avatar for Trifecta


Trifecta is the explosive culmination of three very talented artists, Doug Manring, DJ Jesse James Felice and Johnny Benson. When these three combine their mastery on stage it is assured to bring down the house. The heart pounding Taiko drums will be administered by Doug, a veteran musician and educator with extensive experience in Japan who sees Taiko drumming as the perfect marriage of music with martial arts. Johnny brings his unbelievable violin skills to the group. It doesn’t matter if it’s a classical aria or metal riff, he will leave you breathless. Johnny continues to push the violin to new levels for he will always be, an Entertainer. And finally, DJ Jesse James brings his highly sought after mixing skills to the group, providing a backdrop on which his fellow musicians assist him in creating a powerful, artistic vision of their music.

Jesse holds to the philosophy “The DJ is part shaman, part technician, part collector, part selector, and part musical evangelist. Doubtless he is a craftsman, his primary medium is emotion, he is never greater than his audience, his ideal is that the DJ is equal parts performer & listener” – Last Night a DJ Saved My Life.
