Each member definitely adds their own element to the full bodied sound of this talented and innovative collective of players. They are young, refreshing, talented and passionate and all without ego…their love, dedication and seriousness for their music emanates through their eclectic presentation. Their performance is captivating, stirring a blend of Traditional, Classical and Original Pieces. Their attentiveness to each other is apparent as they listen and speak through their music enabling them to interact and lead into improvisational works.
Although young in years their musicianship is that of old souls and their professionalism is that representative of old school rules. Their entire persona is of a professional nature, respectful of establishment rules and requests, timely, conscientious of their audience and sharp looking in dress attire.

Speaking to the contemporary styles of today, the Zach Bartholomew Trio aims at continuing traditions while putting their own stamp on the sound they have come to love...Anyone looking for some authentic jazz should check out these cool cats from Seminole country at a local venue around town.

The gentlemen of The Zach Bartholomew Trio were a pleasure to work with; professional, charming and extremely talented. I’m looking forward to working with them again in the near future. I highly recommend The Zach Bartholomew Trio for any event you may be hosting.

The Zach Bartholomew Trio was spectacular and set a light and lively tone for the event. After hearing them play, I have booked the Zach Bartholomew Trio for two upcoming events for the University and have recommended them to others. They play a large range of musical styles which would make me comfortable booking them for a variety of events: from a corporate lunch to black tie galas. I highly recommend hiring this talented group of musicians for your event.
