Inspired by many music genres, 100 Proof Band brings an array of local musicians that collectively blend a broad range of music to produce one sound. Funk, R&B, Jazz, Neo Soul combined with the soulful sound of the latin conga brings out a form of DC GoGo that's sure to capture your music pleasure. With a high octane pace and nonstop music sets, 100 Proof Band satisfies the musical and dancing desires of it's fans.

Formed in the late Fall of 1987 as a student-run pep band for the Charlottesville High School Basketball Team, Ebony Groove has been performing its own distinct blend of D.C. Go-Go, R&B, Jazz and Hip Hop for enthusiastic audiences all over Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic Region. 

Comprised of founding members: drummer - Raymond Brooks, percussionists - Kyle Reaves, Curtis Kenney and Larry Johnson, keyboardist - Chris Redd, saxophone/vocals - Ivan Orr and vocalist - Jesse Turner, an Ebony Groove show is a high energy call and response musical dialogue. Longtime Charlottesville music scene fixture Vic Brown often joins the band on bass and Richmond based vocalists Daphne Brown and Xavier Shannon add their melodious harmonies to the mix.
