The seven singers of Groove For Thought have been blowing audiences away for over ten years. Performing classic tunes in a jazz style unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Together since 2000, Groove for Thought began as a group of friends that got together weekly in their living rooms to sing a style of music that went above and beyond what was possible in their college jazz choirs. Many of the members of Groove are experienced music teachers, and all members have ties to the rich jazz education tradition of the Pacific Northwest.

Awards and accolades have been coming Groove’s way since they first began performing in public. Most notably, they are winners of the 2005 National Harmony Sweepstakes Competition, and the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for “Best Jazz Song” in 2006 and 2012 and “Best Holiday Song” in 2011. Additionally, Groove was selected “Favorite Jazz Group” in the 2011 A Cappella Community Awards.

In 2010, Groove for Thought was selected as one of ten vocal groups from around the United States to appear on the second season of NBC’s highly rated vocal competition show The Sing-Off.
