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

Hey DJ 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)
Hey DJ 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.
