About the H3O jazz trio
The father and son’s trio “H3O” began performing great jazz tunes together when bassist Max Heukeshoven was only 14 years old. Older brother Hans on drums and dad Eric on the piano were asked to play for a private pool party and haven’t stopped since!
A. Eric Heukeshoven is an assistant professor of music at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Hans Heukeshoven is a 2015 graduate of Saint Mary’s with degrees in music performance and computer science. Max Heukeshoven is pursuing a degree in music industry at Saint Mary’s and plans to attend law school in 2019.
