The Will McBride Group is a guitar/bass/percussion trio that creates their own fresh interpretations of cover material from jazz, rock, latin, pop, and funk superstars.
Imagine a funkier Steely Dan, or a jazzier John Mayer, or a more-vocal Santana, or an edgier Stevie Wonder, you get the picture. The Will McBride Group is just as comfortable doing a standard dinner jazz set as they are doing a full-on rock show, or a dance party set. In fact they specialize in events that require dinner music early in the event, then ramp up the party later in the event.
They have opened shows for:
- ZZ Top,
- Eddie Money,
- Leon Russell,
- Gregg Allman,
- Aaron Neville,
- Toad the Wet Sprocket,
- Sixpence None the Richer
