Brenda Bayne  upcoming  |  contact 

From 2006 and until they closed their doors in 2020, the Trio was featured weekly at Emiliano's Cafe, a Gainesville institution

Robert D'Amico piano

Robert is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Florida. He comes from Buffalo, New York and grew up surrounded by music. His father was a classical violinist and jazz saxophone player. His uncle Hank D'Amico was a well-known jazz clarinetist. Robert studied classical piano and was also appreciative of the Great American Songbook. He credits Brenda with insisting he debut his jazz skills in the corner of Satchel's Pizza where the Trio held fort every Thursday for over 2 years when Satchel's - another Gainesville institution - first opened.

David Glennon bass

David was born in Manhattan and raised on Long Island. He is a prolific songwriter and has produced four albums of original songs. He credits Brenda with insisting he get an acoustic bass and join her and Robert at Satchel's.

Brenda Bayne vocals/snare drum

Brenda can often be seen around town walking endless miles and petting every animal she encounters, primarily cats. She came to music late but made up for it with her love for and dedication to the Great American Songbook. She is best known for putting the song first and allowing her warm and swinging voice "to ride on top of the pulse". She recently started playing the snare so she would have something else to do besides dusting the piano during the band's solos. Brenda credits Brenda for having the good sense to ask Robert and David to play with her at Satchel's.
