Hailing from rainy Portland Oregon, the Pete Krebs Trio can be found performing somewhere around that town almost every night of the week -- clubs, pubs, restaurants, old man bars and gas stations -- playing their own music, a mix of hillbilly swing, gypsy jazz and tunes from the Great American Songbook. Led by guitarist and vocalist Pete Krebs, the Trio features Keith Brush on upright bass and David Langenes on guitar. Formed in 2006, the Trio has appeared nationally as well as internationally and has been featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting's 'Art Beat', KMHD's 'Home Grown Live' and both the Portland and Cathedral Park Jazz Festivals and the PDX Lindy Exchange. The band's sound is timeless, equal parts Texas roadhouse, Paris dive bar and New York's sonic landscape. A regional favorite of the NW swing-dance community, the Trio often find themselves shaking the shack for dancers and listeners alike. As they like to say, 'music for your drinking, dining and dancing pleasure...' C'mon out to a show and say howdy, we'd love to see you there!
