Meet the Entertainers

September 4
North River Band
 


North River began as a trio in 2008.  New Hampshire seacoast area musicians Dan, Vicky and Dianne played a 'one time' benefit show together and had so much fun they have been playing their version of Pop, Folk and Soul covers at venues in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine ever since.   The group plays out as a Duo or Trio and becomes the 'Trio Large' and brings along a full band for events when needed
Vicky Poland and Dianne McMillen, the vocal dynamic duo of the band, have been singing together since 2005. They began making music together in the           acapella group Vocal Exchange.  Taking their great vocal harmonies one step further, both Vicky and Dianne lend their singing talent to the Funky Divas of Gospel. Whether it's Folk, Rock, Country or Gospel music, if you give us a mic we'll sing you a song!
“Dangerous” Dan Poland, has been part of the Seacoast music scene for over 30 years. He is a masterful guitar player who can play anything we throw at him. Dan not only plays with North River Band, he is currently with The Funky Divas of Gospel. He has founded and played in a number of different bands including White Lies, Forecast, and Boca Roca and The Jeannie Daniels Band.

                    Pete Peterson

  

Cleveland Peterson III (aka) Pete Peterson, was born and raised in Florida. As a child and young teen, he was heavily influenced musically with a steady dose of southern gospel and rhythm and blues music. He learned to play guitar at the age of sixteen, later learned to play Bass and keyboard. He formed his own band and traveled throughout Florida. He attended the University of South Florida where he had an engineering scholarship but left school to pursue his passion for playing and performing. His journey eventually landed him in Portsmouth, NH where he met his soon to be wife.  While raising a family he  put his musical career on hold, while working full time and playing weekend gigs. As the years passed he performed throughout New England with a host of local bands. His passion grew stronger and he became a composer, arranger and vocalist. He is presently performing with his band " Rhythm Method " alongside his oldest daughter. The band has performed at Venues ranging from " Sugar Loaf USA " to the " Bay City Blues Cafe" in Memphis and has been ranked by New Hampshire Magazine as New Hampshire's best Blues band. He started the dynamic duo " FamilyAffair " with his daughter Yamica and continues to light up the stages all over New England.
