The Shawn Pfaffman Organ Trio

Shawn Pfaffman Organ Trio (SPOT) cooks up Southern Soul, Funk and Jazz whisked together to create a mouth-watering plate of tasty down home goodness. Main course includes soulful originals with a side of reimagined ear candy from greats like Stevie Wonder and Thelonius Monk.

“If you’re looking for a show with energy, tons of heart and instrumental licks that might melt your face, then SPOT is for you.  I found myself getting lost in the completely unique arrangements in the best way possible…as if it was the first time I had ever heard these familiar songs.  I didn’t want it to end.”
