Robin Connell Trio
Robin’s classic jazz piano trio [piano, bass, drums] performs regularly in venues all across Michigan as an instrumental trio or with Robin’s soft jazzy vocals added. With harmonic sophistication at the piano, and a tinge of haunting introspection, she sings and “tells the story” with the depth that comes from true-life experience. Best in an intimate or cozy setting, Robin draws the audience into an ‘at home feeling,’ indeed, as if performing for you in her own living room. ​

Robin & Paul Duo/Quartet
Robin and Paul delight in sharing their love of classic jazz with audiences near and far. Likened to Diana Krall and Chet Baker, their very personal approach features original arrangements of time-honored standards drawn from The Great American Songbook (Porter, Gershwin, Berlin, Ellington), notable swinging classics by jazz greats (such as Clark Terry, Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis), and original compositions that get audiences smiling and tapping their toes.
