The Rhonda Sager Trio
Classic Country to Classic Pop – Sounds for then Summer
The Rhonda Sager Trio has been wowing audiences and warming hearts throughout the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia since May, 2007.
Rhonda Sager and Doug Arthur had worked together for a number of years before Doug discovered that Rhonda could sing. Rhonda sang in choirs and plays in high school, and in church for years but had never really pursued singing out in public because she was busy raising three daughters (Renee, Randi and Rachel) with her husband, Ronald. Doug had taught himself to play guitar by ear when he was just a young boy growing up in Strasburg and had continued to play, mostly bluegrass, here and there as he gained his law degree and established his practice in Strasburg.
Once Doug discovered that Rhonda had such a beautiful, powerful, and versatile voice, the two teamed up to entertain. Their first performance together was for Strasburg’s annual Mayfest celebration in May, 2006.
The duo quickly rose in popularity and became a trio by the Spring of 2007 when Hank Zimmerman joined Arthur and Sager on keyboard. Their styles simply fit comfortably together, and soon the trio was performing at venues throughout the Shenandoah Valley; including becoming “house band” for The Old Mill restaurant and a regular at The Civil Cricket, Woodstock Café, Mimslyn Inn, The Horseshoe Curve, Mayfest, Oktoberfest, Apple Blossom Festival, and appearances on WINC, The River, and WSVG.
Rob Yeakle took over for Zimmerman in early 2009 just after the original three made their first CD together titled “Twelve by Rhonda”, filled with a combination of Arthur’s original numbers as well as some of the Trio’s favorites.
The Rhonda Sager Trio is one of the most versatile groups you’ll find here in the Valley…performing everything from Great American Songbook, Pop, Blues and more.
That style is a soft, laid-back stroll down memory lane… if you want to talk with your dinner partner at a Rhonda Sager Trio performance, you won’t have to shout.
