GrooGrux King TOMS Custom Hand Painted Canvas Shoes
In loving memory of LeRoi Moore, beloved and incredibly talented member of The Dave Matthews Band that will forever live in our hearts and can never be replaced- he was the King of GrooGrux!
My love of DMB is absolutely no secret. Their music is not only uplifting, it's like medicine. It can transform your day and your emotions. I have been a fan from since I can remember. Just the other day my husband and I were sitting on the couch watching a concert. I was totally just mesmorized and he asked me what it was that made me completely captivated by them. It didn't take me even a moment's hesitation to find the answer. There is soul in their music and that is something you don't hear often. When you listen, even to the studio recordings, you can hear the love and joy in their music. You can hear that they absolutely love everything that they do and it pours out from their instruments and from their voices. Everything from their fun rifts that make your feet join in on the shuffles along with Dave to the sad and meloncholic songs.
When my husband and I began dating, when I was only 14 (and I still wonder just what on earth my parents were thinking letting me date so young and such an older person, but I guess they saw the same thing in him I did!!!) I turned him on to DMB and he basically just had no choice in the matter but to listen and love them too, it was a packaged deal. We have been to so many conerts together and every year we still go- it's our couple's vacation and it's where we reconnect and fall in love again. I think there is something a bit magical that happens there. And there is something incredible about meething people there that have the same likes and understandings that you do. Dave people just get it. You don't find this in like Beliebers. (don't kill me! haha) But seriously, it's really cool! It's not like a little mini Woodstock like my mom thought it was. It's just a really neat place where thousands of people gather on a hill and sit on blankets for hours and talk, sing and hang out and years later, we still are friends. I have been to concerts all around the world and it's the same thing.
So I was asked to make these actually after someone saw another pair of DMB shoes I had done. She actually wanted the other pair I did and after I emailed her, I asked if she was open to another design and she told me to just go for it, but that she was really partial to LeRoi and would love something tributing him and with her favorite lyrics on them. I told her to consider it done and the birth of these was born. This is my fave DMB shoes I have done since.
