Three things bind this quartet together: friendship, a love of jazz and funk, and a shared sense of humor. In the 2010s, Bassist Jameson Stewart, organist Ben Blanchard, drummer Patrick Dalton, and guitarist Sam Crawford formed a close personal and musical rapport working together as sidemen in various styles. It wouldn’t be long until they tried playing their own instrumental music as a quartet. Today, QuadraPeg brings joy and vitality to their compositions and improvisations, always with a solid groove, camaraderie, and a touch of the absurd.
“When the jazz, funk and progressive styles come together it can be a beautiful thing…Boston’s City of Four have been embracing this fusion for the past few years.” -Rob Duguay, Rock n’Heavy
City of Four brings an original brand of modern groove-based jazz, funk, and fusion to music venues across Boston and New England. Featuring original melody-driven compositions by its members, Mike Caudill on saxophone, Cat Tremblay on keys, Eric Falter on bass, and Steve Wilkinson on drums, City of Four’s sets include spontaneous improvisations and group interplay that make each live performance unique.
