O’s Notes: Guitarist John Schott leads The Actual Trio with bassist Dan Seamanship and John Hanes on drums. The band was likely named after The Actual Cafe in Oakland, CA where they’ve had a monthly gig since 2011! The closeness between the band members is evident in their interplay over eight original, bluesy jazz-fusion compositions. Our favorite is “Hold On Sheldon”. Their local following will enjoy the effort.
