Mallorcas greatest Soul, Funk & Jazz-Party

Welcome to the MALLORCA SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL on May 3-5, 2013 – the only smooth jazz festival in the European Mediterranean area. Actually, in Sa Coma, on the beautiful east coast of the Spanish island Mallorca.

A music festival with unique live music in the exclusive ambience of the Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa. The 5-star hotel is also the venue and is characterized by an elegant and modern equipment, a full-equipped spa area as well as landscaped gardens and swimming pools (indoor / outdoor). Located only 300 metres from the beach, right on the Punta de n’Amer natural park.

This musical (short) vacation* is all about enjoying the finer things in life. Good music. Good food. Good wine. Good entertainment. Good weather. Good prospects for recovery and a unique experience in the breathtaking scenery of the Mediterranean Sea.

At the concerts on Friday and Saturday evening we welcome some of the biggest and most successful international stars of the Contemporary and Smooth Jazz scene. On Sunday forenoon the festival celebrates its musical finale.

Here you can order your exclusive Hotel Package (Hotel & Concert tickets).

HUGE GROOVE…Not Really…better yet, it’s Euge Groove…a pseudonym for saxophone journeyman Steve Grove. The saxman fantastic started his career at the University of Miami’s School of Music, where he became interested in Jazz. Once he moved to LA and joined Tower of Power, he was off and running on his long and storied career, although still known as Steve Grove, not Euge Groove. His session and back-up work included such mega stars as Joe Cocker, Eurythmics, The Gap Band, Huey Lewis & The News, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville and Richard Marx.

It wasn’t until the end of the 90’s that Grove developed the “Euge Groove” persona and landed with Warner Bros. Records and debuted in 2000 as the “Euge Groove” we know today. After touring with Tina Turner’s Band he started his solo career in 2002. “Livin Large”, a 70’s pop-soul vibe, catapulted his career and was followed by “Just Feels Right” in 2005. Looking for more a “Gospel” approach, he released “Born To Groove” in 2007 followed by Sunday morning in 2009 and “Seven Large” in 2011.

Always a fan favorite, Euge has visited the Capitol City frequently over the past 7 years delighting loyal followers and calls Sacramento one of his most anticipated yearly stops. We’re happy to bring Euge Groove to the Three Stages at Folsom College venue for a crazy walk on the wild side!
