Led by grand poobah Dirk Quinn on guitar, the band features Rory Flynn on bass, Scott Coulter of keyboard, and Steve Zegray on drums. The band is known for its contemporary funk jazz improvisations that have brought it over 100 plays on radio stations world-wide.

Quinn’s jazz influences range from classical jazz men like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk and Dave Brubeck to contemporary artists such as Bela Fleck, John Schofield, Almad Jamal, and Jaco Pastorius.

Saturday’s concert starts at 8 p.m., doors open at 7.30. Advance tickets are $24 KAC-C64 members, $26 non-members, and $28 at the door.
