INFECTIOUS GROOVES Performs First U.S. Show In Over 10 Years (Video)

INFECTIOUS GROOVES, the funkadelic side project of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES frontman Mike Muir, played its first U.S. show in over ten years this past Tuesday, November 23 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. This was the band's only U.S. concert of 2010.

Check out fan-filmed video footage below.

INFECTIOUS GROOVES in 2008 announced the addition of guitarist Tim Stewart and drummer Eric Moore to the group's ranks. The band's current lineup is as follows:

Mike Muir - Vocals

Tim Stewart - Guitar
Steve Brunner - Bass

INFECTIOUS GROOVES was formed soon after Robert Trujillo joined SUICIDAL TENDENCIES in 1989. Mike Muir and Trujillo got together with a few friends and started writing songs centered more around the bass, but with the intent of giving everyone else a whole lot of freedom.

"SEX PISTOLS and PARLIAMENT were my two favorite bands when I was young," says Muir. "People think they are completely different but I saw a lot of similarities, even if musically they were categorized as completely different styles. There's something beautiful about breaking rules that never should have been made."

INFECTIOUS GROOVES' most recent album, "Mas Borracho", came out in 2000.
