This singularly unique jazz octet is the only one in the Bay area with this kind of unusual instrumentation. The octet performs various original standards by Steve McQuarry, Bandleader, and includes deliciously creative arrangements of jazz standards, pop music and classical favorites with woodwinds, strings and a rhythm section that includes piano, double-bass and drums.
Coupling jazz and classical musicians, this ensemble captivates its audiences with their lush sound of winds and strings punctuated by driving rhythms and improvised solos!
