With an emphasis on spontaneity, melodic story-telling, and deep grooves, this highly-adaptable collection of musicians under the leadership of trumpeter/composer Darren Johnston is steeped in jazz traditions but finds ways to organically weave their combined musical interests into a curious new blend of roots/art/dance music that defies category.

Cocktail Hour at the de Young featuring live music by Village Road Trio

The Village Road Trio features Sascha Jacobsen, bass; Rob Reich, accordion; and Alisa Rose, violin. Rooted in classical and jazz traditions, the folkloric qualities of the musicians lead them to an extensive range of styles, including American bluegrass and old-timey music, Romanian and gypsy tunes, swing tunes and rags, favorite classical melodies, as well as originals which defy genre classification.
