George Poe

Born in Houston, Texas, George has always been a lover of music. In grade school he learned to play the trumpet in the school band. By high school, he had joined a small jazz combo, which allowed him to refine his tonal vocabulary on pieces from Steely Dan, Chicago, and Maynard Ferguson's band. But despite his love for the solos of Ferguson, Miles Davis, and Chuck Mangione, he eventually moved his focus from trumpet to piano. In so doing, he discovered a realm of musical possibilities open up to him. This was due largely to the fact that he could play the multiple notes of chords simultaneously instead of the single tones of the trumpet.

The George Poe Trio has a flair for infusing familiar and beloved music from the `30s thru the `80s with a fresh sensibility entirely their own. Their musical virtuosity, combined with a witty stage presence, consistently proves to be a refreshing crowd pleaser.

Perfect for any size venue ranging from larger corporate events(George R. Brown Convention Center, B.P. of Texas, Administaff, grand openings, etc.) to more intimate settings (weddings,wine tastings, rehearsal dinners, etc.)
