RGTVINTAGE SWING
Royal Garden Trio
The Royal Garden Trio plays swing music reminiscent of the 1930’s, but with an ear toward the future of improvisational jazz. The partnership of Brian Delaney on guitar, Tom Bogardus on tenor guitar and clarinet, and Mike Karoub on cello is synergetic. Blending a sound of the Parisian café with the American nightclub, they manage to be fresh, original and sophisticated without being exotic. The group covers an exciting repertoire including traditional jazz, classic show tunes and gypsy-style swing. You might have heard the Royal Garden Trio's original music as the soundtrack for the DIA's recent TV commercials, "Let Yourself Go".
