In 1991 he won the 1st prize at the Pacific Coast Jazz Festival in Berkeley, piano category. Since then he has performed in his own trios, as a soloist and as a companion to solo vocalists. He has also been teaching private lessons in San Francisco since 1994. Since 2001 Tilo Bunnies has returned to Germany to teach his method to jazz piano students.

World class jazz trumpet player Tom Peron (rhymes with heron) delights listeners with his warm, full-bodied tones and flawless articulation. He was inspired and encouraged by his father who played trumpet with the Sacramento Symphony for twenty-five years. Peron has performed throughout northern California for almost forty years. He opened for Stanley Clark and George Duke in Sacramento, performed with pianist Smith Dobson at Garden City in San Jose, has been a featured player at the Cotati, California Jazz Festival, and has played the Great American Music Hall and Kimball’s in San Francisco.
