Band Bio

North River began as a trio in 2008.  New Hampshire seacoast area musicians Dan, Vicky and Dianne played a 'one time' benefit show together and had so much fun they have been playing their version of Pop, Folk and Soul covers at venues in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine ever since.   The group plays out as a Duo or Trio and brings along a full band for events when needed.


Vicky Poland and Dianne McMillen, the vocal dynamic duo of the band, have been singing together since 2005. They began making music together in the a capella group Vocal Exchange.  Taking their great vocal harmonies one step further, both Vicky and Dianne lend their singing talent to the Funky Divas of Gospel. Whether it's Folk, Rock, Country or Gospel music, if you give us a mic we'll sing you a song!
