SHAWN BERESFORD TRIO
The SB Trio debuted at The Fat Cat Blues Bar on April 18th, 2009. The original lineup included Mike Fardy (Bass) & long time bandmate Bruce Cooper (Drums). While the band has since seen multiple lineup changes, one of the biggest contributors to the Trio's 'drive' & unique sound is finally back in the mix ...
SBT '23 has Bruce Cooper behind the kit once again! Bruce has been playing for over 40 years, across multiple genres. For you drum enthusiasts, his biggest influences include Neil Peart, Jerry Marotta & Carmine Appice.
Rounding out the lineup & most importantly, bringing the bottom end, is John Del Rizzo on bass. John has been playing for over 30 years & he 'blames' Chris Squire, John Entwhistle & Tony Levin for all of it! :)
