About
Fair Oaks Trio was formed in 2013 with Guitarist Coco Hong, Bassist Vinc Chan and Po Chan, the Drummer. They are a local Jazz Trio that plays traditional and contemporary jazz tunes with their own peculiar arrangement. Fair Oaks gets together with an intention to produce ear delighting and fairy moments to their audience.

Coco Hong started playing guitar at the age of 17. Through years of performance and teaching, he builds his own way to interpret guitar playing in different settings. Also, Hong keeps pursuing a higher standard to his playing by learning from highly rated professionals. Vinc Chan had never thought of being a full time musician until four years ago. With his appreciation to various kinds of music, he keeps exploring ways to approach and develop a creative means of bass playing. On the other side of the rhythm section, Po Chan picked up his drumsticks when he was 16 under the inspiration of Joey Jordison from Slipknot. He had studied drums in Beijing and the United States and merged the different methods into his unique playing style.
These fellows graduated and met each other in Los Angeles Music Academy. Fair Oaks was the avenue where the school is located and the Trio plays music with an objective to bring that experience and culture to the community.
According to the Webster Dictionary, Fair means pleasing to the eye or mind especially because of fresh, charming, or flawless quality.

In these two years, Fair Oaks Trio has been performing actively in different venues. They are one of the performing bands in Barter Concert 2013 and 2014. In the winter of 2013, they played with singer song writer Vincy Chan in Fullcup Cafe along with the renowned drummer Les Fong. January of 2014, the Trio hosted a show in Java Java Cafe featuring Lawrence Man on saxophone. Not only are they active locally, Fair Oaks Trio took a tour to mainland China performing in cities such as Xiamen, Macau. In addition, they were invited to IMMC as a guest performer/ lecturer in June of 2014.
