Jerry Kallestad named a "Guitar Hero" by High Plains Reader

An article in the January 24, 2013 issue of HPR paid tribute to several FM area "Guitar Heros". The Groove Tones are pleased to announce our guitarist Jerry was among those honored. Here is the story on the HPR website. Congratulations Jerry!

Maxx Tone is taking a much deserved Sabbatical.

March 2013: Pat Moltzan, AKA "Maxx Tone" our Sax player and front man has announced he isparing back his participation with the band, to spend more time with his family. Pat is a hard working man who spends most of his work week for his "day job" on the road. We respect and understand Pat's decision, and hope that he can return to the GrooveTones when time permits. We have no intention of replacing the inimitable Pat, he is welcome whenever he wants to sit in or return. We will continue on as a four piece band. The GooveTones send a big THANK YOU to Pat and his family! To our fans, as always: Thanks For Being Our Friends !! We Look Forward to Seeing You Soon!!
