Quartus brings together a unique blend of rock. Our sound oozes rock, reggae, blues, funk and jazz. Besides the creative electric guitar work, and the stellar drum and bass foundation, we add the unexpected pop of two outstanding musicians on trumpet and saxophone, and our lead singer’s vocals include amazing harmonies and lyrics. This instrumentation, along with superb song writing, contributes to an overall sound that is new, extremely original and exciting.
We have shared the stage with: The Wailers, Blue Oyster Cult, Survivor, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Los Lobos, Buddy Guy, Blessed Union of Souls, Kelly Hunt, The Yonder Mountain String Band, Corey Stevens and more.
We competed and won the Battle of Bands for the Cox Classic 2010 infamous 19th Hole event, which is an annual 4 day band event with the PGA tour sponsored golf tournament. Sponsored by Monster Energy Drink, we regularly play at the Whiskey Roadhouse, which is a prominent venue at Horseshoe Casino and headlines national acts.
We have released 4 albums to date with another album on the way.
Our musical influences include: Dave Matthews Band, Bob Marley, OAR and John Mayer.
