These five brilliant young musicians may have nine degrees, dozens of academic recitals, a few hundred jazz gigs and countless concerts between them, but they’ve also got style, substance, and a flair for innovation. Born in Albuquerque, NM in 2007, the quintet set up shop in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2008, where through their inventive concerts and educational programs, they’ve transcended the brass quintet box and evolved into something fresh.
The quintet recently toured North Dakota, performed as featured artist on Minnesota Public Radio and The Schubert Club, appeared with the St. Olaf Band and the Minnesota Symphonic Winds, and has performed on numerous concert series and church venues around the Twin Cities. From intimate weddings to recording horn lines in the studio for hip-hop groups, the quintet has seen it all. The members of The CSBQ also teach music lessons, play jazz in dive bars, and run a business. What’s next for this group is anyone’s guess, but chances are you won’t want to miss it!
The CSBQ performs in every style from classical to jazz, from pops to funk, from rock to latin, and so much more!
