Greenroom is one of my favourite local funk bands that I discovered through Jamie Hovorka, who used to play trumpet for the group. I don’t know if they are still around actually, but if you can, GO SEE THEM LIVE. Greenroom is a fun group of guys; they really know how to get a crowd going, especially when playing in their red track suits! I saw them perform only a couple times, once at the Arts Club Lounge, and the other time at the Jazz Fest (though they are not really a jazz group) back in 2003. My favourite tracks from their album Connect are “Dimentia Five” and “Milkman” (with Lindsay Davis, formerly of The Colorifics, aka Lily Frost).
