San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with the Joice Walton Quintet on Friday, July 25th, 2014 @ 7:00pm in the Market Plaza in Downtown San Jose.

With her jazz, blues, soul, rock, and pop influences well known to fans in the U.S. and Europe, Joice Walton prefers to simply call what she does American Music. Walton was born and raised on a farm in Downsville, Texas, singing gospel hymns in the church choir and “Amazing Grace” down by the Brazos River. Her first trio—modeled on Diana Ross and the Supremes—gave Walton opportunities to perform on stage at school pep rallies and community events at the age of 12. Her sophomore release Texas Heat is out now, and channels music from all strains of the modern American songbook.

She is joined by regional group The Walter Bankovitch Quartet.

The vibraphone gives Grooveyard Shift a unique texture and sound that both leads and supports the combination of original tunes mixed with the occasional groovin’ cover song, while the driving rhythms and compelling sax and guitar solos bring power and style to the ensemble.

Playing a range of styles from straight ahead jazz to funk to old school RnB, Grooveyard Shift is a band that will have your head bobbing and your feet moving before you know what hit you!
