Why hire The Mark Pedigo Trio?
We play straight-ahead jazz along with some original compositions. Headed by Mark Pedigo (piano) the group includes Matthew Milunksi (drums) and Nicholas Shea (double bass), all of whom have extensive jazz experience. Upon request, we can bring in sax, trumpet, guitar &/or vocals.
Mark also plays solo piano (jazz, classical) for e.g., weddings, ceremonies and cocktail hour.
We have played Robbie's House of Jazz, Hendel's Piano Bar, company dinners, wedding receptions, and other events. Mark has also played at the Sheldon, the Chesterfield Amphitheater, the Hyatt Regency downtown (formally the Adam's Mark) and various other venues with other groups.
