What is a Dallas Ochoa Trio?
Not too many moons ago Dallas first teamed up with award-winning and internationally acclaimed producer Cass Anawaty (bass) to help realize and direct the sound of a 5 song EP entitled "In Tatters". Dallas, impressed by Cass' interpretation of the material, asked if he would be interested in playing bass guitar in some capacity in the future. He said "Yes!" and they both agreed that a new power trio should be formed. The next step was to find a slick angelic-voiced drummer to join the mix, and the only player that fit the bill was Jeff Bissett (drums).
Together these 3 gentleman create a diverse and perplexing blend of funk, pop, and rock. In a short time they have played some of the Pacific Northwest's premiere venues -- have been showcased on TV station NBC/KGW and 99.1FM / Portland Radio Project -- have played music festivals -- and are generating a buzz and reputation for their ear-catching original music and energetic live performances. Dallas Ochoa Trio is currently in the studio working on a new EP and looking forward to taking their music around the country in 2021.
*** Dallas Ochoa Trio is adaptable to the specific needs of a venue or event: Their normal instrument configuration includes a full drum kit and works perfectly for most all venues and stage sizes. ~ If a more intimate and stripped down performance is required a cajon/hand percussion configuration is available - and it is just as funky.
