Hello! My name is Stacy Norris. I am 16 years old and my friends call me “Groove Girl.” I started playing the drums when I was 7 years old when I got a Toys R Us toy drum set for Christmas and I’ve been drumming ever since. I come from the awesome city of Chicago which has an awesome music history with jazz, blues, hip hop, and house music. I have been blessed to have been surrounded by great music from the great festivals in my city like the Chicago Blues and Jazz festivals to the corner old time musicians on Maxwell Street. I love all genres of music, but my favorites are blues and funk. I am the drummer for the blues band The Instinct, a young energetic group which is keeping the blues alive for the next generation. My influences include Clyde Stubblefield, Buddy Rich, Sheila E., and Neil Peart. When I am not on the drums, you will find me playing field hockey or wrestling because I really do “Hit Like a Girl”. My solo is my tribute to Clyde Stubblefield, Buddy Rich, and Neil Peart. Thanks for watching!
