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
