Ways To Subscribe

The Laurence Hobgood Trio will be performing on Sunday, May 28, 2023, at 5pm at the Sound Conservatory in Rock Island, IL.

Featuring Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist Laurence Hobgood, bassist Matt Clohesy, and drummer Jared Schonig, this performance is one not to miss, thanks to the non-profit cultural arts advocate, Polyrhythms.

Laurence Hobgood has been described by Jazz Times as “one of the finest pianists out there. Period.”

Listen to the conversation here with composer, arranger, producer, Yamaha artist, and piano virtuoso Laurence Hobgood about his initial emergence onto the jazz scene in Chicago years ago, the inspiration behind his album Honor Thy Fathers, and about his current work teaching at the New School in NYC.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here or at the door. The Sound Conservatory is located at 1600 2nd Ave, Rock Island. Doors open at 4pm. For additional information, you can contact Polyrhythms at (309) 373-0790.
