Latin Jazz - New Orleans - Funk - Hip Hop - Bossa Trio (now also avail as Quintet)

Black Market Trio is San Luis Obispo County's Premiere Latin Jazz and New Orleans jazz band who performs in both Trio and Quintet formats, depending upon need. Black Market Trio is performing for live music events throughout the United States and is expanding our reach with a CALI to NOLA tour in 2019. The band performed in DESTINATION WEDDING a feature film starring Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves, released August 31, 2018 and is selling out venues across the Central Coast on a frequent basis. Click on some of the videos below to get an idea what we do when we have special guests, as well as the trio, such as our show at Hearst Castle where we performed for a VIP party where each person paid $1,000 to attend - they loved us and book us back every year. Book Black Market Trio for YOUR special event today.

New Shows Added! 

After an incredible VIP party for the SLO IFF we took a short break.

We've been back and stronger than ever since Summer started.

We're performing a number of shows this Summer - more being added daily! DOAU WINERY sports majestic views of the mountains and Paso Robles Valley.

First, we played a couple of PRIVATE PARTIES the past couple of weeks, including the party for French Hospital's big fundraising kick-off party at DAOU WINERY, followed by a special party for the sommolier's taking a workshop at DAOU WINERY. Both shows were a big hit! 

We'll be performing tomorrow, June 15 at THE VILLAGES in San Luis Obispo. We love performing for seniors, so that should be fun! That show is at 3PM.

We've added a number of additional shows, including Latin Fever at Cottonwood Canyon Winery on June 29. We also have a birthday party, wedding, and some exciting news is coming soon! We can't announce what is coming just yet, but you may have noticed we've added movies to our list of events.

Join us today at Biddle Ranch Winery! 

We celebrate Biddle Ranch Winery's Anniversary today! Come join the fun! 

We're celebrating Biddle Ranch Winery's 1 year at our new location with live music by Black Market Trio, food, and of course, wine! Stop by our tasting room for a BBQ with the Biddle Ranch partners and their families. We will be offering our Sparkling by the glass (cheers-ing encouraged) and Black Market Trio will be providing the music! 

Free entry includes food, and wine will be available for purchase by the glass or the bottle. Wine Club Members may take an extra 5% off all bottle purchases. Please RSVP on our website! 

Note that all tastings will finish at 4pm for the event.

Lots of shows in October!

Fun times this weekend!

with Scott Andrews leading the charge on sax and percussion.

Also, Sunday, we perform at Edna Valley Winery.

Fun shows dialed up in August 

We have some super fun shows dialed up for August including tonight's "Tequila Party 2 - ReDux" - private party. 

You get a feel for how Tequila party I went by this photo:

We celebrated in style and sent Paul off to the military in good fashion (notice Paul's SLO Jazz Fest Sweatshirt?) and also celebrated Paul's birthday.

Tonight, another of the Lynes gang returns from the Middle East and we'll welcome him back with Tri-Tip, Lompoc style, and other potluck, tequila, and cerveza. Yes, it will be a fun night!

Later in the month, we're going to open for the Symphony's special show August 20 at Vina Robles. While the Symphony starts at 7PM, we'll warm you up from 5:30PM - 7PM on the special club apron, and possibly between sets, as well.

We return to Court Street, one of our favorite venues, on August 26:


We'll be performing by the elevator across from Sephora and Pottery Barn. Take in a little shopping, get a pizza slice or two from Guiseppe's, coffee from Peet's, candy from the shop downstairs, and your hot Latin Licks with Black Market Trio! 

Maybe we'll even get a little Babalu in the action! LOL... 

As you know, Edna Valley is quite spectacular.

Make sure to bring your friends out to these and more shows this month - we'll probably be adding a LEO BIRTHDAY BASH as well as soon as Scott figures out a suitable venue. Cheers - and Happy Fire Sign August month!  

With an unusual instrumentation of sax, congas/bongo kit, and bass, Black Market Trio covers a range of material from Ellington (Harlem Nocturne, In A Sentimental Mood), cool jazz of the 50's (Eighty-One, Tom Thumb) through Exotica & Bossa Nova (Lust, Girl From Ipanema, Desafinado, Corcovado, Mas Que Nada, etc.) and cocktail era (Fever, The Look of Love), and more recently have covered the Mambo craze (Tito Puente) and Boogaloo (Joe Loco) to the present, with their own original funk jazz songs (Lizard People, Give Some to Get Some).

Black Market Trio plays clubs, shows, festivals, and parties from Santa Maria and Orcutt through Nipomo, Arroyo Grande Valley, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Avila, San Luis Obispo, Templeton, Atascadero, and Paso Robles. Make sure to read our "About Black Market Trio" for a more sizzlin' description of what this trio is all about. On our home page, we post recent flyers and blog post events and happenings from shows. Enjoy!
