A fun band that gets you to dance to the jazz standards, songs from the 30s & 40s to today!
Alice arrived early, was very pleasant and professional, and our members loved her performance during our Valentine's event! She is a very talented pianist and singer, highly recommended!
Response from Groovin' River:
We do appreciate the feedback! Alice had a great time. We thank you for the opportunity to work with you and we hope you’ll keep us in mind if we can be of assistance in any future musical needs.

Groovin’ River began with Alan Stewart and Wild Man Dave. They wanted to form a band that reflected their interest in a wide range of American music – popular jazz, show tunes, Latin and country blues.
We were joined by vocalist Zoë Mullican, who brings her exciting, dynamic performance style, and Norm Ballinger, who is an experienced, knowledgeable guitarist and singer-songwriter on his own.
Jorge de Armas is a Latin percussionist who is in great demand. Alice Evans, an accomplished performer, musician, and songwriter in her own right, joined us as our keyboard player.
