Groove Axiom is Ben Wise (Guitar, Vocals), Ray Defalco (Bass, Vocals), Matt Lima (Drums), Tyler BD (Keys, Vocals) and Zak Theis (Guitar). We're based in Rhode Island and we like to play funky rock music with extended, psychedelic improvisational jams.
Originally started as a trio (Ben, Ray, Matt) we quickly started writing songs and booking shows all over the RI/New England area. Groove Axiom's recent additions (Tyler and Zak) have opened up unexplored musical paths and breathed new life into the group. We focus on playing funky, fun, high energy sets that make people want to move and sing along. We play a mix of lyrically thoughtful, musically funky originals and covers by artists we love like: the Meters, Steely Dan, Phish, Stevie Wonder, Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, among many more.
We are actively booking shows and plan to release new studio recordings in 2020. Sign up for our mailing list to stay in the Groove, Thanks!
