Tomás Doncker & True Groove All Stars
Tomás Doncker cut his teeth as a guitarist with such genre-busting groups as

James Chance & The Contortions; Defunkt; J. Walter Negro & The Loose Jointz;

and many more, making him a prime mover on New York’s downtown“No Wave”

scene in the early 1980s. Eventually he went international, touring and recording

in Japan with jazz pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, and producing studio and

songwriting sessions with Bootsy Collins, Yoko Ono, and Grammy-nominated

Reggae vocal group The Itals, among others.

Since then, Doncker has continued to work with such iconic artists as: Madonna,

Ivan Neville; Bonnie Raitt; Meshell Ndegeocello; Corey Glover of Living Colour;

former Parliament Funkadelic keyboardist Amp Fiddler; 2013 Grammy award

nominee Shamekia Copeland,and Israeli roots-Fusion artist Ravid Kahalani's

Yemen Blues.His ongoing collaborations with NYS Poet Laureate and Pulitzer

Prize winner Yusef Komunyakaa (the critically acclaimed album “Big Apple

Blues” and the highly anticipated 10 Anniversary release of “The Mercy Suite”)

are celebrated worldwide. Beyond that, he has produced hundreds of records-and

is the Founder and CEO of NYC's fastest rising record label, True Groove

Records.

Tomás’ label True Groove Records produced the first proper James Chance &

The Contortions album in over 25 years, “The Flesh Is Weak”. The recording was

well-received with features in Mojo, Spin, Brooklyn Vegan and was featured on

NPR’s “All Songs Considered” and Henry Rollins on KCRW. It is also in heavy

rotation at KEXP, KALX and throughout the country.

Tomás’ band, The True Groove All-Stars, is comprised of A-list musicians from

NYC whose credits range from legendary soul diva Aretha Franklin to Cyndi

Lauper to iconoclast Bill Laswell to name just a few.
