A common love for the great power trios in Rock is what brought three of Vancouver‘s top musicians together to form the band trio.
Formed in 2017, Billy Mendoza (bass, vocals), Andreas Schuld (guitars), and Phil Robertson (drums, percussion) set out to pay tribute to some of their greatest influences, including Jimi Hendrix, Cream and the Police. Having been friends for more than 3 decades, the three have worked together in a great variety of musical situations – recording sessions, concerts, musicals, award shows, as well as five years with the popular band “Steelin’ in the Years.”
Currently trio performs it’s popular show “trio plays The Police” – a 90 minute show featuring all of the hits that made The Police the biggest band in the 1980s. Much more than an imitation act, trio’s tribute to the Police not only captures the essence of the British band’s sound, but also embodies the improvisational instincts and raw energy the band was known for all over the world.
