All too often, televisions and radios are energized and you’re inundated with commercials and hype…slowly killing the love of music. From that decaying ash arose a groove and when combined with modern technology, became Groove City FX (GCFX). GCFX is not a sound, but a groove gently blended with all musical genres and tempered with love. On June 1st 2015 at 8 PM, GCFX went from a dream….to a reality. We’re your home for smooth grooves and mellow vibes….GCFX!!!
