Skerik - Saxophonist: A founding member of Critters Buggin’. Skerik has jammed with soul legend Fred Wesley, Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters, and Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade. Jambase theorized that ‘the rotation of our planet is somehow connected with this outer space super hero.’
Stanton Moore - Drums and Polyrhythms: A founding member of the New Orleans funk band Galactic, Stanton kicked off his solo career in 1998. Moore continues to play dates globally with an ever-evolving cast of musicians including George Porter, Jr., Leo Nocentelli (of the Meters), Charlie Hunter, John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin and Wood), Donald Harrison Jr., Dr. Lonnie Smith, Dr. John and Tab Benoit to name a few.
Marco Benevento - Keys and Organ: Marco Benevento is best known as one half of the Benevento/Russo Duo along with Joe Russo. A regular on the New York City contemporary and experimental jazz scene, he has performed with countless musicians ranging from John Medeski (medeski martin & wood), Mike Gordon (phish), Trey Anasatio (phish), Eric Krasno (soulive/lettuce), Dave Dreiwitz (ween), Les Claypool, Phil Lesh (grateful dead), and others.
Mike Dillon - Percussion and Vibraphone: An original member of the eclectic Critters Buggin’, Mike has toured with Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and was described by Jambase as ‘possessed with a desire to always find something new, something deliciously rhythmic in any piece.’
“Garage A Trois skew grittier and more psychedelic with the current lineup, combining heavy-riff distortion with a rough-and-tumble funk delirium.”
The New York Times
“Insolently awesome since 1999, the instrumental quartet Garage a Trois consists of the hair-raising saxophonist Skerik, whiplash keyboardist Marco Benevento, Galactic drummer Stanton Moore, and vibraphone-whacking percussionist Mike Dillon…a brutal yet meticulously deranged blast of raw, jazz-rock power.”
“Garage a Trois is a supergroup essaying the tuneful/psychedelic side of instrumental adventure and electronic tweet.”
