“Wow! What a delight! Cerna alone enchanted us with his magnificent mastery and versatility on the piano, and then, with the addition of the drums and the upright bass, the Chris Cerna Trio captivated the entire audience with their jazz and blue grass renditions (and did I mention Cerna's artistry on the mandolin and guitar!) A first class performance!”
