The band returns to Boulder
The band Perpetual Groove is always welcome in Boulder.
On Thursday, Fox Theatre was packed. The opening band was Delta Nove and their band has a great sound and really got the crowd in the mood for dancing before P Groove even came out. The band has been coming to Boulder for a while now and many people in the crowd were repeat patrons.
Then P Groove came out to the stage and people danced and flowed to the two-hour performance.
One spectator, senior finance major Joe Garan, came to the previous year’s show.
“There is about the same size crowd as last year but this year there are less lights on stage,” Garan said.
He described the band as a “jamtronic quartet,” referring to their electronic jam band style that makes them unique.
The unique voice of singer Brock Butler and the music creativity add to the interesting sound the band has achieved through just four band members.
“It’s like they create their own mood,” said Brittany Fradet, a freshman psychology major.
Garan also commented on how “their lyrics make you think.”
The set up at first needed to be tweaked as the drums were soft on the opening song but they were turned up.
“They should turn up the guitar, it needs to be louder and the lights aren’t as cool this year,” said Aaron Klipstein, a senior management major.
The lights were deceptively tame for a jam band show but the music was beyond expectations, and while not impressed with the lights, Klipstein said he agreed.
“The band’s timing is on and the harmonics are stellar,” Klipstein said.
