Trio Valore sing a simple song, they preach a sermon of groove and carry the torch of a great legacy forward, aiming their music at the heart and the feet - a dance band in the old school style. The band released their first autonomous album "Return On The Iron Monkey" in 2008, and have already experienced a mass of media interest and a heavyweight fan base thanks to the pedigree of the musicians involved.
