About Us

In 2011 three close friends came together in Dayton, Ohio to produce voluptuous jazz and pop tunes. Blue Heron Trio is the culmination of their combined 20 years of playing in punk, pop, folk, jazz, and cover bands. Reviewed as "one of the prettiest voices in Dayton" by daytonrocks.com, vocalist Elisha Frontz leads listeners on a sensual journey through musical eras gone by, imbuing the music with a fresh, young feel. Phil Myers, formerly a musician for the United States Army, accompanies with lush saxophone riffs and gentle acoustic guitar. Dave Santucci solidifies the groove on the keyboards with his decades of piano experience. Whether it's an original song, a jazz standard made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, or a completely unexpected lounge rendition from another genre ("Sweet Child 'O Mine" by GunsNRoses is a crowd favorite), the trio performs with a deeply personal and authentic touch. In September 2013 Blue Heron Trio were finalists in "So You Think You Can Play The Schuster", an event marking the tenth anniversary of the Dayton landmark Schuster Center for the Performing Arts. In December 2014 they rose to the number one slot in the ReverbNation Jazz charts for Dayton, Ohio. In 2015 Blue Heron Trio released their first album. They can be heard regularly at restaurants, private parties, festivals, and fund raisers throughout southwest Ohio.
