The year was 1979. The little Lady Marmalade was in third grade as she sat in her bedroom listening to the record player spin her favorite 45’s. Knock on Wood rang out loudly as she sang the woooooo woo woo woo woo wooooo. Her long braids and dress Mom made showed she was a seventies child. She didn’t know what Disco was let alone that it was a craze sweeping the dance floors of America. When Saturday Night Fever came out in the theaters a couple years before she had begged, “Please Mom, I want to see the Jungle Boogie tooooo!” “No” was the answer because it was rated “R” and that meant no amount of begging would help her funky cause. “I closed myself back in my room and bellowed out I Will Survive!” Until the 80’s rolled around... That’s when sweet and zesty grew into hot-n-spicy. She fell in love with Heavy Metal and all the rebellion it brought. The Dancing Queen hadn’t started singing in bands yet but wanted to be a Rockstar! Motley Crue, Ratt, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, Dokken and Metallica were now blasting from her room. Cassette tapes and a boom box replacing the 45’s. Upon graduation our Bad Girl began pursuing a music education degree. Surely all of those music classes would propel her to stardom. She joined her first band, Sabadical, as lead singer. “I was in love again...with the stage. I never reached Shining Star status but I have had the privilege of jamming with and knowing some of the most talented musicians in NOVA.” Currently this hot momma is lead singer for 80s hard rock band, The All Stars, original/cover metal band, Isabella’s Furnace 2.0, and now returning to her childhood fave with Groovalicious, the Ultimate Disco Revival. “I’m blessed to be playing with these talented musicians and long time friends.” And we are super jazzed to groove with you too, baby! Can’t wait to Boogie Oogie Oogie with you!!! Stacy Kay Schraa

I am Spleef

Bass

The year was 1977. The Sear’s Toughskin jean jacket was brown and the record patch on the back read “disco kid”! The boy was just eleven years old but he already had the boogie in his soul. Unfortunately, he also had two left feet and spent most of the nights at the Rec center community dance standing in the corner next to the big speaker with the bass thumping in his head. Fast forward to 1980 and high school. We are on the cusp of 80’s hair metal and “my friends ask if I want to start a band”. They need a bass player. What? Are you kidding? A chance for his fingers to get out the groove that his feet could not! The Disco Kid jacket was replaced with a “Death before Disco” t shirt. Proudly displaying a skull pierced by a dagger and a snake crawling through the eye sockets. The hypocrisy was brazen but he was not to be deterred not even by the ridicule of his friend Mike Braxton. “Sharifi bung. Yo grandma.” ? Satin gave way to leather. Bellbottoms became straight leg and platforms descended to capezios. The wristbands could not have enough spikes nor could the hair. Through decades of rocking every stage imaginable on the east coast with great bands like Fever, MisFit, Cyclone Ranger, Bonedance, Punchbuggy, Hot Buttered Elvis and Soul Kitty 6, there was always that burning ember of desire to get the funk out. Fast forward to 2017. Here Come the Mummies are kicking out a crushing set of their own disco/funk/soul. The joint is jumpin! Everyone is smilin! Booties are shakin! A good time is had by all, baby! These mutha funkas are groovy! And the inspiration was born. A call went out. The response was Super Freaky! The Disco Inferno was aflame in the hearts of the masses! Thus Groovalicious was born! A tribute to all things disco. The music. The glitter. The boogie, baby! And we have this man to thank. Or blame? Shahin Sharifi But we just call him Spleef!

I am Patrizio

Guitar

The year was 1968. A young Patrizio moves from the Boogie boot of Italy to the USA for a new Funkytown. Our little Roman loved the Jackson 5 and would Shake his Groove thing to… ABC! It’s easy as 1, 2, 3. Baby, you and me! The Italian stallion was a major jock at an early age playing little league football, basketball and baseball. His transition to music came when everyone kept growing and he stopped. His brother called it " From jock to rock". But for this Macho Man it was no Tragedy! With the call to Play That Funky Music he picked up guitar at the age of 12 and was performing in clubs at the age of 16 which did not work well getting up for school. Although he played mostly rock in bands Rapid Transit, Illusion, Sting, Wreckless, Sweet Revenge, Devious, The Reagans, In Denial, Old School, Machine Gun Preachers, and Raising RPM the funk was still in him. He plied his guitarsmithing in the funk band Rythmic Metal Funk with sweet sister Stacy K as the lead singer. He has a love for all styles of music including classic rock, R&B and funk with Nunno Bettencourt as a favorite guitar player because he incorporates the funk with the rock. The six string slinger took a few years off to focus on family. His wife is his biggest supporter and she coaxed him into returning to his passion of live performance. Mamma Mia we thank you for that! “My life is family and music.” Pat Romano We Are Family and it is very groovy to have you as a boogie brother!

I am Saxy Mike

Saxophone

The year was 1992 Charlie Parker was blowin on the jambox. It was so fly that daddy-o flipped his lid and was fractured to Pick up the Pieces and play saxophone. Our saxy mutha funka is a freelance axeman in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. He sports the tasty chops for any scene and plays a mean popsickle stick. We’re not Jive Talkin when we say it’s outta this world!. Highly trained in jazz music people say he is the cat’s pajamas. This finger zinger ain’t no birdbrain and is also hip to rock, funk, r&b, Boogie Oogie Oogie and anything else that swings. He is copacetic with GROOVY music; no matter what the style and really knows his beeswax. Just give him some heat and dig the smokin as he is trading 4s. Playing music for the rest of his life has been a dream for 26 years, since he was a prom-trotter. Teaching music is another venture. He teaches saxophone and clarinet. This real McCoy knows his onions and received a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a Minor in Jazz Studies at George Mason University and an Associates degree from Northern Virginia Community College. He also got the goods at the University of North Texas, and the Hartt School of Music where he was hittin on all sixes as lead tenor in their award-winning jazz ensembles. And that’s no applesauce, baby! “I would like to thank Bill Jacoby, Dennis Brown, Bryan Kidd, Billy Taylor, Yusef Lateef, and Jim Carroll for all the motivation to get to this point." Those cats are the bee knees, baby! Mike Marolda

I am Ralphie Boy

Trumpet

The year was 1973. It was in the third grade when a little Armstrong was introduced to the trumpet by his daddy-o who played and sang with traditional jazz bands in merrie olde England. Pops shared his love of jazz by introducing him to great blowers like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella and tons of others. The next year in school our Trumpeteer began to toot his own horn and loved it! He studied classical trumpet and played in orchestra but always Turned the Beat Around to noodle with big bands, small jazz groups, rock bands and etcetera. Listening to big band wasn’t the coolest thing and he used his pinky hook to expand his range and add the colour of Miles and Coltrane on one side with Earth Wind & Fire on the other. He started his college days in the Manhattan School of Music. At the same time he was in a salsa band that played mostly in Queens. No premature articulation for this eighteen year old who Loved the Nightlife and would gig from evening to dawn. What a Celebration! It was the best of times, baby! After playing the Manhattan Skyline for years he decided to put an end to the Hustle. and family became his focus. But a few years ago the Fire returned and he started playing again! Since then he has played in a long and varied list of groups including a blues band (The Curbfeelers), a reggae band (Nkula), a hip hop jazz pop group (The Pugilists), a big band (Capitol Lab Band), two orchestras and now he has put on his Boogie Shoes and added his Frankenhorn to the Groovalicious monster!
