Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers — You Gotta Have A Groove

Mar 11, 2017

“You gotta have a groove.”  That’s where everything starts with the music of saxophonist/vocalist Mindi Abair and her accomplices, the Boneshakers, led by guitarist/vocalist Randy Jacobs.  Give these players a good groove and they’re gone. 

And after all their years of performing, they know a good’un when they hear it.  The Boneshakers go all the way back to the 1980s when Jacobs and vocalist, Sweet Pea Atkinson formed the nucleus for the band, Was/Not Was. 

Meanwhile, over the past couple of decades, Mindi’s been racking up Grammy nominations and hit after hit on the contemporary jazz charts .  When she and the Boneshakers met, the chemistry was instant and undeniable.  And they’ve been hitting that groove ever since.
