THE NIGHTWORK BAND is a high energy Classic Roots Rock & Roll bar room boogie band.
This is not a hard rock band. We do a show of covers that range from The Boss to Grand Funk, J. Geils, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Stones, even a couple of Alice Cooper rockers. Of course we can't leave out a few classics by the King. This is a very versatile band that holds a crowd all night; if not only to see what in the world we are going to do next!
It is a band geared to get people dancing and prove that disco is not the only dance music. We achieve that goal every time we perform.
THE NIGHTWORK Band was formed in 1988 by John Alfieri and Steve Meier with the goal of putting together a group of players who can cover a variety of bands and even put our own twist to some of the arrangements always respecting the integrity of the original.
The Band has changed players through the years and took a four year hiatus, regrouping with three of the original members in 2012.
- John Alfieri - Lead vocals, guitar, piano
- Tom Hunt - Drums, backup vocals
- Mr. Jo Jo Black - Lead guitar
- Dave Gryce - Bass
- Kelli Canada - Vocals (appearing at most shows)
In the short time since THE NIGHTWORK BAND reunited, we have become a house band at Fast Eddies of Fairfax VA, and also Doughertys in Stafford VA, along with other venues we have performed at such as Killroys in Springfield and Yakadoos in Fredricksburg the up coming show and soon to be a house band at Madigan's Waterfront in Occaquan VA.
We also had the privilege recently of being the first band to ever perform at Reagan National Airport
