The Groovetramps are Melanie Owen & Joseph Barton. Joseph has worked with Denver bands such as The Clam Daddies, The Train Wreckers, Tempa & the Tamtrums, Potcheen and The Thommy Knoxvilles. He also spent some time on the road with Randy MacAllister and Buddy Whittington. Currently, in addition to The Groovetramps, he plays bass and guitar for Seattle bands Red Sun Revue and Gin Creek, and recently has spent time touring with Portland powerhouse Karen Lovely. Melanie fronted Cedar Avenue Blues Band in Denver for 4 years with John Weeks and has worked with Denver artists Eef, Thommy Knox and Moses Walker. She has worked with Seattle artists Cody Rentas, Michelle Taylor, Rafael Tranquilino, Gin Creek, Tommy Cook and Teri Ann Wilson and Red Sun Revue, and currently plays bass for the West Coast Women's Blues Revue where she gets to back up awesome Seattle artists like Patti Allen, Lady A, Stacy Jones and Teri Anne Wilson. Joseph and Melanie, with Rick Jacobson of the Wired Band on drums, run a super fun Sunday Afternoon Blues Jam (3-7:30pm, outside when weather permits) at the 192 Brewing Company in Kenmore that has been going since April 2015. The Groovetramps bring a fun, fresh take on old school blues, R&B, zydeco, jazz standards, classic rock and americana and present smart, soulful originals. Their live show is fun, interactive, full of energy and humor. They play clubs and stages of all sizes as well as private events.
