Four Piece Suit/Fran McConville Trio with special guest Christina Lacoste

Loading Events
Four Piece Suit, Fran McConville and Christina Lacoste converge for a show at the Lizard Lounge!

Four Piece Suit is “a highball of sea-foam-soaked guitar and squalling tenor sax, shaken—not stirred—with surf tangos, Battista-era mambos, beach blanket boppers, spy music, crime jazz, and movie themes.” The predominantly instrumental group brings humor, romance and a pulsing rhythm to the category-defying range musical styles they reinvent. Heard on soundtracks for Sex and the City and Dexter, Four Piece Suit puts on a sizzling live show.

The band is: Milt Reder on guitar, John Aruda on sax, Dean Cassell on bass and Seth Pappas on drums. For more on 4PS, please visit Truly beyond category, their eclectic instrumental, sometimes jazz, sometimes rock style, brings forth a unique blend of long forgotten musical influences and often suggests a certain film noir feeling.

The sexy, sophisticated, yet tongue-in-cheek music of FOUR PIECE SUIT is frequently featured on the highly acclaimed HBO series Sex and the City, Telemundo, NBC’s Ed, Dexter on CBS, and cable shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians, America’s Top Model, Run’s House, and many others. Film work includes Our Lips are Sealed (Olsen Twins), In the Weeds (Molly Ringwald), Stag (HBO films), Psycho Beach Party, Along Came Polly (Jennifer Aniston), and others.

The band has also been heard in many independent films, including Sundance Festival Winner Blue Vinyl. They have also done a full score for an HBO claymation film, Real Men Wear Hawaiian Shirts, an award winner at the San Francisco Film Festival.

Like many of the greatest bands, only at a live show can one really “get” what FOUR PIECE SUIT is all about…

The Fran McConville Trio plays an eclectic, cosmic blend of instrumental rock, groove & reggae music. We like to get weird and play in odd time signatures, go to outer space, and come back again. Members of the FMT have played with Lions At The Gate, Lady Lupine, Ethan Rossiter Band, Sonya Rae Taylor, and others!

Some artists that have had a big influence are The Beatles, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, John Scofield, Jeff Beck, Jerry Garcia, Bela Fleck, & MMW.
