    A native of Beverly, MA, John Hyde has been playing piano since he was a child. At Berklee College of Music, he majored in composition while studying classical piano under Ed Bedner. After graduating from Berklee, he was swayed by jazz and studied under Charlie Banacas and Paul Schmeling. John has performed with a multitude of bands as well as doing solo work, spanning many genres of music including Jazz, R&B, Blues, Cabaret and Classical/Liturgical Music. 

    Sharon Jones is a legendary performer and native of Portsmouth, NH, where she shines as an original stand-out of the Seacoast music scene, with engagements throughout New England, in Boston and in New York.

Her passion for performance radiates, and her expressiveness embraces her audiences. Ending Sharon's concerts is a challenge as the audience begs for more! There is mutual delight for Sharon and her longtime followers when she performs for NH Seacoast audiences.
