My band (the amazing Tony Lee and the super-jammin’ Jody Giachello) will be joined by Ohio-based Freekbass who is ridiculously funky. And of course, the amazing Prodéje will be there”. She adds, “My California people are really the reason I got into and have loved my music.”
Presently based in Lexington, Kentucky, ellee ven is the creator and producer of the yearly music/art/fashion extravaganza, “Give into the Groove”, which raises monies each year for numerous Lexington charities, now in its thirteenth year. ven also created TheVirtualQuilt.com, a free digital platform where supporters can upload images of their original artwork for inclusion in an online exhibit and interactive community experience to help increase awareness about local charities. “I call myself groovalutionary because my music and my mission are more about doing the things that I believe embody my best self. Sometimes that means writing and jamming and many times that means using my experience to draw attention to those less fortunate.”
