Addison Groove Project Return with New Songs, Special Guests
Addison Groove Project headlined New York’s Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night. Though the band has played a few gigs since reuniting last year, the show marked the band’s first New York appearance since 2007. New England bassist Aaron Bellamy, known for his work with Sam Kininger Band, played with the band throughout their entire performance. (Bellamy has helped out AGP during most of their reunion shows.) In addition, Trey Anastasio Band horn players Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman sat in with the group throughout the second half of their show. Hartswick also provided vocals on a cover of Heart’s “Magic Man,” a song she played with AGP at Higher Ground during a classic performance.
AGP also surprised many fans by debuting three songs. During their first set, AGP saxophonist Dave Adams offered his new number “Meteroite.” Later in the night, AGP also introduced covers of Italian producer—and Daft Punk collaborator—Giorgio Moroder’s “Tears” and Chic’s “I Want Your Love.” AGP’s signature cover of The Mohawks’ “Beat Me ‘Til I’m Blue” brought the evening to a close.
The group’s reunion run continues with a show at Boston, MA’s Paradise tomorrow. Click here for a photo gallery from Saturday’s performance.
