The concert Thursday night at Garwoods to open Snow Fest, featuring Groove Foundry, was a huge success. The band had the crowd on their feet and a great time was had by all. If you missed this great performance, look for a future post with details on their next shows in mid-April at Bar of America in Truckee and at Northstar.
