The Eugene Portman Trio was formed in 2004 and has performed extensively in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, London and throughout UK. Eugene Portman was already firmly established as a jazz pianist and was touring extensively with the wonderful jazz vocalist Alice Harvey. He was also appearing up and down both in jazz bands and as a solo pianist. Having been requested on numerous occasions to put a trio or a jazz band together for various events he eventually began to use the same musicians nearly all the time. So the Eugene Portman Trio was formed and consists of Eugene Portman from Lingfield, Surrey (on piano); Roy Jackson from Andover, Sussex on drums and Mike Porter-Ward from Faversham, Kent on bass. More recently the trio have been performing with the fabulous jazz and swing singer Sheila Daniels and the superb rat pack style singer Steve Conway.
