JB3 regularly performs as a classic sax-bass-drums jazz trio, a funky trio with organ bass or a modern bassless trio with guitar. Any of these formats can be expanded to include more horns, rhythm instruments or vocalists at your request. Alternatively, you can bring it down to just duo with sax and guitar or piano for a relaxed, intimate experience.

Members of JB3 perform with Hollie Smith, The Richter City Rebels, Superbad, The Troubles and Carlos Navae among many other Wellington identities. Among the famous international names they have performed with are George Benson, Steve Smith (Journey) and Animals as Leaders.
