Over the last ten years Péter Sárik Trio has become one of the most famous and most significant jazz bands in Hungary. The secret of their success is the fact that all three members are very open minded and multitalented musicians and due to this they can reach a much wider audience compared to other jazz bands. The atmosphere of their concerts resembles a pop or rock concert even when they play at the Music Academy. Due to their honesty and energy, the band attracts many new fans of the genre.
