Mel Brown B-3 Organ Trio
Charbonneau Arts proudly welcomes the Mel Brown B3 Organ Group to Charbonneau Country Club on September 23, 2023. As the featured performer at Jazz@ Charbonneau, Mel and the band will take the stage on Saturday evening at 7pm. Seating is limited. Tickets available now.
The Mel Brown B3 Organ Group has been a sensation for a long while. It is a true all-star band, each member widely viewed as tops in the Northwest on his instrument. With a collective resume that reads like a “Who’s Who” of jazz, blues, and soul (all four members are Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductees), this group has the talent and confidence to be completely spontaneous–from their blistering solos to their improvised arrangements and segues.
“If this band appeared in New York City, they’d be a sensation, said guitar great – and one-time Mel Brown bandmate – George Benson, after hearing the Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group open for him at the 2003 Oregon Britt Festival.
No wonder they’ve thrilled audiences wherever they’ve played. Those venues have included Portland’s top jazz club, Jimmy Mak’s (every Thursday night for the entire 20-year run of that legendary jazz venue), the Jack London Revue (home to the band for the past 3 years), the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, The Britt Festival, The Mt. Hood Jazz Festival, the Rose City Festival, the Bite Of Oregon, The Port Townsend Jazz Festival, Jazz in the Valley, the Newport, OR Jazz Festival, Jazz at the Oxford, the Montavilla Jazz Festival, and many more.
