Euge Groove born in Annapolis, Maryland, graduated from the University of Miami School of Music in 1984. A rather late-bloomer in the genre, Grove did not record his first solo album until 2000. Prior to that, he had replaced Richard Elliot in the Tower of Power when Elliot decided to pursue a solo career, and he also did session work with various pop acts, most noticeably the Miami girl group Exposé. He has a sax solo on their #1 hit "Seasons Change," and another on their 1993 hit "I'll Never Get Over You (Getting Over Me)."

Grove adopted the name Euge Groove, which consists of a shortening of his middle name and a very frequent mispronunciation of his last. While initially it was presumed to be coined by fans who saw him perform in Europe, Grove later indicated in an interview on XM Radio during the summer of 2006 that his Mother-in-Law conceived the idea for his stage name.

Nick Colionne’s ability to electrify has made him one of the most in demand headliners on the circuit, playing his trademark Epiphone ES 175 guitar at top festivals (Berks Jazz Fest, Capital Jazz Fest, Catalina Jazz Trax Festival, Seabreeze Jazz Festival, JazzFest West, Punta Gorda Jazz Festival, Cancun Jazz Fest, Brian Culbertson’s Napa Valley Jazz Getaway), on theme cruises (Capital Jazz Cruise, The Smooth Jazz Cruise, Dave Koz Cruise,) and in other famed venues (The Soiled Dove in Denver, Scullers Jazz Club in Boston, the Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton). Nick has also performed several times at the Smooth Jazz Festival Augsburg in Germany, the Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival in Spain and Pizza Express in London, where he headlines annually with multiple shows.

The recipient of the 1996 Malcom X College Alumnus of the Year Award (he earned his degree there in music), Colionne has devoted much of his spare time over the past 20 years to mentoring children at St. Laurence K-8 School in Elgin, Illinois. His roles include counseling, teaching music, computer music skills and guitar, and assisting with talent shows and holiday pageants.
