ERIC BYRD TRIO

“Throughout his trio’s concert at the Kennedy Center, Eric Byrd sounded as if he were strolling through a southern town, taking in the spiritual sounds of the church house one moment and the earthy rumbleof the roadhouse the next. Rousing gospel-tinged chords and trilling blues runs are fundamental elements of Byrd’s piano style, along with the principles of swing and bop, and he used these techniques to expressive effect throughout the concert" -Mike Joyce, music journalist, Washington Post

For over 20 years, The Eric Byrd Trio (EBT), pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr., have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style. Their body of work spans seven unique studio and live recordings. On each recording, they take a rigorous, modern approach to standards as well as original compositions, playing with great acuity within the broad and rich jazz tradition.
Eric, Bhagwan, and Alphonso are educators with advanced degrees in Music History, African American Music, and Jazz Performance. Because of their immense knowledge of music, commitment to music education, and ability to teach diverse and international audiences, they have been sponsored by the Untied States Embassy as Kennedy Center/U.S. State Department Jazz Ambassadors touring South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Eastern & Western Europe, and the Middle East. The Trio has also delighted audiences across the globe at the historic Montreux Jazz Festival and in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dubai, Estonia, Honduras, Italy, Peru, Scotland, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Epitomizing Jazz as an Art Form…the Eric Byrd Trio will leave you  with the memory of a Show that captured what you believed a Jazz Show really could be. You’re only disappointment will be if you do not attend for this night of REAL JAZZ with The Eric Byrd Trio!!!  
Doors Open at 530pm for fabulous Nassau Valley Vineyards Wines, Local Craft Libations & a Lite Fare Dinner Menu!  Showtime: 7p-830p.  Tickets are Available Online or At the Door ….$25.00/person.
