"We're creating a sound that is immensely listenable, honest and imaginative."


The Kim Brooks Trio is a jazz band based in Santa Barbara. We play at restaurants, bars, private parties, weddings and festivals in the Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez and Ventura areas. The foundation of our music is the trio, and the spontaneity and interplay that is fundamental to jazz and working together for many years. Upon this foundation, we play a mix of swing and Latin standards, funk, blues, contemporary jazz and originals. Frequently we will play "Trio+1" adding one of Santa Barbara's excellent saxophonists, guitarists or singers to further compliment the sound. Our goal is to have fun with the music and make every performance unique and exciting for the listener.

Please take a moment to check out the "About" page, listen to our "Music" samples and our next play dates on the KBT Jazz Calendar below. Don't hesitate to Contact us for any questions about our music or to book your next event. We look forward to hearing from you.
