Jan Needle (Vocals)


Hi there!

I first discovered I could sing at the age of 12, and by 14, I was involved in amateur dramatics, and my formative years were spent learning the art of performance, voice projection and stage craft.


I have been singing professionally on and off since I was 17 (obviously not that long ago.... :-) working with various bands, covering a wide range of genres, from 50's right through to present day.


In addition, for my sins (or possibly his), I previously worked for several years with Kev our guitarist, performing in a soul band. Having gone our separate ways for some time, we are now back together and creating havoc with the rest of Cu'da Groove, who I'm not sure are really aware yet of what they have taken on!!


My strength lies in blending harmonies, showmanship, and capturing the audience to ensure everyone has a great time and enjoys our music as much as we do.


Main Influences -

Annie Lennox

Aretha Franklin

Michael Jackson

and many others, from A-ha to Frank Zappa!!
