HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - This weekend is the 40th Panoply Arts Festival and a band with roots in Huntsville is making an appearance!

Grooveyard was created by Huntsville-native Chip Gulbro in 2016 and soon after he found three more members to officially form the band. The band consists of Gulbro (guitar), Keith Taylor (keyboard), Bryan Williams (drums) and Chris Ferguson (bass). They have joined to form a jazz fusion band, using influences from Miles Davis, John Scofield and many others.
