining the Groove’s exceptional musical execution and vocals. Janna and Phil demonstrate classic rock screams on I’ve got a Feeling (Phil) and 6 Turn Noose (Janna) a trait that separated rock stars from vocalists in decades past. The Rise of each artist is complimentary to the others and each artist’s skills are nicely showcased on this album.

Sunrise is a hard charging song that makes you do whatever you were doing, faster. The booming bass and rapid drumming cannot be denied. Highway 1 slows the pace and vibe a bit with this cool little track. Mark’s guitar work is outstanding. You Do Something to Me captures the Groove’s essence perfectly. Crazy Janie is a bluesy ballad that starts and ends with sounds that just may be unidentifiable to some (spoiler alert-it’s a vinyl record). The many dimensions to this song make it a strong cut on this album. My only gripe is that the final track, Wind Through the Trees, could be a couple minutes longer. It’s a beautiful, mostly instrumental, song that leaves one longing for more, maybe that was the intention.

Through and through the Groove delivers on this debut album. Start to finish worth listening to over and over. Fine musicians clearly working well together with each artist knowing when to Rise and Shine.
