Trio features Mike Turk performing on "Chromatic" harmonica. This is not the commonly played diatonic harmonica used in "blues bands & folk music". The Jazz music played on chromatic Harmonica brings it to a completely different and higher level of music appreciation. We traditionally include jazz guitar gently amplified & acoustic or "double" bass for the trio; A pianist is hired in place of guitar if the venue owns a suitable piano or a quality electronic keyboard can be used as well. Full jazz Drum kit is often added to make a Quartet for complete concert sound.

This group has traveled and performed throughout the Boston and New England region at many concerts, clubs and private venues & Events. i.e. Regattabar, Sculler's Jazz club, Jocko's Jazz At The Sahara, Ryle's Jazz Club, The Lillypad, Natick Center For The Arts. Also, many fine restaurants that have presented jazz music; ex. Thelonious Monkfish, Savino's, The Beehive, The Beat Hotel, Maison Robert, L' Espalier, Bullfinch Restaurant. Private Venue references avaialble on request.

Mike Turk is also a recording artist with a number of CD releases and guest/sideman appearances over the last 20 years lending his unique Harmonica sound.
