Her music, whether it is an original or a cover tune, is colorful and infectious, and she is a consistent crowd pleaser.
Formed in 1992 by founding members Ken Clark and Mike Mele, the Ken Clark Organ Trio has been continually captivating New England audiences night after night. “Ken Clark controls the B3 like a master: hip bass lines, sizzling chordal washes, feel-good riffs, funky blues lines and syncopated accents figure in the mix.” -Owen Cordle, Jazz Times.
