"Ju-Groovin" was started by Neil Citron as a fun "jam" project for playing some of the great old R&B and Funk songs, we all grew up loving over the years.
We will be inviting various friends to play, record and contribute their talents and incredible love for this classic Genre of music and these amazing songs.
The project begins with the classic 1960 instrumental track "Shag Time" (Twine Time), originally recorded by Alvin Cash and The Crawlers. Joining Neil (guitars, vocals, keys) on this first song are Jon Pomplin on bass and Joshua Seth Eagan on drums.
The second track "Do Your Thing", a track by originally written and recorded by Issac Hayes. Along with Neil on vocals guitars and keyboards are Tony Franklin on bass and Rodger Carter on drums.
The third single "Ain't Nobody" is a cover of the R&B classic from Chaka Khan and Rufus featuring newcomer Wes Allen on vocals, Neil Citron, Jon Pomplin and Rodger Carter.
We hope you enjoy moving and grooving to this immortal music as much as we do. Groove On!!
