    Formed in the mid-80s, the party band Group Therapy has endured a successful career that included sharing the stage with touted acts such as Kool and the Gang, The Spinners and the Average White Band.
    In 2006, GT added a new dynamic to the band. The crew decided to have both a male (Ty Brown) and female (Heidi Porter) to front the group. The pair has raised the energy level, professionalism and talent of the outfit.
    Covering a wide selection of artists such as The Spinners, Bruce Springsteen, Usher, Madonna and Grandmaster Flash, GT's shows have more than enough diversity to keep audiences glued to the dance floor.
    You can see for yourself when the band performs at the Fire & Ice Lounge at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino on Saturday night.
