“…To sum up how I am, I’m a groove merchant, always searching for a groove. That’s my mission – to find the grooves, me grabbing it and locking it in. Every time I play, I want to be able to capture it. When a band locks down on a groove, it’s powerful. It can become hypnotic. It gets people dancing, excited. Once you’ve experienced that, you’re always in search of it. There’s power in it – it’s joyous. You’re giving it and the crowd is giving it back to you. It makes you want to play all night long – you just don’t want to stop.”
