This band began as the brainchild of bassist Ed Markey.  Seeking to form a local group to jam with, he recruited neighbors Laura Breece (vocals), Mike Murphy (lead guitar) and Jim Merchant (rhythm guitar).  Drummer Joey Casella came a bit later, discovered by parttime roadie Tom Breece on the golf course nearby. Getting together weekly over the next year, they found a partnership of musicians that truly love classic rock music.  They compiled their musical knowledge, developed a large working playlist, and began doing local gigs.  Pine River loves performing for crowds of all ages, and are ready to entertain at your event! 


We play a satisfying mix of classic rock, country rock, yacht rock and blues, with a side dish of sexy jazz.  Be sure to join our mailing list for upcoming shows, and connect with us on social media.  Got an event or private party you would love entertainment for?  Shows can be tailored to meet the style desired for that audience, including themed or costumed events.  Give us an opportunity to bring nostalgia, memories, and all the good vibes to your next gathering!
