RiverBugs formed in 2017 when Jazz singer Janine Andrews, who moved to Australia a few years ago after growing up in France and singing professionally in Paris, came across local South West legend Scott Wise.
Scott (guitar) was playing his regular spot at the Margaret River Farmers market when Janine suggested they get together and try a few songs.
Scott called in the swinging jazz veteran Mr Viv Booker on double bass and after a few rehearsals the RiverBugs were born. About a year passed and it was time to call for the doctor; Doctor Louise Marsh is the jazziest doc in town ripping up the Tenor Saxophone bringing the threesome to an awesome foursome!
The four players bring influences from years of experience in different genres but concentrate their efforts on jazz standards, swing, R’n’B and some Latin classics.
