LEMON CITY TRIO
Miami’s Lemon City Trio (LCT) is bringing a fresh new meaning to the word funk.
Brian Robertson, 35, on organ; Nick Tannura, 28, on guitars and Aaron Glueckauf, 27, on drums are the musicians behind the funky jazz-soul sound that makes up Lemon City Trio. They met in Miami, decided to join forces to create a band and began rehearsing at a warehouse located in the Lemon City, a neighborhood in Miami that dates back to the mid-19th Century and overlaps now with Little Haiti.
The Lemon City is said to have gotten its name from a lemon grove. The band was inspired to name themselves after the neighborhood.
At their recording studio, the trio created a new taste to the art of funk music. They honed their sound playing at local live music venues like Lagniappe House and Wynwood Yard. Over the years, the band's sound has evolved. Their new music has some rock vibes to their funk, which Robertson says is a “more of a geographical representation of the music scene in the city of Miami.” The band joined Sundial to talk about their start, their music and music venues around the city.
