Who Is Sky West Trio?

Established in 2003, The Sky West Trio is a soul/jazz/hip-hop band in St. Louis consisting of three of the city's finest and most dedicated musicians - Travis Mattison on guitar, Chris "Luppy" Swan on keys/key bass and vocals, and Steve Lord on drums. The band offers an exciting mix of genres!  They can be the background jazz trio over in the corner providing a wonderful atmosphere.  Or they can be the center of the party playing dance hits from yesterday and today.  The band members have become pros when it comes to reading an audience and giving the people what they want!  Whether it be playing old jazz standards or Motown hits or 90's hip-hop classics or the hits of today, Sky West is committed to entertain like no other. The band has been mixing musical genres along with entertaining stage banter since 2003 and have no intention of slowing down now!

Hit Play To See The Boys In Action


Sky West Voted "Best Lounge Act" in the 2008 Riverfront Times

With set lists that can run the gamut from Radiohead to Motown to jazz standards, Sky West brings a canny blend of lighthearted novelty and musicianship — a prerequisite for any entertaining lounge act worth its salt. Chris "Luppy" Swan heads up the trio on piano and vocals and deals out an infectious, positive energy that's bookended by accessible stage banter and solid playing on the part of bandmates Travis Mattison (guitar) and Drew Weiss (drums). Catch them at Jimmy's on the Park in Clayton, the Melting Pot in the Delmar Loop or Jive & Wail in Maplewood for a reminder that music shouldn't always be taken too seriously — and that in the right context, a swing version of a Led Zeppelin tune can actually work.
