Groove Axiom is a 5 piece Funk, Jam, Rock band from Rhode Island. Originally formed as a trio with Ben Wise (Guitar, Vocals), Ray Defalco (Bass, Vocals) and Matt Lima (Drums), the band recently added two new members: Tyler BD (Keyboards, Vocals) and Zak Theis (Guitar).
We Play a mix of funky, rocking, high energy originals and covers with a focus on thoughtful lyrics and live improvisational jams. We're like the unplanned lovechild of Phish, the Meters and Led Zeppelin. We've been fortunate to open and share the stage with TAUK, the Nth Power and Mighty Mystic along with some incredible local bands. Come catch us at a local bar/venue and get your feet shufflin'!
We would love to see you at a show. Come join the party!!!

yes. We are like Pizza. Simple, yet elegant. Tasty and hot.
“The dynamics that come with the power trio is like eating a delicious cheese pizza. Much like a cheese pizza, the ingredients of a power trio are fairly basic with it consisting of a drummer, guitarist and bassist. What makes the dynamics shine is the quality of those ingredients coming together to make something truly magnificent. Groove Axiom from Narragansett have a ton of funky jams that make people want to dance. ”
