Travis Anderson Trio

Instrumental trio of Piano/Drums/Bass

Minneapolis-based jazz trio giving a modern twist to classic jazz and pops favorites. 

Led by fleet-fingered pianist Travis Anderson, this creative ensemble will bring many smiles to your face with a familiar program of 60s’ T.V. theme music, Disney & pops/jazz standards.  

Steve Pikal, the first-call bassist of the Twin Cities, lays down a great bass line. 

Drummer Nathan Norman is a smooth and sensitive player who adds many interesting colors to the beat.
