TAMPA – WMNF’s fifth annual Groovefest is more than just some jam bands getting their rhythms on in the August night. The jam bands set to play this event promise to create the vibe that usually only happens at huge weekend-long festivals.

The Groovefest 5 takes place Saturday, Aug. 16, 2 p.m. to midnight, at Skipper’s Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road, Tampa.

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Call 813-238-8001 or visit WMNF.­org/e­vents.

Headlining this year’s Groovefest will be The Lee Boys.

The Lee Boys work well in a variety of venues ranging from intimate club settings to performing arts centers and large festival stages. Their music attracts audiences from the jamband, folk, blues and Gospel worlds. They’ve performed throughout the United States, Canada and Europe and will continue influencing audiences worldwide with their “sacred steel.”

Also performing will be Holey Miss Moley.

Described as a "a quintet dripping in jazz, funk, rock and blues with a touch of reggae and ska thrown in for good measure,” Holey Miss Moley draws from a wealth of influences and repertoire while always maintaining a groove that will surely get one out of their seat. This "filthy funk" sextet from central Florida can range from hard-hitting riffs and dynamic grooves, to calming harmonies and smooth melodies that give the listener a full spectrum of blissful sonority.

The band High Cotton also has joined the lineup.

High Cotton is the definition of good things and fine times, played through a collection of classic Widespread Panic songs. Drawing from the early Panic years, their live shows are full of grit and edge. The band mixes influences of southern rock with a bit of the Allman Brothers, Santana and the Grateful Dead.

Also appearing at Groovefest 5 will be Earth Bombs Mars, Shane Meade & The Sound, Shoeless Soul, Boxcar Hollow, Tangled Mangos, Oak Hay, JT Brown and Rich Whiteley.
