The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio

So we’re going to be hosting The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio at the Fur Peace Ranch on August 20, 2022 and the good news for me is that I’ll be back from the Tuna/Little Feat Tour in time to experience this show. I’ve been a huge organ trio fan starting with Jimmy Smith back in the 50’s. In 1962 I bought Brother Jack McDuff’s Screamin’ on the Prestige Label. Now, Screamin’ is a quartet not a trio. It features among other people Kenny Burrell on guitar. Great record. Anyway, fast forward to the present, which is all we have… right?

As an artist who plays in a trio much of the time, I love trios. There’s no place to hide. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts and no one is dispensable. Delvonn Lamarr and his cohorts get it done big time, and we have them right here in Meigs County at our Fur Peace Station. To borrow some copy from The American Songwriter, “It’s impossible to avoid using some keywords when labeling the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio’s instrumental sound. The adjectives funk, soul, jazz, and even psychedelic, appear in almost every review tagging the three-piece’s approach. Regardless of the repetition, all are accurate descriptions trying to move the reader closer to the deep, often intense groove these guys effortlessly craft on the album and especially live.”

With a trio like this one with Delvon Lamarr, Jimmy James and Daniel Weiss you will get to hear three extraordinary cats working without a net and filling the room with funk and magic!

Don’t miss this one!

I’ll be there!

Very cool poster by Kevin Morgan!

    Yeah, lost my father 2 weeks prior to Jerry’s death; rough year. Just went to TN to visit with him and mom this weekend, been a while.
    Went to Marion, VA o visit some kin and saw the taping of Song of the Mountains – a PBS show that has run over 15 seasons, Ithink. If you every have the opportunity to catch the band Appalachian Road Show, it’s quite a high energy show to behold. m

    I haven’t lost a close friend yet, Chappy, but my best friend is my old college roomie I met in ‘72. Those old friends have a special place in our hearts, so I know you got a hole there now he’s gone. Condolences.

    I’m not sure if this this permissible or fitting for this page but I trust it is…I want to share the obit of my dear ol’ friend Bob Froncek who passed on yesterday. I met Bob in Athens in 1980 when we were freshmen at OU. We shared a love of great music and great times and were huge HT fans. As time passed, we’d get together for OU reunions with our other mates and several times at FPR. Bob, like all of us, LOVED Fur Peace and as a great cook one of his prized possessions was an FPR cutting board. Bob had two awesome daughters, Melissa and Jessica, who loved him dearly and he them! They wrote a nice tribute to their dear Dad in the obit. Fair winds and following seas to my brother!

    @Brian Doyle Saw the New Millenium Doors at West Palm Beach with Vanilla Fudge and the Yardbirds opening (Yardbirds were awesome) Ian Ashbury channeled Morrison so well it was scary good. When someone waltzed into front row during the first song, Ian stopped singing and called him out with a “You’r Late !!”
    @Greg martelli I sure do miss Wanee Tuna ruled Thursday night at the Mushroom stage

    In 2003 I bought a ticket for the New Millennium Doors at Paramount Studios at Disney World in Florida…In order to get to the theater you had to walk along a Disney fantasy land with ponds and bridges laid out in a wonderland style, with people in Goofy and Mickey Mouse costumes, lighted arcades, balloons, carnival atmosphere etc…After walking through what could only be described as the closest sober representation of an acid trip you could create, at the end of this fantasy world walk was a small theater nestled in the Disney surroundings, and still very much conducting the vibe, with “THE DOORS” on the marquee…I was bursting inside that my friends couldn’t see this because they would never believe it…The band still had it and I got standing room close to the stage…The only thing missing was Jim…

    Last saw Manzarek in the sunshine state in 2012 at Wanee on the mushroom stage with Roy Rogers and his double neck ( understated guitar player ,saw him with canned heat as well).Saturday afternoon ,light filtering through tree canopy -strange tales inside the gold mine.
    The night before Hot Tuna electric graced the same stage and rocked the joint .

    The intro to break on through probably says it all

    Saw Jorma & Hurlbut play it 10 feet from me at the Ranch a few weeks ago…

    The Organ Trio got a good groove to it…The kind of music that needs to be preserved…Manzarek also took the role of bass player in his trio…

    Cool video
    From the dynamic Curtis Mayfield .The original version of that song has sufficient percussion to make Santana stand up and take note .
    I’m confident that Mr Hurlbut is a Curtis Mayfield fan as he has put out a great version of People get Ready .

    Glad to see the Jazz Organ trio torch passed to a new generation!
    Speaking of an older generation, we were watching a Lightnin’ Hopkins performance on an old Austin City Limits tv broadcast….looks like the mid 70’s…DAMN was Po’Lightnin shooting daggers at his bass player all night…Did you ever run into Mr. Lightnin’ in the old days, Jorma? Seemed like quite the character indeed
