Brainchild of local party starter Omar Sultani, these intimate events are effectively an organic progression of the all-welcoming house parties he’s been known to host for those closest to him. With The Groove, these feelings have been captured and packaged up into an evening affair for all to enjoy, all night long – and who wouldn’t want to join?
‘The rhythmic allure that pulls you in, moves your feet and puts a smile on your face every single time.
The instinctive feeling that brings people together and ignores social boundaries.
It was here before us, and it will go on long after us…
Preferring not to put a name to the style of music played, we can assure you that our music is about diversity which feels soulful, upbeat and with a lot of love.
Raid your wardrobe and bring your most colourful garms…’
Starting life at The Lacehouse in 2015, then The Lofthouse in later years, (with the odd rooftop afterparty thrown in for good measure), this phoenix rises from the ashes at Jam Cafe this Friday 23rd February.
The name and psychedelic flyers (created by artist, Lily Wales) reflect the atmosphere whipped up by Omar at his nights – a funk-filled, disco dancing affair with smiles as its ultimate goal.
Once more, we’ve let the music do the talking for those new to the night.
Here are Omar’s top tracks that epitomise The Groove:
Bileo – You Can Win
The Blade Family – Sweet Dream
Teaspoon & the Waves – Oh Yeh Soweto
Rare Pleasure – Let Me Down Easy
Glenn Underground – Shiloh(A King’s Return)
The Groove comes to Jam Cafe this Friday 23rd February. Learn more about the event online.
