He has also been part of the Minnesota Zephyr cabaret since 1997, and sings in Reminisce, a vocal trio (with or without accompaniment) that started as a spin-off of the Zephyr cabaret. He also sometimes performs in cabaret-style shows with Diane Brostrom.

Reeves also sings with a six-piece group (four instrumentalists and two vocalists), Sentimental Swing.

Performing gospel music, he has been a member of the Metropolitan Male Chorus of Minnesota since 1993.

Reeves also sings with the Chamberlain Big Band.

In the 70's and early 80's, Reeves spent eleven years singing in night clubs, mostly in the Twin Cities but also in New York City. You may have heard him performing with Crosswind, a five-piece jazz-lounge group, or Cloudburst, a five-piece group, at Sadie's Parlor and up and down the strip.

You might also have seen some of Reeves' earlier cabaret performances, at the Phoenix Theater, the Black Box Theater, and the Bryant Lake Bowl, including a memorable characterization of "The Autumn Reeves".
