PTRIODACTYL at Lorenzo's Cafe
Hailing from Salmon Arm and Vancouver, Ptriodactyl is an Electrifying Trio of Voice, Violin, and Bass, that travels 465 km to rehearse, record, and perform together. This youthful, innovative group is constantly challenging themselves in both their originals and their interpretations of jazz standards by refusing to transcribe to the traditional musical roles of their instruments. Looking to groups like Triology, The Oscar Peterson Trio, and The Jennifer Scott Trio for their inspiration, this band is a unique fusion of groove and space. With their effervescent synergy, musical interplay, and sense of humour, Ptriodactyl captivates audiences and is not one to miss.
