Summer Roof Stage Series ft. Boukou Groove
Sunday, August 13
4607 Legendary Marina Drive
With the lively international release of their debut LP “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup” and the ability to maintain a dynamic tour schedule, Boukou Groove provides audiences with a genre-bending collective, touching on elements of New Orleans style Funk, R&B, Soul and Blues.
Founded on the stage at Tipitinas in New Orleans in 2010, Boukou Groove is the brainchild of singer/producer Donnie Sundal and New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. Sundal, sharing stages and recording with the likes of Sam Bush and Junior Marvin of The Wailers, creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm as he showcases his multi-octave ranging vocals while sustaining his brand of lavish Moog bass lines. Big D (Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentleman, Bonnie Raitt and Rockin’ Dopsie) provides his smooth and funky guitar licks largely based on improvisation and feel alone. Together, no matter what the venue, the band provides their distinguishing style and creates a kinetic environment that’s easily spread throughout the audience.
As they continue to refine their unique style and build upon the momentum of the release of “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup,” 2014 promises to be an unprecedented year for the band as they continue to add dates at venues and festivals throughout the globe.
