Funk metal pioneers Infectious Grooves will be reuniting for a one-off performance that will be the group’s first show in over ten years in the U.S. The gig will be at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California on November 23, and is going to be the group’s only appearance in 2010.
Infectious Grooves was formed by bassist Robert Trujillo (now with Metallica) and Mike Muir, after Trujillo joined the band Suicidal Tendencies. The two decided to make songs centered more on the bass, and with some friends, the band was born.
Since then Steve Brunner, who has played in Suicidal Tendencies and Snoop Dogg, has taken over bass duties. The full line-up now includes Brunner, Dean Pleasants and Tim Stewart on guitar, Eric Moore on drums and Muir on vocals.
The bass-centric group released Live in France 95 earlier this year in preparation for their upcoming appearance. The release features Trujillo on bass.
