& New Year’s Allstar Jam-Session on Dec 31, 2016 at midnight

Saxophonist, composer and producer Steven Eugene Grove began playing piano in the second grade and turned to the saxophone at the age of nine or ten. His teacher gave him a classical education on the instrument, which he followed at the University of Miami’s School of Music, where he became interested in jazz. Upon graduation, he initially remained in Miami doing sessions and playing in bands such as Expose. He then moved to Los Angeles and joined Tower of Power, remaining with the group about four years. Following this experience, he freelanced, doing sessions and working in backup bands, his clients including Joe Cocker, Eurythmics, The Gap Band, Huey Lewis & the News, Elton John, Eros Ramazotti, and Richard Marx. At the end of the ’90s, Grove developed the persona of “Euge Groove”, a corruption of his real name, and recorded a demo that soon landed him with Warner Bros. Records. Euge Groove, his debut album, was released in May 2000. At the time, the saxophonist toured in Tina Turner’s backup band. Several CDs with different labels followed. His latest CD “Still Euge” was released this year. The name of his 10th solo project sums up his feelings while making it. “First ‘Still’ represents me being able to be me! What I was going for on the album is exactly what I was going for 16 years ago when Euge Groove came out. It’s smooth jazz and I’m proud to call it that. Second, ‘Still’, from Psalm 46:10, perfectly describes who I am these days … I know how blessed I am on so many levels. I am truly ‘Still’ Euge.”

Another year is coming to an end. Do you also feel like celebrating the old and the new properly? For our part: We are absolutely in the mood for a big event! That’s the reason why, for the second time, we are presenting our four days Soul-, Funk- and Jazz Party around New Year’s Eve. With the SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGSBURG we bring as usual absolute top names, as well as outstanding young guns of the international Smooth Jazz Scene to Augsburg. Three festival evenings we celebrate in the stunning and evocative atmosphere of the Parktheater at Kurhaus Göggingen. The program includes two live concerts and an after-show party per day – on Thursday Shakatak and Jeannette Harris as well as on Friday Brian Bromberg and Oli Silk & JJ Sansaverino. The fantastic highlight at the Parktheater is the big New Year’s Eve: Euge Groove’s show is followed by a year-end countdown on stage and subsequent Allstar Jam.

Our partner location this year is again the “Dorint Hotel” at Wittelsbacher Park, which provides shuttle busses to the Parktheater on all festival evenings. The hotel itself does not only host the New Year’s Concert feat. singer Lindsey Webster and saxophonist Elan Trotman, which ends the festival smoothly, but also the gala dinner before the New Year’s Eve show. Together with the Dorint Team we have newly conceived the dinner. Be surprised!
The official sale for festival packages starts on September 1, 2016 in our online-shop: www.smoothjazzshop.eu/augsburg
