The Berklee Groove is Berklee College of Music’s student voice, an online newspaper run by musicians, for musicians. The Groove was established in 1997 as a biweekly printed newspaper, but with the 2009 website launch it became an online-only publication. With articles covering the latest music industry news, show reviews, album reviews, interviews, and more, The Groove strives to provide interesting, entertaining, and relevant information for the Berklee and Boston communities.
