After years of performing in various bands, Marna Bales, Jody Boyd and Chris Stanley decided to put a trio together that was a little different -- one that challenged every member musically, played some unexpected songs or arrangements and had some FUN. Marna had never played drums but agreed when Jody brought home a cajon and a djembe and showed her a few beats. Jody had just started playing guitar in public and was willing to try soloing. And Chris had always been a lead vocalist and wanted to work on learning and finessing vocal harmonies. The combination of talent and discovery worked! Sky Run Trio performs acoustic rock, classic rock, contemporary country and pop in their own unplugged, harmony-driven, groove-induced style.
When a full band is requested, the trio adds a bass player, and can add keyboards or a utility player, and/or an additional vocalist/percussionist depending on the situation.
