While many open mics have been poppin’ up in Miami in the past couple of months and many others have come and gone, Stone Groove is getting ready to celebrate its 4th year at The Vagabond.
This week your host Marcus Blake sent us over a song and video by performed at Stone Groove by long-time supporter, the very talented – Nia Devine.
“Stone Groove is the soul of The Vagabond” Carmel Ophir
Ain’t that the truth!? The artist, musicians, beatniks and poets that make-up the Stone Groove family have been radiating soul and funkadelic goodness all over Miami’s local music scene since they first took the square.
Not convinced? Dig on a bit of the magic of Stone Groove below with local diva Nia Devine.
“This song goes out to my favorite DJ. You know who you are…” Nia Devine
Written & Performed By Nia Devine
Turn that record on
I really wanna hear this song
I’ve been calling the request line
And I finally got throughI hit redial so many times
Just got one request for you
Can you play my favorite song
I’ve been working all day long
And I really wanna hear it
It would really lift my spirits
Won’t you brighten up my day
And just let that record play
Oh hey DJ
All I got
Is this music
Its all I got (2xs)
Really need your help
I couldn’t trust this job to no one else
Me and my man we just broke up
And that’s really got me down
And I know he’s probably somewhere
In his car ridin’ ‘round town
Can I make a dedication
Going out to my baby
Can you tell him that I miss him
And I wanna be his lady
This song goes out to my favorite DJ
You know who you are.
