Patrick Greene Trio

A native of St. Louis, guitarist/composer Patrick Greene moved to the Bay Area in the early 1990s. Before that, he was active in the music scenes of St. Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Not long after arriving in the Bay, he began a three year period of performing with Bishop Norman Williams and BJ Papa. During this time he received his Bachelorís of Arts in Music and Jazz Performance from Sonoma State University. He has studied with Randy Vincent, Sid Jacobs, and Anthony Peterson.

His first CD features Eddie Marshall on drums and Jeff Pittson on organ. He was a member of 8 piece Funk band Swoop Unit, playing venues and festivals across Northern California for 17 years.

He has studied and played a broad range of guitar styles, including Funk, R&B, Reggae and West African. However, Jazz continues to be his biggest muse. He teaches guitar privately and has been on the faculty of the Community Music Center since 2001.

Hammond organist Kevin Gerzevitz is a professional musician, composer and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He frequently performs as jazz organist with B3B4 Organ Jazz Quartet and The Patrick Greene Trio, and as pianist with The KG Trio.

Kevin is from Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was a student at the University of Michigan School of Music and studied piano performance, jazz studies, improvisation, and composition. Upon completing a BMA degree in 1990 with a major in Music Theory and German, he relocated to San Francisco where he has since worked as a freelance pianist, organist, accordionist, composer and teacher.

Kevin has scored several independent films and has produced music for advertising, web, multimedia and musical theater.

Bay Area drummer Michael Reed began drumming at a young age, and has worked consistently in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York since the 1990s.

Reedís deep roots in soul and jazz informs regular recordings for Lugnut Brand Records (Pittsburg), CB Records (SF), and Funk Night Records (Detroit), and his self-produced drumbreaks have become highly sought after by hip hop and electronic producers.

Reed regularly performs with Secret Sidewalk, Andre Cruz and Chris Lujan, The Grease Traps, and the Patrick Greene Trio.
