Bob DeVos Trio
Bob DeVos – Guitar
Kyle Koehler – Organ
Steve Johns – Drums
With long, blues drenched lines; a warm, fat sound; and a horn like approach, the brilliant guitarist Bob DeVos has been proclaimed a living jazz legend. Hear why Bob has an enthusiastic following for his innovative work, first with a Who’s Who of jazz legends both in and out of the Hammond B3 Organ genre—including Richard “Groove” Holmes/Sonny Stitt, Jimmy McGriff/Hank Crawford, and Charles Earland—and for the past twenty years as a leader. With his signature mix of groove and sophistication, Bob’s many releases on Savant/HighNote ranked in the Top Five in national airplay and were on Top CDs of the Year lists.
A Trumpets favorite, DeVos reunites with two additional masters of the organ genre: Kyle Koehler on organ and Bob’s longtime collaborator Steve Johns on drums. Together, Bob, Kyle and Steve celebrate and bring forward the soul jazz tradition. This trio attracts both jazz aficionados and lovers of other musical genres and their appeal cuts across generational lines. So, come, tell friends and be prepared for an exciting night of great music, great playing, and great joy.
