T.U. Jazz Fest Opening Night: Robi Botos Trio
$20 Advance / $25 Door

Robi Botos
Robi has been hailed as one of the most diverse multi-instrumentalists  of this generation. From the hard-bop style of Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock, to the swing of Oscar Peterson and the heartfelt melodic expression of Mulgrew Miller and Cedar Walton, Robi has managed to master the technique of his idols, all while showcasing his musical expressions in a voice that is purely his own. While Robi is known for being a strong player in the traditional jazz and funk fields, he always incorporates an element of the music he grew up listening to into his playing. Says organist, trumpeter and pianist Joey Defrancesco: “Robi is one of the most swingin’, soulful, funky, world class players I’ve ever heard, and he has a technique like you can’t believe. Definitely one of my very favorite players!!!”


Born of Romani descent in Hungary, Robi taught himself first to play drums as a young child, and got his first taste of being a professional musician working throughout Budapest. Robi was first introduced to the piano when he was 7 years old, and never looked back. He continued to perform throughout Hungary and when he turned 20, decided to move his wife and children to Canada, to further pursue the career he was born for. Now 20 years later, Robi has solidified himself as one of the most sought-after pianists in the country.

Precious Cargo

Specializing in a wide range of genres, including pop, folk, and indie jazz, the band taking inspiration from artists such as Florence and the Machine and Becca Stevens to blend creative originals music with re-imagined covers as the members each bring their own unique voice and style to the group. Cargo is excited to be performing in and around the Greater Toronto Area and eagerly look forward to sharing their sound with fellow musicians and music lovers.
