Throwback Thursday: Groove Collective Debut Album Release Party @ AKA – March 25, 1994

 

(2013)_19940325b

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, Giant Step President/CEO Maurice Bernstein shares a funny story about the Groove Collective debut album release party in 1994. Chime in with your memories from the evening!

Groove Collective’s debut album came out on Reprise, which was part of Warner Brothers Records – we had the record release party planned for that same spring. The event was to be held at AKA where the band kept their Friday night weekly residency.

Funny enough, the show never actually happened; the fire marshal shut it down because we had so many people trying to get in. We were over capacity inside the venue and there were still hundreds of people waiting outside. It still ended up being a great way to celebrate the album coming out, though – having a crowd so big that it all got shut down.
