The Rosenberg Trio are two guitarists and one bassistStochelo Rosenberg (soloist), Nous'che Rosenberg (rhythm guitar) and Nonnie Rosenberg (double bass) from the Netherlands. Their inspiration is Django Reinhardt, the legendary gypsy guitarist of the 1930s. The Rosenberg Trio's genre has been characterized as Jazz Manouche (Gypsy Swing).

The group's first album was Seresta in 1989. Notable events include the release in 2010 of Djangologists a DVD featuring a recording tribute to Django Reinhardt, and the 1992 live album The Rosenberg Trio: Live at the North Sea Jazz Festival, which captured the trio at an eclectic, youthful highpoint.

There is no exact date before 1989 when the Rosenberg Trio began playing under that name. Two of the Rosenbergs, Nous'che and Nonnie, are sons of Sani Rosenberg, a musician in the Dutch Gypsy community. Having been raised in a very musical family, they all were influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt.

Nous'che started playing with his cousin and buddy, Stochelo Rosenberg, when Stochelo was about 10 years old.

Nous'che and Stochelo both own Selmer guitars. Nous'che a "D-hole" and Stochelo an "oval-hole" (which was the model Django Reinhardt favoured).
