Groove Theory 5.12 with The Firm Handshake

Groove Theory Calgary is servin’ up a special funk edition of their weekly jam with blues-infused funk act The Firm Handshake.

Groove Theory Calgary is an open-ended, free form, perfectly imperfect, “do what u feel” jam session that welcomes groovy bands, singers, emcees, spoken word artists and musicians to create and collaborate, on the spot and right on the legendary #KingEddyYYC stage.

Check out who’s grooving with us this week:

The Firm Handshake
The Firm Handshake are an anomaly, they stick out – though not like the customary sore thumb, with all of its negative connotative baggage. They are more like the emergence of opposable thumbs onto the clawing paws of ancestral primates – they are mutants; they represent an evolutionary step forward. Yet in something of a paradoxical turn, their novelty is inexorably rooted in the past: what makes them seem fresh is their knowledge of traditions, a hard-earned knowledge garnered over the course of their 200-plus live performances and via their immersion, nay, apprenticeship in Calgary’s communal-cum-competitive blues scene.

JMaj7 Music:
