Trip are a instrumental guitar duo based in the south-west of England who have been playing together for over a decade.

They play a mixture of jazz standards, gypsy jazz folk and modern arrangements. The music is perfect for receptions, dinners and all kinds of occasions where a laid back ambience is required where guests can be entertained but still be able to chat.

Trip have played at the last five Chelsea Flower Shows, Hampton Court flower show, performed for corporate events at Larmer Tree and many other venues throughout the South. Trip also play regularly at Blue Fish restaurant in Portland and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River cottage in Devon.


The duo is made up of Steve Garden and Andy Taylor. Steve is approaching four decade in the music business and in that time has toured throughout Europe and been a part of many jazz based projects. He is no stranger to the recording studio and continues to produce original music as well as being in demand as a professional guitar tutor.

Andy has enjoyed a career which has taken in Pop, Rock, Gypsy Jazz & Funk. He has also toured throughout the UK and Europe and now enjoys the pared down simplicity of acoustic guitar performance.

Absolutely added to the atmosphere. Brilliant background music set for a champagne reception. Excellent communication and would easily chose them again if I was running such an event again. Would love to run an event if only for an excuse to have them again. Great and favourable comments received also from other guests at the time. Just ideal!
