About Outfit Groove
Outfit Groove is a professional Gloucestershire based jazz quartet who have enjoyed performing at local venues, festivals and formal events since their formation in 2011.
They primarily play Jazz, Blues, Swing, Bebop, Hard-Bop, Latin, Bossa-Nova, Funk, groove-based music and have recently included more original repertoire too. The band also takes a lot of pride in choosing a diverse range of music from reputed composers from Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Gershwin, Dizzy Gillespie, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Thelonius Monk, Woody Shaw, Horace Silver and many more of the Great American Songbook composers.
The band members are all well seasoned musicians who collectively share a wealth of experience as jazz performers across the multiple ensembles they have been part of and currently play in too. Their Roses Theatre debut will of course feature their very best selection of repertoire, arrangements and compositions.

Music in Eric's Bar
Our doors will be open from 7pm, so please arrive in good time to find a seat, relax and let us pour you a drink. The bar itself will not be serving during the performance, as we give our full attention to the musicians, but it will open at all other times, including the interval.
