Artist of the day: The Killer B3 Band
The Killer B3 Band is a collection of well-known musicians in the Tampa Bay area who, truth be told, aren’t really a band at all.
Shawn Brown (organ), Nate Najar (guitar), Jeremy Carter (sax) and Kenny Suarez (drums) are performing as the Killer B3 Band in support of a documentary called Killer B3. Filmmakers Joe Bamford and Murv Seymour have been working on the doc for about seven years, and are gearing up for a January release, provided they can earn enough cash to cover the costs. That’s where the Killer B3 Band comes in — on Tuesday night, they’ll be performing at a Kickstarter kickoff concert at Skipper’s Smokehouse. Admission is $10. Click here for details.
The film Killer B3 is all about the iconic Hammond B3 organ and the jazz and blues musicians who play it, including Brown. Check out the trailer above, and click here to learn more about the film.
