Lemon City Trio
Thursday, May 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
Based in Miami, Lemon City Trio is a band formed out of the love for the tradition of organ trio music, perhaps best exemplified by the great New Orleans band the Meters, or reaching back further in time, Booker T and the MGs. Though rooted in tradition, this adventurous trio takes its blend of jazz, funk, and soul to entirely new places, sharing the love and the fun with their fast growing fan base.
This is an accomplished 3-piece band that sounds like four or five people, with organist Brian Robertson covering the bass with his left hand (matching and enhancing the tasty grooves of drummer Aaron Glueckhauf) while his second brain guides chords and melody with his right. Guitarist Nick Tannura also performs double duty as both a consummate rhythm maestro and tasteful improvisational soloist.
Their debut EP, Welcome to the Neighborhood, takes the listener on a journey through a wide range of textures and style. Here’s a small taste from their much wider palette of colors and styles:
