Group Nap at The East Room

Group Nap at The East Room

"The theme for the night is Jackets" declared the Funk/Jazz Jam trio called Group Nap.  Having told their fans this on social media leading up to the show, the band wore eighties style windbreakers to set the scene for a fun and quirky night of music.  Though Group Nap has had a line-up of up to ten players on stage, their current incarnation as a trio makes for an intimate and captivating performance to be in the audience for. 

As they performed, Nashville Offbeat took note of the jazzy, groovy, and at times ethereal and dissonant sounds coming from these awesome ladies on stage.  They drew us all in by placing keys over thick bass line grooves and driving drums.  Using a headset microphone, Emma- on bass and vocals- was able to walk around the stage creating the feeling that we were watching her perform the way she would at home.  To make the night even more fun the band was joined by an honorary and notable member of the entertainment industry who danced and swayed to the music behind them a few songs in.  Though she didn't employ traditional dance moves, Brenda really added to the Group Nap live experience.  

From start to finish, to the quirky and charming banter in between songs, this was a awesome band to see live.  Go follow Group Nap on Facebook and Instagram and make sure to check out their latest single called "Old Day's Dream!"
