About Full Trunk Trio

A unique blend of Jazz, Blues, Funk and Soul; whatever your event demands. Gentle ambience, or life of the party; vintage & contemporary.
Full Trunk Trio's profile picture
Function band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

After over a decade playing in numerous combinations, the Full Trunk Trio have always preferred to keep it small. Pursuing their own projects as individuals, this is the one group they keep coming back to. Playing together is a joy which is best shared with as many people as possible. Lean and mean, together they create a versatile sound that takes in the entire breadth of popular music new and old. Centred at straight-ahead Jazz, their repertoire branches off in all directions playing a mix of sounds that is both universal and eclectic. Expect old songs played in fresh ways, and new sounds taken back to school. Pianist Alex Crossley maintains both bass-lines with his left hand, as well as grooves/melodies with his right. This creates a sound, with just three instruments, that sounds as big as a band twice it's size. Having played hundreds of gigs together in Britain and overseas; whatever the function, they've played it. Socials, parties, weddings and funerals; their collective experience has them at home in any environment.

What an incredible evening! All of my interactions prior to the evening were prompt, very helpful and worked with me to plan the evening. On the night, they were great. Reading the room and adjusting the music to suit. When people just wanted to chat after the meal, the music and vocals were there and complimenting. Once we had people on the dance floor it stepped up. A really great experience, would book again without a shadow of a doubt and would highly recommend. Thanks for a great night!

I was looking for a band that would entertain all ages at my 'significant' birthday party and The Full Trunk Trio did just that. They played many old favourites as well as more contemporary numbers and changed the mood and tempo accordingly. The guys were really friendly and engaged the party goers throughout making sure we had the best of times. Many people complimented me on their performance and they can expect some more bookings soon. 5 stars!
