The Groove Gang
The big band "The Groove Gang" has been around for 17 years. Since 2001, it has been an integral part of the Christmas and summer concerts of the Teletta Gross-Gymnasium in Leer, but outside of the school there have been and still are concerts, such as concerts. at the jazz amateur meeting in Emden or at various events in Leer and surroundings. Because of the partnership between the Bogerman College and the Teletta -Gym High School, the band also traveled several times to Sneek to perform there together with the Bogerman Big Band. There were also other interesting collaborations with the hip-hop / jazz formation "Jazzkantine", the Hanoverian big band "Fette Hupe" and with "Windmachine", the Lower Saxony State Youth Jazz Orchestra. The 28 musicians between the ages of 13 and 20 play a varied program of classic big band swing, funk and soul numbers and well-known pop songs and are looking forward to attending the "At the Watergate-Festival" in Sneek.
