We will officially kick off the Richmond Jazz Festival weekend at RVA favorite, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery (Richmond) for the Hardywood Food Truck Court with music provided by Evolution of The Groove.

Funk, rock, R&B, hip-hop, soul, gospel, jazz: These are the elements that have molded and shaped the core sound, as well as, the overall experience that is Evolution of The Groove. Originally founded in 2010 by Steven Cunningham and Chris Sclafani, the band focused on combining the elements of each members’ background to create a new and unique sound that would emphasize the preservation of the ever lasting “Evolution” and “Groove” that is music. ETG is back, bringing with them a brand new sound, with everything from high energy, in-your-face jams, to soothing, meaningful beats, featuring emotional lyrics as well as invigorating instrumentals.

The Hardywood Food Truck Court is a street foodie's delight with local gourmet mobile food vendors and many more carts on rotation in the weeks to come. Enjoy our line up of seasonal craft beers to pair with an eclectic variety of food for meat lovers and vegetarians alike!

Hardywood Food Truck Court runs from 5:30-9pm (the brewery is open until 10pm, last call 9:30) every Thursday through the season and is a family friendly environment. All ages are welcome at the brewery. Virginia ABC law prohibits bringing outside alcoholic beverages on-site, and underage drinking will be strictly prohibited.
