JV Squad

From Spring 2014 through Summer 2016 I played electric guitar and sang a little bit with the JV Squad. Jared and Vanessa Bentley are two of the best rock and roll singers and “front-people” in this area, and I was proud to play and sing with them. The rest of the group is made up of Mike Sams on drums, Kevin Light on bass (and sometimes vocals — excellent harmony singer!), and Jerry Henninger on keys. They are all local music veterans, like myself, and I can easily count off the names of two dozen bands they’ve been in over the years, in every genre of popular music there is, from bluegrass to blues to jazz to Americana to heavy metal to jam to country to alternative rock, but the JV Squad would best be described as soul-influenced rock and roll, with a heavy emphasis on the “roll.”
