Lemon City Trio formed as a soul jazz organ trio, and has since evolved into a band with its own sound and unique repertoire. The band hails from Miami, Fl and has made a name for itself throughout the state, and up the east coast. Ranging from edgy fusion grooves, to dreamy space Rock, and everything in between, on Postcards, LCT takes its audience on a journey from start to finish.

Lemon City is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Miami. Its name derived from the trees lining the streets that bore fruit of an exceptional sweetness. Lemon City is also the home to one of Miami-Dade County’s oldest schools, its first library and the very first Winn Dixie supermarket. These days Lemon City is considered Little Haiti and Little River (depending on who you speak to); the neighborhoods growing up in and around Lemon City proper. Sometimes carelessly overlooked by South Beach- or Churchill’s-bound nightlifers, it’s now part of a greater Miami renaissance — and an inspiration for Lemon City Trio.

When Brian Robertson met Nick Tannura and Aaron Glueckauf they had complementary musical ideas. Robertson (keyboards) had led the cerebral indie-funk band Awesome New Republic. Tannura (guitar) and Glueckauf (drums) came from the progressive soul band The Politix. All were Miami-based and found in Lemon City an apt name for their new instrumental project. After all, when the neighborhood in question can draw out the sugar in a notoriously tart fruit, why not follow the lead?

Funk is an attitude more than a style. Now, having said that: One needs style to be funky, but having style does not confer funkiness. To wit: Red Hot Chili Peppers are, technically, a funk band; Bootsy Collins is funk; James Brown, funk; and George Clinton’s atoms are 100% funk. All great genres require exacting obedience to the craft for its practitioners to know the difference.
