of Bill Parton Trio trace back to 2001 at Brighton Secondary
School (SA). Then and there William and Andy first met each
other through the special interest music scholarship
programs that they were both undertaking at the time. That
year, they plus some other scholars in their year level
formed a 7-piece Dixieland band in which William played the
Banjo funny enough! Due to various complications the
Dixieland band soon dispersed. Consequential to the
Dixieland band dissolving was the formation of a smaller
3-piece instrumental Piano trio featuring William on Piano
and Andrew on Drums.
At the time, the repertoire mainly revolved around a mix
of traditional and mainstream jazz as well as a little bit
of funk and latin. That being said, the band at the time
hardly performed and mostly just jammed.
It was this Piano trio that overtime drastically evolved to
become 'Bill Parton Trio' as we know it today.
