Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich first played together in November 2007, at a songwriter concert on Bowen Island. They and the audience enjoyed the collaboration so much that they soon embarked on more shows together. Exactly one year later, they returned to Cates Hill Chapel and recorded Live at Cates Hill: an eclectic mix of the character, voices and songwriting talents of these three unique artists.

In 2016 the trio released Tightrope Walk on Borealis Records recorded at Barney’s Bowen Island home with Shari’s daughter Julia Graff and partner James Perrella engineering. They perform whenever their busy schedules allow.

Featured on Seattle’s KEXP’s “Local Artist Spotlight” in July 2017 followed by a live performance at Upstream Music Festival broadcast by KEXP that has garnered over 5 million views, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio has captured the attention of audiences around the world. The band put out their album independently in 2016 and Colemine Records gave it a wide release in March 2018 to critical acclaim.

In 2016 the trio released Tightrope Walk on Borealis Records recorded at Barney’s Bowen Island home with Shari’s daughter Julia Graff and partner James Perrella engineering. They perform whenever their busy schedules allow.

Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Bowen Island Pub, Feb 22
Delivering an infectious blend of soul, jazz and rhythm & blues, the DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO proves to be a band on the rise. Their tantalizing grooves, lush sounds and vibrant jam sessions are always fresh with improvisations strengthened by their undeniable chemistry.

This Seattle-based organ trio, featuring Lamarr on B-3 and Jimmy James on guitar, evokes a classic instrumental sound with a pioneering, virtuosic sensibility all its own on debut LP Close But No Cigar. Featured on Seattle’s KEXP’s “Local Artist Spotlight” in July 2017 followed by a live performance at Upstream Music Festival broadcast by KEXP that has garnered over 5 million views, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio has captured the attention of audiences around the world. The band put out their album independently in 2016 and Colemine Records gave it a wide release in March 2018 to critical acclaim.
