In the Mix


We are currently negotiating with local filmmaker Dave Ash regarding the use of treVeld music for a scene in his upcoming film Connected... Twin Cities Public Television / MN Original, MN Public Radio's Radio Heartland, KBEM's String Theory & Bluegrass Saturday Morning / Bluegrass Review, Pandora Internet Radio and many others continue to play music from our Bohemian Flats CDour second CD (untitled) is still being forged and will hopefully come fully into fruition in the near future. We're composing again, which feels great and gives me (Philip) the inspiration to bring this CD project home… thanks to those who've been cheering us on and patiently waiting for its completion!

If you like what you hear… we'd love your help in spreading the word about treVeld. In addition to food and drink venues, we also enjoy performing for concerts, festivals, weddings and private events. We greatly appreciate that the majority of our performing schedule is manifest via personal connections and referrals from those who like our music and tell others. Thank you to the many that have already helped us along this path!


If you're so inspired, Facebook is a good place to connect with us. Email and telephone are very much encouraged as well.
