Came Together ...
Hat Trick formed in September of 1997 in Columbus, Ohio with
Clark Buelow, Lisa Huelskamp, and Jeff Tayama. Jeff and Lisa had
an open mic slot at BW-3’s on North High Street and Clark,
walking down High Street to be that night's feature, heard them
playing Janice Joplin. Then, when Lisa heard Clark singing
Bread, she asked Jeff to introduce them; Lisa joined Clark by
adding harmony to Jet Plane and Indigo Girls. The three hit it
off and plans were made to give it a go. Soon the trio made
their first performance together at the Open Mic night as the
feature, then Dave A.'s Halloween Party, and they began to pick
up more gigs. Regular appearances followed at Oldfield’s on
Fourth in Columbus, The Tin Goose Saloon at Port Clinton, Ohio
on Lake Erie, and Tommy Keegan's in the Brewery District,
The harmonies clicked, the repertoire grew, and
the Columbus venues have welcomed the group ever since. On
friendly notes, Jeff went on to pursue other interests in June
of 1999 sharing his talents with his covers and original pieces. By September of
that year, Tim Berridge became the third member of Hat Trick
adding new dynamics.
of 2005, Hat Trick moved into its 9th season.
With this benchmark, on the 18th of that month, Clark decided to pursue studio work
and original pieces.
September 23, 2005 -April 15 2006, local accomplished
solo artist Dave Smith performed with Lisa and Tim at La
Scala in Dublin. On our first night together the trio
performed the three hour show with no breaks- a Hat
Trick record (old record was 2 hr 35 min.) The record
was later broke on Nov. 23, 2005 at Grandview Cafe - 3
hours 11 min.! Dave performed in Clark's absence for 6
1/2 months. Thanks to Dave Smith, Hat Trick is alive and
Buelow returned in March of 2006 and the "Lisa, Clark, and Tim"
trio reunited until work took Clark to Atlanta, GA from November 26, 2006 to Feb 22,
and Tim had a duo show during that time. Clark returned,
and once again, the trio was together for fun,
good times, and great music.
Lisa got a serious concussion
on November 12, 2014 and was recovering until their first
performance on July 18, 2015 at a private party. Thanks to
Clark and Tim, the venues, and fans, the music continued
during that time. With the trio reunited, we
celebrate our 20 year
anniversary in September 2017.
As always, no show is ever
the same. There are still no set lists keeping this
fresh and spontaneous. To the venues who open their doors
and to the people, the 'Hat Trickers,' who open their
hearts and sharing their time - we are most appreciative. Thank you so much, and we'll see you at the
