Welcome to the Paul Connors Organ Trio, featuring the Hammond B3 organ - the world's most unique and ubiquitous sound in jazz, r&b and soul, rock and roll, and gospel music. During the golden age of organ trio music in America, the likes of Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff and countless other masters provided a cool and soulful soundtrack to a moment in time in American culture.

The Paul Connors Organ Trio performs thoughtful reinterpretations of R&B and Soul classics from the likes of masters Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Shuggie Otis and many more which are featured on the trio's debut CD Soulphonic. The trio's live repertoire also includes a wide variety of music spanning original compositions, jazz standards, the odd-Beatles tune, and of course some down-home blues taken from the classic organ trio canon of artists such as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Larry Young, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Don Patterson.

Whether your event calls for a unique yet soulful musical backdrop or hip-shaking dance music, the Paul Connors Organ Trio delivers a flawless and performance every time - creating an event that is a memorable experience for all of your guests.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Pricing:
How much do you charge?
Prices are competitive with other local bands and orchestras. All musicians are full time professionals and live within the tri-state area. Because each event has its own requirements and personality, prices for the Paul Connors Organ Trio are developed individually.

Your price will be based on a number of factors including: size of the group (more than three musicians), location of party, production requirements, performance times, and other services. Call or [email us] anytime to discuss your event and provide an initial price quote. All musicians, travel, stage lighting and sound are generally included in our all-inclusive price unless specific logistics of an event require more attention, time and personnel.

Instrumentation:
How many members are in the Paul Connors Organ Trio?
As the name indicates, there are three members of the Paul Connors Organ Trio, however, more musicians can be added to suit the needs of any event. Most of our clients love the trio of Hammond B3 organ, guitar, and drums however, offer musical entertainment from solo piano to full dance band.
Paul works closely with each client to asses the type of event, and by listening to the needs and plans of the client, Paul offers the appropriate number of musicians and instrumentation for each stage of the event.

Requests:
Do you do requests outside of your repertoire?
Yes. We are happy to play songs outside of our repertoire for an event. We ask that a client please limit choices to 5 special requests, and that the requests please be made 1 month before the event.


Attire:
What Does your band usually wear for events?
We strongly believe that appearance and presentation is as equally important as our music. We will always defer to the client's opinion as to what would be appropriate for the event, whether it be formal wear (tuxedo/cocktail dress), or semi-formal (suit and tie/basic black), or a theme party. We will always dress appropriately for the occasion.
