Trinidelphia has been pleasing audiences with their distinct combination of American and Caribbean styles since 2005. Fusing Trinidadian Soca and Calypso with Latin Jazz, Reggae, Salsa, Ska and American top-40, they have developed a sound all their own over the past decade. Their unique and rhythmic arrangements of jazz and popular songs cast the steelpan in fresh new light, pushing the stylistic and artistic boundaries of an often type-cast instrument. Steel Pannist/Trumpeter Chris Aschman, Lead Vocalist/Guitarist Shawn Hennessey, Bassist Ian Rafalak, and Drummer Joe Truglio each bring their own unique "voice" to help add to the ensemble's unique chemistry. As freelance musicians in their own right, they have performed with alongside the likes of Dionne Warwick, Paquito D'Rivera, Chaka Khan, Bill Withers, Stanley Clarke, The Disco Biscuits, Teena Marie, Joe Piscopo, Jeffry Iqbar, Andy Narell, The O'Jays, Wayne Brady, Justin Guarani, and Melody Gardot, and at venues ranging from Philadelphia's Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center, the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York, The National Cathedral in D.C, the Hilton in Shanghai China, and the Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain Trinidad.

Trinidelphia has performed at a wide variety of functions including multi-cultural festivals, community concerts, wedding receptions, cocktail hours, casino events, backyard parties, birthdays, school assemblies, and parades.
