The Knight Stage

Becky Boyd has been playing the Cleveland club scene for over 40 years. Her vocals are outstanding, combining great tone, with tremendous feel. Besides singing with many bands throughout the years, Becky has opened for such noted artists as The Outlaws, Brownsville Station, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Fairport Convention, Marshall Tucker, Buddy Miles, Robert Lockwood Jr., Billy Branch, Chad & Jeremy, Walter Trout, and did a small tour opening for Todd Rundgren.

Becky has been nominated several times as best vocalist in the Freetimes and Scene magazines. Becky received best vocalist award from the Cleveland Blues Society. Read some accolades written about Becky:
"Becky Boyd, a singer of such strength, she could make a lot of "No Girls Allowed" signs get ripped off the clubhouse doors... She possesses a powerful blues/jazz voice that’s forceful, sensuous and as clear as spring water. She has got the art of scat singing down cold. Becky Boyd is a local talent to watch." --- Steve Byrne, Scene Magazine "Becky Boyd is a local pro, who makes the magic happen." --- Harmonica Blue, Strange Brew Magazine

Becky Boyd & The Groove Train consists of Boyd on vocals, Jim Wall on drums, Alfredo Guerrieri on bass, and Chris Hanna on keyboards, all seasoned, veteran players.

Together, they put on a great show not to be missed, complete with their own versions of classic covers and originals.
