Groove Spoon was a 9 piece original funk / rock band based out of East Lansing, Michigan. The band toured the Midwest in a school bus painted purple which was often seen on highways from Chicago to New York and most often in the Michigan circuit including St. Andrews, the Magic Bag and Majestic Theater in Detroit, The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, the Club Soda in Kalamazoo and their hometown gig at the Small Planet in East Lansing. Other popular gigs included The Cubby Bear and The Elbo Room in Chicago.

The band's only release, Psychic Gyration, was packed full of original songs and snippits of studio grooves. The sound could be compared to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fishbone, with their heavy guitars and powerful horn lines igniting mosh pits at most venues. Their stage theatrics were a mix of the bizarre and energetic. The bands release charted for nearly 12 months on college radio stations as reported in CMJ magazine. The band also garnished "Best Funk Band" in the Detroit City Music Awards in 1992.
