The Mark Snyder Quartet

"Playing in nearly every possible type of band from jazz, to rock, R&B, and show music for the past 30 years has given Boston area bass player Mark Snyder a pretty broad spectrum of musical experience to choose from. He draws from all of that with his band The Mark Snyder Quartet, a groovy combo of rocking guitars, drums, sax, and flute that digs deep into old standards, modern jazz classics, and funky originals..." - The Boston Globe

Karrin Allyson

It's no wonder Karrin Allyson spends so much time on the road, wowing audiences across the United States and around the world. When she sings, it's an intimate experience, as if it's just you and her. Allyson is so comfortable with the material that it always sounds spontaneous, like she's playing, having fun. And when she graces a ballad, her voice massages the melody, like an invitation to come closer and hear a secret.
