    The Peter Schwendener Quartet

    The members of this group have known each other and played together for four decades. In 2011, four of them (Peter, Phil, Art, and Dan) released a jazz album entitled "Kickstand" that was critically acclaimed.

    Our music is mainstream jazz, meaning that it emphasizes melody, lyricism, and swing. Our goal is simple: to communicate musically with an audience.

    Eve's Undoing imparts a unique sound, fronted by a ukulele-toting wordsmith, with jazzy vocals, a small horn section of flute, trombone/sousaphone, and strings, percussion, and assorted other sounds. Songs can be bitingly dark and have often snarky lyrics, or may inspire bittersweet melancholia.

    Anna Soltys & the Familiar is a modern Folk Rock band with an entrancing new sound. On top of the music, her lyrical, poetic content fills the heart with an awareness of the self we could all use a little of.

    Anna’s music explores and embodies elements of pain, strength, honesty, and sorrow. From start to finish, lyrically driven simple melodies leave you with a sense of colorful melancholy.
