(Seguin) -- They're back! The six members that make up Austin's party band, The Grooves, will be returning to the stage during this year's KWED Freedom Fiesta. The Fourth of July celebration is set for Saturday night in downtown Seguin.
KWED General Manager Darren Dunn says The Grooves is described as one of the hottest party bands in Texas and will again look to electrify this year's event in Central Park.
"Freedom Fiesta just keeps getting bigger and bigger and better each and every year. I think The Grooves were a big part of our success last year.
They're a fun party band out of Austin. They got rave reviews from everyone in attendance last year. They had people up and out of their seats. They were dancing and having a good time all night long. A lot of folks asked us to bring The Grooves back. We were able to do that and we're excited to be able to present them," said Dunn.
The Austin based band is known for its huge song selection with music from all decades.
Dunn says after last year's exciting and energetic show, the radio station knew it had to invite them back. He says the band, no doubt, has the ability to play to the crowd switching styles and genres to keep the dance floor packed all night long.
"I think what makes The Grooves so good for us is they're a party band. They play music that everyone knows. They play music that's fun. It just adds another layer to an already festive atmosphere in downtown Seguin. I think it's part of the reason why Freedom Fiesta is so popular with people each and every year," said Dunn.
The Grooves will keep the audience entertained with both live and DJ music. The band will be one of the featured pieces of this year's Fourth of July celebration. The event will kick-off with the annual Kiddie Parade being hosted by the Guadalupe County Republican Women. Kids of all ages are invited to dress their patriotic best and decorate their bikes, wagons, strollers and/or skateboards.
They'll be led around Central Park by Uncle Sam. The parade is free and begins that day at 6:30 p.m. Awards will be given to the best two decorated floats in the walking, riding and motorized categories.
In addition, dozens of non-profit groups have again signed up to participate. They'll be providing foods ranging from pork chops on a stick to puffy quesadillas.
The event is scheduled from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday with Kiddie Parade participants encouraged to line-up by 6:15 p.m.
