Mica’s Groove Train - Funky Soul                                      

Yamica was born in Portsmouth, NH. She is the oldest granddaughter of the late Jean M. Jones, Portsmouth’s ‘Lady of Song’ and she is great-niece to local jazz legend Sharon “Brown Sugar” Jones. At age 3, she gave her first performance and has been singing ever since. This singer/songwriter can be found performing all over the seacoast with her father, also a local legend in blues, R&B and funk, Pete Peterson.  Her first album, a collaboration with Don “Sev” Severance can be found on CD Baby. Yamica has shared the stage with many of southern New Hampshire and some of Tucson, AZ’s finest local artists, and has had the distinct pleasure of providing background vocals for Dave Gerard on his album, ‘The Zoomy Trail’.  Her current & past projects are ‘Mica’s Groove Train’, ‘Family Affair’, ‘The Mica-Sev Project’ and ‘Yamica & The Preacherz’. Musical influences for Yamica include Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, India Arie, Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Bill Withers, Hil St. Soul, Bob Marley, Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Erika Badu and Oleta Adams and many others.


Tonight onboard the Groove Train are: Yamica Peterson on lead vocals & keyboards, Sierra Peterson on vocals, Stacy Bugg on bass & vocals, Joe Rizzo on drums, Paul Lessard on guitar & vocals, Amadee Castenell on sax & flute and Henley Douglas Jr. on sax.
