Quintus

BandRock

It's not enough having both rock n' roll and jazz in the fingertips or folk on the mind. The gift is creating a tune you can feel, that a crowd remembers; improv with a tune you can whistle. In a scene given to abuse of the superlative, all Quintus needs is an audience - the music speaks for itself.

Biography

East Village band, Quintus is on the move, packing popular clubs including the Knitting Factory, Lions Den, Tribeca Rock Club, and the Bitter End, emerging as one of New York's rising groups. With influences as diverse as The Beatles, The Band, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, the Talking Heads, and Radiohead, the band keeps the crowd slightly off balance. Knowing their favorites, shouting out requests, yet never experiencing the same performance twice, Quintus fans keep coming back for another hit.

For Quintus, New York City is only the opening. The band's tour of college campuses, festivals, and venues throughout the Northeast has sparked national demand, landing Quintus on the bill with artists such as Keller Williams, Col. Bruce Hampton, Jen Durkin and the Bomb Squad, Ulu, and New Monsoon. Quintus is currently anticipating a far-reaching college tour, as well as recording new material at the legendary Electric Lady Studios for its second studio release.
