P Groove’s Last Stops Before Hiatus
For ten years Perpetual Groove has toured the country and the world playing for fans their signature style of blissful and beautifully constructed melodies which build into climactic peaks. After a decade of touring and four albums to be proud of the band will officially call it quits on April 6, 2013 due to the health concerns of founding member Brock Butler. The other three members of the band will continue to collaborate together under the name Ghost Owl. While a reunion has not been ruled out, no firm time frame will be set for Butlers return. But before the hiatus takes effect the band had embarked on a series of appearances including a number of shows leading up to a two set performance at AURA Music & Arts Festival and a number of shows after the festival.
Unfortunately the hiatus has not come soon enough: all of their shows until January 30th have been canceled do to continuing health issues. While no one is happy to miss their last chance (for now) to see the band, the health of its members is understandably a priority. Don’t fret: if you had tickets to one of the canceled shows you will receive a refund and if you were planning on attending you still have a good number of chances to see them. Other then their highly anticipated appearance at AURA their are still dates left on the tour for you to say goodbye. A two night run at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, followed by a few additional shows in the south and then back home to Athens, Georgia for a what promises to be an emotional last show at the Georgia Theater for their hometown crowd. While it is sad to see this staple of the jam scene bow out, it’s comforting to know they recognize when they need a break. No fault can be placed for keeping ones self in good health and the band is sure to get a heartfelt farewell at each show they play.
