Description:
"Smooth soul with a taste of R&B and a sprinkle of New Orleans grooves"

Larry Vann - drums/ vocals
Michael Warren - bass
Paul Branin - guitar/ sax
Roscoe Gallo - keys

“The Groove Merchant”, is the title appointed to this San Francisco Bay Area legend.  Authentic “root music”, the essential substance of his artistic source, is the foundation for this superbly seasoned artist’s own music branding, which fuses the essence of soul-stirring blues, sweet, mellow jazz and authentic soul, R&B and funk. The “Groove Merchant’s” groove will grab a hold on you.

Larry Vann has toured and recorded with The Whispers, Martha Reeves, The Marvelettes, Charles Brown, Buffy Saint Marie, Randy Crawford, Charlie Musselwhite, Brian Auger and many more.  His work with Ron Thompson & The Resistors contributed to the band earning two Bammy awards. Vann's honors include The Blues Society's West Coast Hall of Fame "Blues Drummer of the Year" and The Jazz Institute's "Man of the Year".

Michael Warren has performed and toured with a great spectrum of dynamic artists including Merl Saunders, BB King, Randy Crawford, Maria Muldaur, Buddy Miles, The Crusaders, The Dave Matthews Band and many others.

Paul Branin has worked and toured with Levon Helm and backed up Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and others while working with Levon, as well as playing with Rick Danko and Garth Hudson. He's also worked with jazz legends like Jimmy McGriff, Hank Crawford, and Jack DeJonette. Other bands include Orleans, Robbie DuPree as well as numerous local and regional acts on both the East and West Coasts.

Roscoe Gallo has performed with many local musicians and singers including the Jules Broussard Band, Malo, The Fred Ross Project and The Starlight Orchestra, Alvon Johnson, Frank Biner, Pacific Brass and Electric, and many others.
