Q: Good morning, I introduced myself last Friday @ Jollimons', Tricia. I reviewed upcoming venues ur playing at, alot in/near Dunedin! My ?, How did the band 'get together?' thx Tricia
A: Hey Tricia! We hope to see you again at one of our upcoming Dunedin shows! Dunedin is one of the bands favorite towns to entertain in! The bands beginning goes back 15 years, at least when you look at the bands origin in a fateful way. Tim(bass) & Andy(guitar/vocals) became friends in their the early days of grade school at Admiral Farragut Academy, Spring 1998. After graduation in 2004 Andy went off to attend College in Wooster Ohio. Tim stayed in Florida where he would graduate the next year and join local Reggae/Rock band Indica where he met and would become best of friends with Smiley(drummer). Some years passed, Indica had since disbanded due to the loss of a band member and 2011 approached. Tim and Smiley, being good friends with the band Burning Tree decided to attend Burning Tree's Cd Release Show at The Local 662. Burning Tree's bassist asked to use Tim's Peavy T-40 bass for the performance and while Tim was back stage about to hand over his bass he ran into John Gray, Andy's brother and also a musician. Tim had not seen either of the brothers for years. It was a fateful night! To make a long story a little bit shorter. John had told Andy the next day that he had ran into Tim after which Andy picked up the phone to re-connect with his friend from high school. 4 days later Tim, Andy & Smiley got together for their first ever "jam" together and a year and a half later we met you at Jolli Mons! Trigger City Trio prides itself on it's foundation of close friendship and collaboration. The band lives, works, and often plays together. There have been times when Tim and Smiley nearly went separate ways musically before meeting Andy and there were also 5 years separating Tim and Andy. Thankfully for loyal friendship and fateful meetings rewarding good deeds Trigger City Trio still grows today and each member within continues to love what they do!
