What to Expect

When hired as a featured showcase:
The Modern Chase Trio will probably be booked as a quintet with horns and play anything from classic songs from the swing era including, Glenn Miller's "Pennsylvania 6500," and Count Basie's "One O'clock Jump."
For something more lively, The Modern Chase Trio can also throw in those rippin' blues hits from Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Jimmie Hendrix.
When hired as part of a Wedding Ceremony:
The Modern Case Trio will learn any and every song that you request on your special day during your ceremony and can even continue to be background music during your reception.
The Modern Chase Trio is comprised of Hampton Roads' finest musicians on the peninsula. Collectively they have 40 years of experience as professional musicians and have performed with such icons as: Grammy Award winner Tom Scott, Olga Tan, Matt Wallace (Maynard Ferguson), Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and many others.
Individually, these three musicians have toured around the world performing for audiences in Japan, Alaska, Philippines, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and all over the US.
The difference between The Modern Chase Trio and other jazz groups is that they wont just play old jazz songs that nobody recognizes. The Modern Chase Trio plays a lot of popular songs in the jazz idiom giving your event that classy feel, but if your guests listen close enough they'll hear their favorite rock and pop songs too.
