Groove in the Garden 2016

(Pictures by Evan, Missy, & Jenkins)

2016 marked the second annual Groove in the Garden presented by Younger Brother Productions and The Pour House Music Hall! Being held in a beautiful rose garden, this all-day event has some sort of magic to it. It brought in all ages with a family-friendly atmosphere. With the local influence in the performers and the vendors, this event felt wholesome, intimate, and genuine. Between the vendors, the lineup, and the atmosphere Groove in the Garden is the all-around best Summer event in Raleigh, NC.

Our favorite acts had to have been Inflowential and The Fabulous Knobs. Inflowential brought us a creative take on HipHop, with live beat boxing, a guitar, and a bass as instrumentals. The Fabulous Knobs brought all the old Raleigh rockers from the 1980s back to their college days. The energy was incredible.

The main stage was high energy and in the direct sunlight for most of the day. For folks who wanted to chill out, Groove In the Garden added a garden stage this year. This stage had a more calm and personal vibe and plenty of space for children to play. The rose bushes surround the stage made for an ethereal experience.

Groove in the Garden focused heavily on incorporating children’s activities this year–with a special station just for playtime. This station had face painting, coloring, bubble blowing; basically anything a kid could ever dream of. In another area, there was a dunk tank. How fun? And as usual, the vendors were unique and fun.
