Jazz with Joyce Grant at Sam’s Chowder House

Sat. April 6th @ 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Joyce Grant, jazz singer, plays at Sam’s Chowder House at the inside bar.


Joyce Grant, singer and songwriter and lady we all should hear sing, determined at an early age that she was going to be a singer and spent her elementary and high school days performing in choir and musical theater.  She  is the great-great-niece of famed ragtime composer Scott Joplin and has written lyrics to four of his songs.  Born in Texarkana, the town where Scott Joplin was raised, Grant moved to Oakland as a child where she started singing with the North Oakland Baptist Church Youth Choir. Since that time she has earned the respect of singers and musicians alike performing professionally in San Francisco, the East Bay, Walnut Creek, Napa Valley and beyond.

Grant has been singing jazz in Bay Area venues for over 20 years. She has participated in the West Coast Ragtime Festival for several years.  City Swing started a new chapter in 2007 with jazz singer Joyce Grant.  She is the lead vocalist for City Swing, an 18 piece big band. Grant has a performance resume which includes a wide range of venues including the Empire Plush Room and Zingari Ristorante in San Francisco, the Ledson Hotel in Sonoma, Sam’s Chowder House & Cetrella in Half Moon Bay, the Sticky Rice in Fairfield, Carneros in Napa, Slates in Walnut Creek, Joe’s of Lafayette, and the Woodminster Amphitheater just to name a few.  Her unique shows consist of a blend of jazz, blues, country western, Rhythm and Blues, and funk. Her vocal interpretations range from sensitive to powerful to cheeky over a broad spectrum of charts.
