The Soft Note Combo, founded in September 1996 by trumpeter Luis Trevino, has been entertaining audiences throughout the Tennessee Valley in music festivals, restaurants, wedding receptions, and private corporate parties. Since their debut at Cesars Italian Cafe in Madison Alabama, the band has evolved from playing jazz to a variety of music, including vocals and Latin percussion. The styles of jazz, pop, boleros, bossa novas (Brazilian jazz), guajira, and soft rock are predominantly performed in their performances. Including some originals, cover tunes performed by the Soft Note Combo include those by Herb Alpert, Santana, Duke Ellington, and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
The band performs as a quartet and occasionally as a trio utilizing the instrumentation of vocals, trumpet, electric bass, keyboard or guitar, drum kit, congas, and an assortment of Latin percussion: maracas, clave, Cuban guiro, and shakers. Although the band members are now based in the Tennessee Valley, they bring their wealth of culture and musical experiences from abroad. Coupled with the jazz roots of the other musicians, the overall presentation of the band is indeed unique.
