And the amazing pop/jazz harmonies of the vocal quartet, Quarter to Four, and the stories they sing, will move you to laugh and clap and maybe even get up and dance.

Quarter to Four (Q2IV) is a NYC-based vocal quartet for whom the story is the song. Fusing the styles of jazz, pop and showtunes, their influences range from Bacharach to Sondheim, Beatles to Steely Dan, Billy Joel to Elton John. Whether swaying with jazz, rocking a hard beat or teasing the pathos out of a ballad, Quarter to Four is developing a formula rarely found in the classic cabaret scene.
Q2IV Members: Liz McKendry, Jody Mullen, Erika Banks and Rick Knight, whose original compositions the group performs.
