“A little jazz, a little blues, with a whole lotta soul.” That is the mantra of Penticton-based trio, SO_CO.
Formed in 2022, the band has shaped its music to reflect the collective influences of each band member: guitarist Robert Johnson’s stylish Latin jazz/Southern blues guitar work, the jazz/rock-fusion playing of bassist Frank Artés and the percussive dexterity of drummer Rod Rose.
Over the years they have individually been part of numerous music projects, both large and small, covering a variety of genres from blues to funk, jazz to big band, and beyond. In addition, both Robert and Frank have been part of the legendary Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne band at various times.
They play a wide-ranging mix of instrumentals and vocal tunes comprised of old-style blues from Ray Charles to Willie Dixon, Latin-inspired original compositions influenced by Carlos Jobim, some funky jazz standards and even a little Chuck Berry.
Appearing with SO_CO at the Dream Café will be saxophonist Stephen Buck, who is one of the featured performers on their CD “Eclectic Avenue”, which the trio recorded at Arc House Studios in Kelowna last year. They will be playing cuts from this album as part of the show.
