North Georgia Jazz At It’s Finest!
The Trio was formed after three of North Georgia’s most accomplished jazz musicians got together for a cup of coffee and a chat. The musical chemistry was instantaneous and only one week after meeting The Trio was receiving bookings on the strength of the players reputation and abilities. And once the music started, demand skyrocketed and The Trio was on its way!
Jazz you know, songs you know and can sing along to, all professionally performed by three musicians with over 100 collective years of jazz presentation. The Trio understands the needs of the venue and the patrons, and that combined experience consistently results in an enjoyable event for all!
