This is going to cost you.  I cannot give you an answer, only possibilities.

 

 

A record has grooves.  That is where the needle goes.  Perhaps the name of the group uses "groove" as a reference to music.

 

A groove is also something like "uma boa".  It's a good mood, a good feeling, etc.  A groovy person is someone who is nice, pleasant, etc. Um cara legal.  (This is very old slang,maybe from the 1960s.)  I remember bits of lyrics from those years that say something about "working on a groovy feeling" and "everything is groovy".

 

Coverage is like cobertura in the newspaper or journalism sense.

 

Now, you put them together and what do you get?  Well, you get a name that doesn't seem to make much sense.  However, many group names make little sense.  How about the Jefferson Airplane?  The Iron Butterfly? 

 

As I said, all I can do is offer you some possibilites, not an answer.
