In 2016, The MK Groove Orchestra was the house band for 9 epic movie themed dance parties thrown at The Mckittrick Hotel, home of the long running immersive theater production Sleep No More, billed as “Supercinema.” The venue was converted to the landscape of the movie and the MKGO was the house band at these parties, performing MKʼs original arrangements of music from, and inspired by, the chosen film theme for the venueʼs revelers.
Jabberwockie was written for the Alice in Wonderland Supercinema, and was chosen to be presented at this auspicious time to commemorate 15 years of the MK Groove Orchestra as a stand alone track as it represents the highest degree of artistry the band can execute and present at this time for the greatest impact.
Produced by Abe Seiferth at Transmitter Park Studio, painstaking focus and effort were taken by all parties involved in this endeavor to deliver the best quality sound, performances and production possible to make the strongest statement collectively possible.
It is our great wish that this music contribute to peace and alleviate suffering, we sincerely hope you are moved by it and it may be of some help and service.

Atlanta's finest doing what he was born to do...this is the gospel according to the Colonel and it's the pure truth: every word a pearl, every phrase a lifetime travelled...
One listen and you will carry this in your bones to your grave...and remember the Colonel's words of wisdom; "gravity always wins!" John Cratchley
