Congo Norvell is a band led by Kid Congo Powers and Sally Norvell. Congo Norvell formed in 1990 after Powers and Norvell met at the deathbed of a friend in Los Angeles.

Various incarnations of the band have included Jim Sclavunos, Paul Wallfisch, Brian Emrich, Kristian Hoffman (Mumps, Swinging Madisons), Mary Mullen, Joe Berardi, Keith Mitchell and Jack Martin. For 1996 tours of Europe and the U.S., the band included bassist Bill Bronson and keyboardist Hoagie Hill (both also played on the album The Dope, the Lies, the Vaseline). Singer Mark Eitzel from American Music Club was featured in duets with Norvell on 1998's Abnormals Anonymous.
