Why robbers are different from musicians

A duo or trio is a term used to describe a number of musicians or performers.

It should not be used in any other way.

So, “three robbers raided the garage”, not “a trio of robbers”.

Unless, of course, they accompanied their misdeed with a saxophone riff.
