It’s rare for a jazz band of this size to play this type of music. Celebrate it: The eight-piece Groove Orchestra easy collides the sounds of Donny Hathaway and Herbie Hancock and J Dilla, spreading beats like peanut butter, thin but dense. Led by the multi-instrumentalist and singer Sam Prather, the band’s stratospheric center lies in the light-tongued vocals of Christie Dashiell. Two separate sets at 8 & 10 p.m.
