After a huge summer wowing audiences at tour stops that included the 10,000 Lakes Festival, Summer Camp, headlining appearances at the New Earth Festival and the Strip Mines Music Festival, and club dates all over the Midwest, more and more Family Groove Company fans are uniting, not just to enjoy the band's music, but to actively bring that music to others. The Family Groove Caravan was created to help organize this rapidly growing community.

Central to the Caravan's journey is the new Family Groove Caravan website - www.familygrooveco.com/caravan. In addition to unreleased audio/video, and backstage glimpses of the band, the new site will help to streamline the FGC community, making it easier for fans and friends to get in touch with each other, and even the band. Visitors will find numerous ways to get involved with the rapidly growing grass-roots effort to spread the word about the band, and FGC will be holding weekly contests for FGC merch, mp3 players, and VIP concert/hotel packages.
FGC will be touring in support of their 2006 release, The Charmer, but material for a new forthcoming album is already being featured prominently. "I just LOVE the new tunes we've been working on," says guitarist Adam Lewis. "There's a new energy there... a new charge that I can't quite put my finger on, but the response has been tremendous!"
