Feeling groovy

Queenie and the Groove Kings start at 8 p.m. at Hermann’s Jazz Club

Queenie and the Groove Kings play Hermann’s Jazz Club on Nov. 30.

Vocalist Jill Galt leads a seasoned eight-member band to recreate the sounds of Motown, Gloria Estefan, Gladys Knight, Chicago and Blood Sweat and Tears with Queenie and the Groove Kings.

The band, which plays Hermann’s Jazz Club Nov. 30, offers a high-energy music and dance experience that  features old school rhythm and blues, Motown and stax classics, Latin-pop, and horn driven sounds.

Galt began her career singing, dancing and playing music at an early age. At 17, she joined a 27-piece show band from Calgary called Stratus Faction. The band performed in showrooms, clubs and hotels from Toronto to Las Vegas. After a career performing around the world, she returned to Victoria in 2008.
