If you’re looking to engage in a little pre-Christmas festivities you could consider dropping by Bushwakker tonight. Wednesday nights the brew pub runs a folk music series, while Mondays are devoted to jazz and blues.

Tonight, the Ministry of Groove will be taking the stage to entertain at 8 p.m. Formed in 2010 by keyboardist Dennis Hendricksen, the band includes Kevin Kasha on trumpet, Chris Jacklin and Art Neale on saxophones, Yvonne Redant on trombone, Danny Jones on bass, Tim Holt on guitar, and Tom Hearn on Drums.

The Ministry of Groove specializes in jazz/funk music from the 1970s and later. They also play some original tunes, along with some unique covers by The Doors, Chicago, Herbie Hancock and others.

Again, the show is tonight at 8 p.m. at Bushwakker and admission is free
