The Sally Davis Trio was formed out of a mutual love for playing jazz. Our repertoire is centered around the rich harmonies of the best in classic jazz. We create many textures in our music through the use of acoustic and electric piano sounds, bass, tenor and alto saxophones, flute and jazz vocals. We entertain in small clubs and hotels, as well as at large private functions such as weddings, corporate events and music festivals. We promise to bring sophistication and a swinging groove to any setting.
