The OGD Jazz Trio

Jazz, Blues, Funk and more is the short description when it comes to the O.G.D Trio (Organ, Guest and Drums). Every month they invite a different guest artist to join the core organ and drum duo. We hope you can come out and hear the music and see who is joining this month. They will be playing some OGD originals, Beatles, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Santana and some great Jazz Standards. Steve Esposito is on the Hammond Organ and Joe Lis is on Drums.
