My name is Stacy “Groove Girl” Norris and I am from Chicago, Il. Music has always been my refuge, source of joy, and the way that I connect with myself and others. I started playing the drums at a young age encouraged by my father. In high school, I love being part of the marching band, the jazz band, and percussion in the wind ensemble. Even though I play many different genres, my first love is the blues and I play in two blues bands. I have been able to perform in many festivals and events and be mentored by some of our great city blues men and women. I also like working on jazz because it gives me a great foundation, requires focus and helps me with technique. I enjoy participating in Hit Like A Girl because it’s always a thrill to see other female drummers do their thing! This year, I am doing a little jazz and I hope you enjoy it!
