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


Vicky Poland and Carolyn Hutton, the vocal dynamic duo of the band, have been singing in musical groups in the seacoast area for over twenty years.  Carolyn is also an accomplished musician and brings her skill on the mandolin to North River.  Taking their great vocal harmonies one step further, both Vicky and Carolyn 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!


“Dangerous” Dan Poland, has been part of the Seacoast music scene for over 30 years. He is a masterful guitar player who can play anything we throw at him. Dan not only plays with North River Band, he is currently with The Funky Divas of Gospel. He has founded and played in a number of different bands including White Lies, Forecast, and Boca Roca and The Jeannie Daniels Band. 

 Tom Kesel  bass player and multi instrumental musician relocated from NYC to seacoast NH in the 1990's. Locally Tom sits in with a variety of groups.  He was the long time bassist for the Jeannie Daniels Band and the current bass player for Third Martini as well as North River Music


Pete Leavenworth has been a staple in the seacoast music scene for decades. A lifelong musician, he lends his talents on pedal steel, dobro and banjo to many area bands including Lunch at the Dump, Mink Hills and Acoustic Radio


Possessing an eclectic understanding of percussion, Sean Haney brings a balance of talent and humility that stands out in the background and is worthy of moments in the spotlight.
