    The GROOVALOTTOS - Biography

    The GROOVALOTTOS are a soul-funk band comprised of studio and touring musicians. Noted as one of the most entertaining bands in New England, their exciting and captivating brand of music celebrates the Afro-Native roots of soul, funk, blues and jazz as a medicine of good vibes and spirits. NDN Soul-Funk is a tradition and legacy carried on by these Choctaw, Cherokee and Wampanoag song keepers, who take their audience on a journey of classic soul, blended with a tight set list of funky originals.

    The GROOVALOTTOS are Comprised of Eddie Ray Johnson, drums and vocals; Mwalim “Daphunkeeprofessor”, keyboards and vocals; and Redbone Johnson on bass and vocals.

    BAND HISTORY:

    Formed in 2009 when guitarist and veteran Motown session player, James Wolf wanted to assemble a band of some of the hippest soul, funk, jazz and blues players in the area. One night, he heard Mwalim, a NAMMY nominated and Urban Music Award winning, Mashpee Wampanoag soul-funk-jazz artist play keyboards and sing, and knew he had to play with him. Wolf introduced Mwalim to his long-time collaborator: Eddie Ray Johnson, a Choctaw and Cherokee drummer and vocalist who had toured nationally with a who's who of front artists. The trio began jamming together, deciding to pursue an original band project. Wolf eventually left the band, replaced by Cherokee bassist, Red Bone Johnson.

    Armed with a slew of funky, groovy soul originals by Mwalim as well as some re-tooled covers, the band has quickly become a much sought after group by club owners, promoters and event planners, up and down the coast.
