Out of Nowhere is a high-energy dance band of covers and originals, with influences that span swing, jazz, soul, funk, R&B, Latin, and blues. The line up is Elaine Nelson, saxophone and keyboard; Gary Yamane, or Barnaby Hazen, electric guitar; Rima Ralff, electric bass and backup vocals; Ray Vollmer, drums; and Beth Searcey, lead vocals. Together almost 2 years, the band’s goal has always been sculpting a show to make people feel good and move. As it happens, many audiences to date have found it impossible to remain seated through any given set. Along with an outlandishly eclectic repertoire, the line-up itself seemed an unlikely combo when they started.
