Addison Groove Project‘s 10-year career came to a close on Saturday night.
The first concert I ever booked featured AGP playing in front of 50-60 people at Skidmore College in 1998. After seeing the incredible level of talent each band member possessed, I was blown away to find out most of them were still in high school. Bassist John Hall then entered Skidmore as a student the next fall, and AGP soon recorded their first album at a venue on campus. I’m sad to see their career end, and we here at HT wish all the band members the best moving forward. Those guys are too talented to stay on the sidelines for very long.
