Nate Lopez Trio

Nate Lopez Trio


Not just unique instrumentation, the Nate Lopez Trio features original grooves from danceable trance tribal to hip hop funk. The Nate Lopez Trio has a sound that is magnetic.


The Nate Lopez Trio brings back the CREATIVITY and sound of 60's and 70's Jazz with a modern twist.

With an 8 string guitar, a Synth Guitar and Drums, you'll hear the sounds you love in a whole new way. Nate Lopez's signature style is diverse, lyrical, and absolutely his own.

Currently Nate Lopez has been playing his custom Novax 8-string bass/guitar hybrid with his trio, playing a version of Jazz, Blues and R&B. Nate has been playing with Burjor Dastur for over ten years.

Burj brings a sound and feel that is unparalleled. With his synth guitar, fingers and mind he can sound like a flute, organ, trumpet, or Eric Clapton, and he brings a texture that not many groups have. Burjor loves playing in the Nate Lopez Trio because he gets to experiment, improvise, and play many different styles of music.

Drummer Steve Serbins keeps it all together with his spot on time and dynamic presence. Born in Chicago, Steven has played in many Bay area bands. He plays solid and has great technique.
Also,he has studied with David Garibaldi of Tower of Power. So the funk is in him and needs to escape!
