Primary Instrument: Vocalist
Russell Drago Trio is a versatile, classic jazz combo in Toronto, Canada. As heard on JAZZ FM.91 (Canada's only station devoted exclusively to jazz) and in many of Toronto’s best clubs and venues, the trio features the velvety smooth stylings of vocalist Russell Drago.
The trio has recently enjoyed four consecutive appearances at the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival in beautiful Ontario wine region. There was a waiting list each year to get in to hear us! The audience was always amazing, who wouldn't want to keep going back for more?
Further ahead in 2013-14, we're excited by the invitation to appear at Jazz Café at the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts in Detroit. Jazz Café at Music Hall is an outstanding Art Deco club venue with near perfect natural acoustics. Considered one of the best rooms for jazz in the American Midwest, our gig for Jazz Café at Music Hall will be recorded and given airplay in the Detroit area.
Russell Drago Trio has seriously polished chops and setlists are always crowd pleasers. Over the past ten years we've enjoyed enthusiastic followings at regional jazz festivals and in such notable venues as University of Toronto's Hart House for the Jazz at Oscar's series.
Regular Toronto club appearances for Russell Drago Trio include the Thursday night jazz vocal series at EDO, Trane Jazz Studio, the Rivoli, Dominion on Queen Jazz & Blues and in the Jazz at the Home Smith series at the landmark Old Mill Inn.
