Meet THE BAND

The Hitmen Trio are a band who do things a little differently. And it’s this difference that sets them apart.
 
Since 2012 the Hitmen Trio have been gracing stages big and small nationwide in Ireland and abroad. 
Initially playing at small boutique weddings and parties within a few years they developed the sound to fill ballrooms and festivals. 
Roly & Romain undertook a HDIP in music in 2012, started jamming together and the blend was instantaneous, a band was set up and gigs were booked! 
Jonny, with his rare multi-instrumentalism was the obvious choice to integrate into the band to complete the Trio and it’s been full steam ahead ever since. 
Using acoustic instruments the sound created is impressively warm and dynamic, the songs and arrangements are expertly crafted and the energy emitted on the dance-floor has been the focal point of hundreds of weddings and functions to those in the know.  Get in touch to book your event.

ROLY SMYTH

Guitar, Vocals, Keyboards & Piano
Drinks reception Piano/vocals

A born performer and musician Roly loves all aspects of the music business, from the organisation of the band logistics to dealing with excited brides and grooms with the wedding planning.
Roly's versatility and professionalism come in very useful whether organising ceremony music or piano performance (yes, he plays piano at ceremonies and receptions) and his true passion for music can be seen when performing with the Hitmen Trio using his signature rhythm style guitar and vocals. He thrives on the energy and fun derived from being in a great wedding receptions band. Roly got married in October 2012 so has been through the process most couples reading this are going through now- feel free to ask him for advice (not on marriage itself, just the organisation of the party)!
Strange Fact: Roly is training for a half Ironman this year and is determined to be in the best shape of his life!

JONNY WARREN

Lead Vocals & Drums
Drinks reception guitar and vocals

Multi instrumentalist and performer Jonny Warren brings it all the table in true Hitmen style.
Jonny has a wealth of experience in weddings and functions and original music in 15 years in the business.
His versatility is crucial as his is energy and unique character for the drums and vocals. His personality is down to earth and laid back, he enjoys talking personally to each couple and is a great focal point for the Trio.
....We don't know anyone who knows more songs than Jonny!

ROMAIN PICCOLO

Lead Guitar, Bass, Vocals

I am originally from Bordeaux in France but am settled in Dublin’s fair city (be jaysus) and teach and perform music here.
I play lead acoustic guitar in the band. I have a passion for arranging songs, it’s my thing, and you will see or/and hear my invisible ‘Roman’ stamp on many a solo, lick and riff within our set. "J’adore!" our sound in the Hitmen Trio - even though we play cover songs, we choose only the good ones and the best not so good ones, and they are all so tastefully done with exotic twists and turns and unexpected mash ups.
