Artist / Program Description:
The Jodi Beach Trio is renowned for pleasing audiences across the country with performances combining unique and original arrangements of well-loved jazz classics with the finest contemporary works. In addition to concert and festival venues, the Jodi Beach Trio is a well-seasoned event ensemble. As one of the most sought after groups in their current territory, the trio is featured at many of the finest charitable and social events each year.
Though Jodi can bang out notes with the best of them, she has never been one to trade solos and go home. She can always be heard playing well-thought-out and rehearsed arrangements that pull your heart strings one minute, kick your dance shoes the next, and always treat you the thing she loves to do the most: sing!
The Jodi Beach Trio continues to expand its horizons, greet new audiences, excite its fans, and spread the message that jazz is alive and if you want to join in. It feels good!
