The Dick Fregulia Trio with Piro Patton on Vibes

The Dick Fregulia Trio will celebrate the opening of The Back Room with Fregulia at the Steinway grand piano, Steve Webber on bass, Bill Moody on drums, and guest Piro Patton on vibraphone. The Dick Fregulia Trio has performed in a wide variety of Bay Area clubs and concert venues and has an extensive recording repertoire on the Blue Koala label. 

Dick Fregulia has been playing jazz piano gigs in the San Francisco area for half a century, as a soloist, sideman, accompanist to jazz vocalists, and leader of his own jazz combos. For 35 years he was featured Thursday nights at Washington Square Bar and Grill in San Francisco's North Beach. His early influences were Ahmad Jamal, George Shearing, and Oscar Peterson, leading to a lifelong admiration for Bill Evans as a trio pianist and Art Tatum as a solo pianist.  In recent years he has focused on expanding opportunities to perform with his piano trio and his Good Vibes Quintet/Quartet/Trio.
