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. This program will include musical pieces that will remind us of this special time of year, such as Summertime, Sunday Afternoon and Moon and Sand.
