About the H3O Jazz Trio

The father and son trio H3O began performing great jazz tunes together when bassist Max Heukeshoven was only 14 years old. With older brother Hans on drums and dad Eric on the piano, they were asked to play for a private pool party and haven’t stopped since!

Eric Heukeshoven is an assistant professor of music at Saint Mary’s. 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.

H3O performs a wide variety of jazz styles. They have worked as the rhythm section for numerous area professionals including Minnesota Music Hall of Fame’s Les Fields and Dr. John Paulson.
