Two parts jazz, a dash of pop, a load of style, a helping of soul, mix in some funky blues, drop in the brass and you get something...unexpected.
Cool, Classy, and Clever: playing jazz, pop, soul, blues and breathing life into classics and standards, The Society Trio/Four is a unique collaboration of musicians who add a innovative sound to some of the world's most loved music. With the sultry vocals of Hannah Taylor, the virtuosic keys of Alix Sheppard, and the blazing trombone of Jason Holcomb they create a hip and exciting vibe wherever they perform.
