Vista Organ Trio
January 22, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST
This a fantastic and fun trio featuring some of our favourite, super-talent musicians with Mark Ferguson playing organ, Alex Moxon on guitar, and Scott Latham on drums. Of course they’ll all be playing from their various homes around Ottawa. The group will play a mix of standards and originals and we promise this will be a ton of fun as all of us were constantly smiling in a recent rehearsal. Check out the trailer below.

Scott Latham is a vibraphonist, percussionist and drummer originally from Nova Scotia. In addition to being active on the local freelance and jazz scenes here in Ottawa, he performs full-time as a member of the Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces.
