The Doug Largent Trio is a jazz trio specializing in providing music for elegant private parties and corporate functions.

You will never pay a booking fee. Agents’ fees can add 15% to 300% extra to the price of a band. When you hire The Doug Largent Trio, you avoid these fees by dealing directly with the musicians.

You will get a signed legal contract to guarantee all of the important details of the musical performance, including arrival time, dress code, special requests.

We are full-time professional musicians who have toured worldwide and provided music for hundreds of special events.


Experience the dynamic sound of jazz organ trios from the classic Blue Note era. The Doug Largent Trio is based in Chapel Hill, NC, and features Doug Largent on organ, Brad Maiani on guitar, and a revolving cast of excellent drummers. We specialize in the music that provided the soundtrack for parties and nightclubs in the 1950′s and 60′s – classic standards, Latin rhythms, blues, funk, swing and bebop.

Organist and Chapel Hill native Doug Largent graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and then spent ten years in New York City playing at jazz clubs like The Blue Note, Cafe Carlyle, and Smalls. In 2010 Doug returned to North Carolina to form The Doug Largent Trio.

Guitarist Brad Maiani earned his PhD in musicology from UNC-Chapel Hill and has been a prolific composer and integral part of the North Carolina music scene for over twenty years.

We are always happy to answer any questions you have about our band. We look forward to playing at your event, or seeing you at one of our many shows around the Triangle.
