Ryan Dart Trio are purveyors of a unique brand of straight ahead jazz. Integrating sounds from latin and bebop influences, as well as more modern hard bop legends like Larry Coryell, the group's sound is pure acoustic jazz with a driving and swinging energy. Featuring concise solos and trading by young jazzmen Ryan Dart (guitar), Blake Armstrong (drums) and Sean Hicke (bass), the group displays animated and unique musical personalities true to the improvisatory spirit of America's great artform.

Bandleader and guitarist Ryan Dart hails from Ventura California, and had the pleasure of studying with many jazz greats during his time at California Institute of the Arts (Valencia, Ca), including Charlie Haden (Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane), Joe LaBarbera (Bill Evans), Alphonso Johnson (John Scofield, Wayne Shorter), and Frank Gambale (Chick Corea) to name a few.

Ryan has over a decade of experience playing wineries, restaurants, art galleries, weddings, and private events...
