On an unusually warm December evening, even for Florida, Mavericks Live welcomed an eager crowd to witness the long-awaited return of Perpetual Groove to Jacksonville. Enjoy a few pics from the November 30th show below and view the full photo gallery here.
Doors opened at 8pm with the hip hop/punk fusion band Cloud 9 Vibes setting an enjoyable tone for the night:
Local favorites Lucky Costello primed the dance floor with their catalog of pyschedelic crowd-pleasing jams. It might have been hump day, but a Lucky show always feels like a Friday night good time:
House lights signaled for the headliner around 11pm. Taking their places among each other in anticipation, the audience huddled together in excitement. It was almost time for the main event, which would take us on a roller coaster ride into the unknown for nearly two hours. Mixing in an agreeable dose of both originals and covers, PGroove put on an exhilarating show to kick off the Florida tour run.
Following the Jacksonville stop, PGroove headed to The Crowbar in Tampa before hitting a two-night run at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale. Set lists from those shows are below, and a full recap with audio/video from the Ft. Lauderdale sets are up on LiveForLiveMusic.
