Trio Flux Celebrates CD Release at The Secret Society May 23rd with Special Guests Trio Subtonic and Mary Flower.


Trio Flux hits the stage on Thursday, May 23rd at The Secret Society Ballroom to celebrate the release of the band’s second album, a collaborative effort entitled Möbius. On the heels of the album’s successful Kickstarter funding campaign, Trio Flux will perform the record in its entirety, in addition to new material and choice selections from their first release.

Trio Flux adeptly moves through funky grooves, dark and distorted rock gestures, and twangy free-jazz improvisations with a focus on musical dialogue amongst members: Neil Mattson, guitars, Julio Appling, bass, and Adam Ochshorn, drums.

The trio will be joined in this performance by many special guests who appeared on the record, including the award-winning blues guitarist Mary Flower, tenor saxophonist Marc Hutchinson (Trixy & the Nasties, Darrell Grant’s Jazz Bridge Project), trumpeter James M. Gregg (Rubberneck, Jesus Presley, West Riding), and keyboardist Jake Savage (Oshe, Addiction Dream).

Trio Subtonic opens the night with a set of groovy soul-jazz. Trio Subtonic has made their mark on the Northwest’s independent and jazz music scenes, crafting three albums’ worth of original compositions by its family members: on keys, Galen Clark, on bass, Bill Athens, and on drums, Jesse Brooke.

The Secret Society is located at 116 NE Russell St. Portland, OR 97212. Show starts at 8:30pm, doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $9 in advance, or $12 at the door. To purchase go to or call The Secret Society 503-493-3600.

Here we go! After many weeks of preparation, we are really excited to announce the launch of our very first Kickstarter campaign. Kickstarter is a “crowd-funding” platform that connects ambitious and innovative projects to their supporters. It is really easy to get involved just follow the link, watch the video, and share with your friends and family! With this project we hope to raise the funds to complete our new CD. A of right now we have laid the foundation of work to achieve our goal of producing a studio recording of the highest quality. Most of the songs have been recorded but this is only the first step. In order to complete this CD we must start the next phase of production which includes mixing, mastering, graphic design, and duplication. Everyone involved is really excited to get back to work. With your help we can make this project come to life. Thanks for your support!


Trio Flux has been spending some time in the studio…We are currently awaiting the launch of our Kickstarter campaign to make the next Trio Flux record a reality.  Until then some pics from late August in 8-Ball Studio.
