About the Ron Retzer Trio

The trio is comprised of Ron Retzer, Jennifer Galownia and Bob Wolfe. Each person has a unique solo style voice which is fluently featured and when combined in harmony with all three members, the result is outstanding and spectacular. Along with vocal abilities and excellent harmonies of the trio, Retzer accompanies them with his impressive and tasteful piano technique. Not only that but, 21st century technology has allowed him to use synthesizers, samplers, sequencers and computers to incorporate bass guitar and drums into the overall live mix of the Ron Retzer Trio making them sound as full and as strong as a four-piece band.

Their live concerts are a mix of beautiful vocal solos, exquisite combined harmonies, impressive instrumental playing and fun filled personality quips and jabs, and make for a most pleasurable, unforgettable and inspired concert experience. A quality time that is well spent.
