Zealous Grooves, a local Albuquerque based band, plays a wide variety of genres from Funk to Rock n Roll. Sharing the stage with many great acts such as The Strange, Al-Stoch-O’Rama, State of the Mingo, Radio la Chusma, Crazy Fool, Gary Blackchild, Lindy Vision, and many more, this band has the potential to rock the house. Founded by front man and primary songwriter Shanahan in 2008, Zealous Grooves displays a fervor for the stage where they express the passion and love of the music they play. With Shanahan deriving from Native American roots you can expect unique undertones of Southwest influences within the music. Everything from Funk, Latin, Blues, Rock, Folk and a touch of Bluegrass can be found in the sounds and songs that Zealous creates. Currently, Zealous Grooves is in the process of writing, performing, and recording their new material around the local music scene. Working with Shanahan is a young, talented drummer, Kent Sidlow (Sid), and bassist Miles Ironwood, together they are the essence of what Zealous Grooves should sound like, full of zeal and groovy as any band today. Though Kent is young his knowledge of music and the drums is one of a veteran time keeper, sure to get some feet tapping and miles can rock the bass or turn to some keys and then display his talents behind the turntables. Be sure to keep a lookout for the amazing, eclectic sounds of Zealous Grooves.
