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 will release their first autonomous album 'Return of the Iron Monkey' in October, and will be touring earlier in the year to promote the release.
