SWEET POTATOES

SWEET POTATOES

Modern jazz inspired by the rich legacy of classics, featuring violin and guitar.

Sweet Potatoes is a fearless jazz quartet that bends boundaries with soulful renditions of classic covers, originals, and spontaneous jams filled with vocal scats, violin riffs and a dynamic rhythm section.

The group was founded by Johnny Hargrove, a classical guitar major at VCU self-taught in Jazz. Reyna Pannell, trained in classical violin, is a self taught singer with amazing vocal range. Stephon Larue, seasoned musician and jazz drum set major at VCU, has performed, toured, and recorded with many bands from Richmond to Charlottesville. The group's newest member Brian Cruse is a classical and jazz bass player who has performed and recorded with a variety of ensembles.
