Ev Hadden Trio delivers soulful, sensual blues and jazz at a comfortable volume. Our vocals-dominated style brings to mind Eva Cassidy, Billie Holiday, and Marcia Ball. We perform a mix of old singles from the Chess and Alligator labels (many reinterpreted for a modern female point of view), Cajun and swamp blues, and swing jazz, with a sprinkling of originals and instrumentals.
We generate a classy, adult vibe that works well for a happy hour, a relaxed mixer, or a sit-down show. We can supply our own sound system and are well suited for a variety of venues from coffeehouse/wine bar to hotel lounge/restaurant to outdoor patio/park.
We are reliable professionals, and we take seriously our job of providing the music that will make your event enjoyable and memorable.
Evelyn Hadden – piano and vocals
George D. Hadden – bass
Jesse Andrews – trumpet and flugelhorn
Ev Hadden Trio was formed in 2005 in the Minneapolis area, where Ev and George Hadden teamed up with electric guitarist Jon Hoffman to perform at local wineries, coffee shops, and restaurants, as well as private parties and corporate events.
The Haddens relocated to Boise in 2013, and they invited horn player Jesse Andrews (of The Flavors) to join them in the reformed Ev Hadden Trio.
