Band Members:

The Caribbean Club Trio is comprised of Zach Preston, Laura Varela, and Will Preston.
This trio embodies the unique musical essence of the Caribbean, featuring rhythms and music from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Brazil and even the occasional Jamaican reggae. It’s an old world flavor in a new package, re-imagined into a trio format, instead of a ten piece band. The band of extremely talented, multitasking musicians create a unique performance experience, with everything you hear live off the floor. The trio plays 7 days a week throughout Southern Ontario during the summer months.

The group is very excited to present their new CD at this year’s Niagara Jazz events. Entitled “GRAN VIA TROPICAL,” it was recorded in Mexico City, and features 8 original tunes which fuse groovy Afro-Caribbean rhythms with catchy choruses to make a Latin Jazz masterpiece.

With fiery guitar, deep soulful bass, driving percussion, and passionate vocals, this music will take you on a tropical journey! So strap in, because we’re going to the Caribbean!
