KG native plays at sports HOF benefit

The King George High School Sports Hall of Fame Benefit Concert last week featured KGHS alum Brock Butler and his touring band Perpetual Groove along with the local band Who Took Fred.
The concert, which was held at King George High School on March 18, was the first fundraising event benefitting the new Hall of Fame.   Butler, who graduated from KGHS in 1997, kicked off the event with a solo acoustic set, followed by sets from both bands.
Butler has a long musical history, dating back to his years at KGHS, when he played in the school Jazz band and attended weekly guitar lessons at Roberson’s Music in Fredericksburg.  During his high school days he played in his first band, The Corporate Sugar Daddies.
After graduating from KGHS, Butler went on to school at Savannah College of Art and Design where he earned a degree in video and film production, with a minor in sound engineering.  Butler met Perpetual Groove’s bassist Adam Perry at the college. “It was evident we were as interested in music in our free time as our studies,” said Butler.   Perpetual Groove was born.

Perpetual Groove, based out of Athens, Ga., tours nationally and internationally with over 150 shows scheduled each year.   The versatile rock band features original songs that range from ’70s rock to softer fare.
“We try and get in touch with the mood of where we are,” Butler said, referring to the band genre.   “HEAL” is the newest album released by the band.  Butler, who is the lead guitarist and vocalist for the band, has also released an album, “Lately Here Through,” which features some of his solo acoustic material, described as having a singer/song writer, Americana folk element.  Both albums are available on iTunes and other outlets.
A short stop in his native town between two performances on each side, Butler said it was great to have a chance to give back to his former school.  All funds raised will help start up the new KGHS Sports Hall of Fame.  Perpetual Groove performed in Blacksburg the night before, where several KGHS grads who attend Virginia Tech enjoyed their music, and then the band had a performance scheduled for the following night in Washington, D.C.
The music provided by both bands was superb and all who attended really got their money’s worth in the 4-hour long concert.  The audience was also treated to a guest performer; King George Judge Horace Revercomb III stepped up with his saxophone to play a few tunes with Butler’s band.

Watch for the next KGHS Sports Hall of Fame fundraising endeavor, a golf tournament, coming soon.
