Organ Summit

with The Yards and Ken Lovern's OJT

Gaslight Gardens

Following in the footsteps of jazz jamsters like Medeski Martin & Wood, local instrumental units The Yards and Ken Lovern's Organ Jazz Trio showcase the drawbar-driven B3 organ. Lawrence's The Yards conjure mind-bending polyrhythms and tantalizing horn arrangements and fold them into a funky format reminiscent of The Meters. Lead songwriter Bradford Hoopes churns out chart-busting melodies that are nimbly interpreted by guitarist Michael Hamm, bassist Dave Shelton and drummer Kelly White. Guitarist Brian Baggett and drummer Kevin Frazee round out the OJT, which pens originals as well as tweaking covers like Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." The group recently collaborated with jazz vocalist Bukeka Shoals and was also featured in Keyboard Magazine as the "unsigned artist of the month."Ken Lovern's OJT will start at 9pm and the Yards will start a little after 11pm.
