Louis Pain

 
 

The King Louie Trio is the name of Louis' group that's tailored for small venues.  The group usually consists of Louis on the Nord C2 Combo Organ, Renato Caranto on sax or LaRhonda Steele on vocals, and Micah Kassell, Tyrone Hendrix, or Edwin Coleman III on drums.  (Micah also designs the group's gig posters, such as the ones below.)  The trio has also performed in a few concert settings, including a headlining slot at the 2014 Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, where they had the honor of closing the festival (see poster at bottom).
