Jay Groovara Band
Portsmouth , England
  • About
  • Singer Songwriter Jay Groovara resides in England but his musical roots are purely rooted in America, from Elvis to Nirvana and beyond. He writes his own material and combines rock and roll with improvisational ideas. Together with his band, a loose assoctation of miss-fits: Guitars will crunch, drums will be trashed and somewhere in between, you might even hear a tune.

We are a three piece rock band that hails from Portsmouth, England. Raz Popa on Drums, Kris Zalitis on Bass and Jay Groovara on guitar/vocals. Jay writes all the material and used to run a art gallery where he met Kris. Becoming fast friends, the two collaborated on gigs and were eventually joined by Raz. The band has a penchant for loud trashy rock and is notable for creating new songs or improvisations at gigs, based on audience requests. The name is a spin on Argentine Marxist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, to which Jay is inspired by.
