Crooked River Groove acts to reunite for scholarship benefit
November 28, 2016
Followers of the local music scene might remember Crooked River Groove, a long-running cable access show taped at Cuyahoga Community College.
The show’s run ended three years ago, after about 400 episodes, but some of the most well-known acts featured on the show are reuniting for a reunion concert this Sunday, Dec. 4, at the Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Road in Cleveland.
The concert will also serve as a fundraiser to benefit student scholarships – a cause that traces a line back to one of Crooked River Groove’s primary purposes as a vehicle for educating Tri-C music and production students.
The show, which starts at 6 p.m., is scheduled to include acts such as Xela, Brent Kirby, Carlos Jones, Maddie Finn/The Whiskey Hollow and Tracy Marie & Friends – not to mention former Crooked River Groove host Tommy Wiggins, who will also take a turn performing.
Admission comes with a request for a $10 donation to the scholarship fundraising drive.
