The Honeymoon Trio play songs and tunes from that vintage era that followed the 1920's through to the start of the second world war. Songs and tunes from the cafe bars and dance halls of 1930's Europe including many of the Great American Song Book classics of the time, some of which have been made popular more recently in television and advertising.
