About The Band
was formed 5 years ago in Land O’ Lakes of the greater Tampa Bay area by Dave Kilmer and a group of talented musicians with a passion for classic rhythm and blues. With a diverse set list encompassing generations of popular music, the band has always had a focus on R&B, soul, funk, and anything with a groovy beat!
With nearly half a century of combined musical talent and experience, Gotta Groove is always jamming with ever-evolving brass and wind arrangements, improv instrumentals, killer funk solos, and an impressive vocal range from grungy blues to Prince and other ‘80s pop hits.
Their musical influences include: Tower Of Power, James Brown, Ray Charles, Delbert McClinton, Macio Parker, Santana, Norah Jones, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Quincy Jones, and more.
