About
"The George Poe Band has a flair for infusing familiar and beloved music from the 30's through the 80's with a fresh sensibility entirely their own. Their musical virtuosity combined with a witty stage presence consistently proves to be a refreshing crowd-pleaser.

Perfect for any size venue ranging from large corporate events (George R. Brown Convention Center, Blue Bell Ice Cream, The Hobby Center, Insperity, FMC, grand openings, etc.) to more intimate settings (weddings, wine tastings, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, etc.).The fun they have is infectious; and in short order, every age young and old are won over by their musical charm.

Percussionist Lee Bigelow's disciplined but eclectic rhythms serve as an ideal backdrop to George's sophisticated, emotional blend of piano tinkling. One moment George is belting out a soulful blues vocal, and then he may shift the mood to a soft heart-felt crooner ballad. Add all of that to the soulful saxophone playing of Corey Delagraentiss, and whatever the song, the guys serve it up in a tasteful mix of danceable, singable tunes.

Incorporating a variety of styles and genres, they also offer 'instrumental-only' sets of light jazz for clients who are simply looking for the elegant ambiance of a jazzy 'audio wallpaper'.

The band is also right at home when the event calls for a more band-focused performance including vocals, and more dynamic sets for dancing within a party atmosphere.

More than just a tribute to music's most enduring songs, the trio serves homage to a bygone era of songwriting and performing. They blur the lines between the classics, blues, pop, R&B, and jazz. The George Poe Band transforms contemporary hit songs into classics while stylistic variations of song standards sound better than ever."

The Band could not have been more accommodating. We hired them on short notice and 24 hours before our event, our room venue was changed. George, Lee and Corey took what could have been an uncomfortable, awkward situation and made it work perfectly. They played to and engaged the crowd and accommodated individual requests ( as well as assisting and covering for a novice emcee!) Would definitely rehire if we get back to the Houston area and would highly recommend for your event.

These guys are outstanding! They must be Houston's best kept secret when it comes to local jazz talent. By reading other reviews we expected them to be 1st rate musicianship/professionalism, but what surprised me is how much fun they brought to our event. They found a way to include everyone. The highlight of the night was when the group took a request to play ‘Theme from New York, New York’. They hammed it up in a way that would have made Sinatra proud. We enjoyed them so much we asked them to play for us at a different venue the following night in The Woodlands and were equally pleased. They’re on our short list of top-notch entertainment. Thanks George Poe Trio!
