Venerable and in-demand smooth & soul jazz group from Cleveland makes a summertime return to BLU! Featuring Robert Hubbard Jr., Jonathan Jones, Rodney Hubbard, Michael Austin.
HUBBS GROOVE plays jazz, soul, gospel, classical and R&B music. The band was founded in 1995 under the name “Moment’s Notice.” The founding band members are Rodney Hubbard, Cliff Coleson, David Heman, Eddie Baccus Jr. and Robert Hubbard Jr.
As band members went out on tour, the Hubb’s Groove lineup has changed, such as the introduction of Robert White, Andrew Braxton, Keith Mckelly, Jermaine Lockhart, Tony Pulizzi and Walter Barnes Jr. In 2000, the band changed its name to “Straight to the Point,” then again in 2004 to “Change on Five,” before arriving at its final destination, “Hubb’s Groove” in 2006.
The band has shared the stage with Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler, Earth Wind & Fire, Wayman Tisdale and Pieces of a Dream, to name a few.
Join us at BLU as some of Northeast Ohio’s finest smooth jazz players assemble for a memorable evening of great music! Featuring Robert Hubbard Jr., Jonathan Jones, Rodney Hubbard, Michael Austin.
