The St. Luke Community Connection Series Presents

Dr. B's Groove

St. Luke Church, 568 Montgomery Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA presents the second in its 2024 series of "Community Connection" events on Sunday evening, June 30th at 7:00PM, with a performance by funk/jazz ensemble, Mr. B’s Groove, led by Philadelphia’s own Marcell Bellinger.

Formed in 2013, Dr. B’s Groove is an eight-piece instrumental R&B group that skillfully,

creates a powerful blend of funk and jazz that make it almost impossible not to want to get up and move. Members include Red Thunder (Trombone), The Barron. (Tenor), T Bone (Alto), Two Soxx (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), The Professor (Bass), El Gato (Drums), Greg K. (Guitar) and Marcell B. (Trumpet/Flugelhorn, piano, compositions).

Originally a seven-piece funk styled band, based on Temple University’s Philadelphia campus—the ensemble was a vehicle for Temple Music professor, Marcel Bellinger, to give voice to his own compositions. It quickly grew to become a tight, versatile, musical unit, and through gigs at local clubs in Philadelphia, the band found unanimous acclaim. As word spread of their impressive, energetic performances, a dedicated following of funk and jazz enthusiasts grew. Compositionally solid, musically inspiring, and “a blast” to experience live, the band has been recruited by schools in and around the Philadelphia area to perform at various events that have earned them even a broader following.


St. Luke UMC presents an evening of funk and jazz with Mr. B’s Groove, Sunday, June 30th at 7:00PM at 568 Montgomery Avenue in Bryn Mawr, PA. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, with all proceeds being turned over to the compensation for the artists and donations to humanitarian causes via Humanitix.
