What to Expect
The Carol Griffin Trio offers a professional performance for every occasion. Whether it's an intimate setting or a large corporate affair; black tie or business casual; for a few hours or for a full day event, we'll provide you and your guests with the musical entertainment you'll enjoy. Ballads, Up Tempo, Standards, instrumentals...we've got you covered.
We provide our own equipment (instruments, mics, cables, stands, etc.). If you have a preference for a particular song or style of music, let us know.
Bill, Dave and I formed the trio a few years ago out of our love for Jazz standards and music in general. While we love Jazz, we also perform Motown hits and completed a very successful sold out fund raiser for a church in Staten Island. Dave has his Doctorate in music and Bill is a former English teacher. Both have been performing professionally for decades. I've performed in local stage musicals in Staten Island, weddings, corporate events and other special occasions.
