Had Used Groove play for my 50th birthday bash! Never heard them play before and what a great surprise! These guys sound awesome. They have a great set up that looks very professional. So easy to work with and so much fun! You won’t go wrong with these guys!
We had this band out to play for a private farm party. They were great! Very professional and on time. Even helped orchestrate a wedding proposal during the party. I can't say enough good things about these guys. You will be extremely pleased.
Response from Used Groove:
Thank you so much for the kind words! We loved playing for your party and hope to see you again soon!
They were a perfect choice for my husbands 40th bday. Good music, got the crowd into it, they were on time, and I did nothing except show them where to go. We had a blast!
Response from Used Groove:
Jamie, thank you so much for trusting Used Groove to entertain you and your guests for this special birthday! We had a fantastic time and hope you consider us again should you desire live music for a future event!

Drums & Lead Vocals
Mark started playing drums on a toy drum set, banging out ‘Love Her Madly’ by the Doors at the age of 4. His sweet grandmother bought him his first “real” set of drums when he was 12, and he’s been playing ever since then. His musical influences in that timeframe have ranged from the great rock and roll of AC/DC to jazz-fusion-progressive bands like King Crimson and Rush. Mark’s skills have honed over the years through formal musical instruction and teaching drums for marching percussion and a variety of music projects ranging from Contemporary Christian to Country-Southern Rock. He’s played with a number of great artists in the past like Tim Smith (Sheryl Crow, Jellyfish, Neil Finn), and Brian Harrison (producer, music director, Shelby Lynne), but today is having the time of his life playing with Shane and Don in Used Groove.
Mike Buckley - Bass Guitar
Mike is from Philadelphia, PA. He has been playing bass since he could fret a note and has been playing music up and down the east coast ever since.
Mike listens to – and plays – just about every type of popular music. From classical, the singer-songwriters of the 60’s, 70’s soft rock and funk, country, metal, and everything in between, he either knows how to play it or can tell you who recorded it. Mike has been part of several successful original and cover bands in Philly and in Georgia.
Jeff Kelly - Guitar (Lead) and Backing Vocals
I didn’t start out wanting to play guitar. Being raised in an Amish home, we really weren’t expected to do anything but the chores. But I “broke Amish” way before it became a popular TV show. I ran away from my settlement in Pennsylvania when I was 15 and literally joined a traveling fair (aka – circus). It was there that I was introduced to a freak show star, Jerry Mander. Jerry could play the ukulele with her feet (her arms were an unfortunate circumstance of a childhood prank – too long a story to tell here). So, I graduated from the ukulele to acoustic guitar, picking out all the Amish songs we sang as a kid. Then I heard a song called Voodoo Chile by Jimmy Hendrix at a fair stop in Wichita and my life was forever changed. It was right then that I took up my whole months wages and bought a cheap Peavey amp and a Squier classic vibe at a pawn shop in Poughkeepsie. Fast forward 40yrs and I’m living my dream life, living with my cat and playing great tunes with the other guys in Used Groove.
