About

The Mars Trio was formed in 2004 by bass player Alejandro Arenas, drummer Mark Feinman and saxophonist Rich Van Voorst. The group began playing together for the sole purpose of exploring freedom and interaction within the acoustic jazz trio setting. Since them, the trio has found itself in high demand as an established Jazz trio in West Florida.

In August of 2007, Steve Davis stepped into the drum chair and the group took a new turn. While still keeping the original principles of the group intact, the different approach that Steve brought to the table took the group in new directions in improvisation and interaction. Following a short hiatus in 2008, the trio reformed in 2009 with drummer and composer Jose Cochez joining the group. Jose brought a fresh approach with an emphasis on spontaneity and conversation between the musicians. Upon returning from New York, Drummer Mark Feinman rejoined the group reestablishing the original members of the band which is how you fill find the group today.
