Mario Palumbo-Guitar (Leader). Born and raised in Italy, Mario brings musical arrangements rich in the flavor of the Mediterranean culture: “From a very young age, one of my dreams has been to play jazz. In 1981, while performing onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, for a short time, I was very fortunate to have Rich Franks as a drummer in my band. You are bound to be inspired from a musician who has shared the stage with such notable figures as Jaco Pastorius, John Patitucci, and Herbie Hancock!

Mario has been performing around the Baltimore/Washington area for decades, including years at Sullivan's Steakhouse in Baltimore Inner Harbor, at the Sheraton in Towson, MD. and currently at Facci Wine Bar. Don't be surprised to see guest players such as Mike Pope, Alex Weber, Mikel Combs, Steve McGrath-original drummer of BnaturalJazz, performing at Facci.

Ed Hrybyk-Upright bass. Ed graduated from Baltimore School for the Arts in 2006 where he studied classical bass with Laura Ruas. He graduated from the University of the Arts in 2010 with an undergraduate degree in jazz bass performance. Ed was active in the Philadelphia music scene, performing with jazz notables such as, John Swana, Tony Micelli, and Sid Simmons. As an undergraduate Ed played in and arranged for a variety of ensembles– among them an original group under the direction of Trudy Pitts, an Electric Miles Davis band, the Soul Ensemble, and the university big band the UArts Z Band. Under the tutelage of Craig Thomas and Steve Beskrone, Ed received the Jymie Merritt Bass Award.

Ed also performs with esteemed musicians such as, Tedd Baker, Victor Provost, JS Williams, Lena Seikaly, Elijah Jamal Balbed, Seth Kibel, and Geoffrey Reecer.
