Chad Rager Groove

The latest "CHAD RAGER Groove" CD
"21st Century Groove" is with Strokeland Records .
The band mixes a variety of moods while introducing
the whole band along the way: soloists, sections, and of course
Chad Rager's driving drums, as everybody gets a chance to shine.

"Chad Rager demonstrates amazing skills and the ability to weave
an interesting percussive display."

Naming the band the "CHAD RAGER Groove" reflects the fact
that this band is not confined to traditional big band selections,
but that it is confident enough to venture out into rock and funk selections as well.

The guiding principal of the band is the "groove",
and swingin in a great big way with
smooth tasteful sounds that appeals to listeners ears.

Rager's arrangements have reintroduced me to an old friend, only all spruced-up.
Familiar, but new. Loved for its familiarity but appreciated in its new incarnation.

"A truly impressive performance"

If you enjoy most of the styles that jazz can take,
Rager offers several "flavors" to choose from, and you won't be disappointed.

"Every song we select has affected me in a musical and personal way. I
feel blessed to be able to perform them!" Chad Rager
