The Golden Gate Jazz Trio is an ear-pleasing, versatile group featuring some of the Bay Area's finest musicians. Our members have played at Yoshi's, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, Biscuits & Blues, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Great American Music Hall, the Berkeley Jazzschool, Stanford University, and other classic venues. We are available to play at clubs, restaurants, weddings, corporate events, festivals, and private parties.
Our core trio consists of piano, tenor saxophone, and acoustic bass—though it can easily be expanded to include a vocalist, drummer, additional horns, or other instruments upon request.
Our styles include jazz standards, latin jazz, popular songs of the '40s and '50s, blues, cha cha, Brazilian bossa nova, soul, ragtime, and a few current hits for good measure.
Some of these photos feature additional musicians (like singers and drummers) who we booked at the clients' request.
In February 2017, wireless earbud maker Erato asked us to put together a full swing orchestra for a commercial.
We were happy to oblige. Check out the results below.
