Groove, The

Melbourne (Australia) band The Groove experienced local success with their single, Simon Says, which came out in October 1967 and stayed in the Melbourne Top 10 for 20 weeks and the Sydney Top 10 for 16 weeks.

They followed this with a self-titled album which also contained the singles Soothe Me (#14) and What Is Soul? 

A further single, You Are The One I Love did not reach the Top 40 but The Groove went on to win the Hoadley’s Battle of the Sounds in 1968, which earned them a trip to England.

They relocated there in March 1969, changing their name to Eureka Stockade in 1970 and releasing the single Sing No Love Songs before disbanding in 1971.

Keyboard player Tweed Harris and guitarist Rod Stone toured the UK and Europe backing Cliff Richard. Stone also toured in the backing band for comedians Morecambe and Wise. Drummer Geoff Bridgford joined The Bee Gees while singer Peter Williams later joined The Mixtures.

Tweed Harris died of throat cancer on 13 October 2004, aged 63.
