WE ARE THRILLED TO BE BRINGING LIVE MUSIC BACK TO PORTLAND!Soul-jazz groove-machine Delvon Lamarr Organ Trioor as it is sometimes referred to, DLO3never would have happened without years and years of crummy gigs, and Delvons staunchly supportive wife, Amy Novo.The story goes that Hammond b3 organist Delvon would regularly lug his 400-pound instrument from venue to venue barely breaking even to play other peoples music, and Amy just got tired of it. She fiercely believed in Delvons talents, and, eventually, she made an offer he couldnt refuse: If Delvon picked the musicians, she would take care of all the business surrounding it.I was watching an amazing talent being marginalized. He would be getting paid like $75 a gig and be spending $60 in gas to cart around his instrument, sometimes even renting a U-Haul. It wasnt fair, says the self-made music mogul who may be the first person to legally own a band. For years, Amy had been telling me to step out from being a sideman. This was a natural move. Now, I can just play music and not worryits been a welcome relief, Delvon says.
