Russian Mob

The Groove Time, based in Bratislava, Slovakia, is one of the country’s leading blues bands. It features some of the finest working musicians in the region. Having started as a jump blues band, it slowly developed a character of its own. The core of the band’s repertoire is now comprised of the original tunes either from the last CD Novelty Shop or the new material. While still rooted in blues the songs are a gumbo cooked with ingredients from all kinds of genres like jazz, groove, latino, rock and keeping the music fresh. The latest album Spin-Off explores the area of funk, soul, and groove. The line-up has Juraj Schweigert on harmonica/vocals, Zsolt Szitási on guitar, Matej Štubniak on bass, and Juraj Raši on drums.
The band’s highlights include European Blues Challenge participation in 2016, Bratislava Jazz Days 2015, or
New Faces of the Slovak Jazz Award 2014.
