The band Quanta will be performing at Posh Java in downtown Sopchoppy on Saturday, March 24, at 8pm.Bluesy, soulful, and jazzy Americana at its best, Quanta offers unique and surprising instrumental combinations of piano, sax, vocal, guitar, and percussion. Additionally, Quanta will be joined by accomplished banjo player Andy Moorer on 5-stringed banjo.
Quanta features Richard Bertram on tenor and alto sax, bass, bongos and rhythm; Jack Quine on keyboards, guitar and vocals; and Andy Moorer, an award winning sound engineer and composer, will play 5-stringed banjo.
Quanta is a small unit, with some definite energy. The three musicians performing are scientists, engineers and mathematicians in some capacity, and Quanta was the last band name left on the list after crossing all the others out.
All three musicians are seasoned performers and have played across states and at many different locations over time.
Quine, on keyboards, guitar, and vocals, is also the piano player for the Thursday Night Music Club, one of Tallahassee's two excellent big bands. He grew up playing music with his family of five siblings. His nephew Dan Auerbach is one half of the Grammy winning duo, The Black Keys. He has also played with local bluegrass bands, the Quine Brothers Band and the Bottom Dollar Boys.
Bertram, on tenor and alto sax, bongos, tambourine, and bass, also plays with the Deborah Lawson Group and played on their album Fly On. He has played saxophone with a great number of rock and funk bands in Tallahassee and in Washington D. C., where he was a post-doc at the National Institutes of Health.
Moorer is an award winning sound engineer and composer. While at the George Lucas film studio he wrote the THX Logo Theme which was presented before each feature in the more than 3500 THX theaters around the world. He won a 1999 Academy Award for his pioneering work in the design of digital signal processing and its application to audio editing for film. He lives in Alligator Point and California and loves playing five string banjo and sax.
Performing original music with multiple instrumentation, Quanta will perform their original and public domain music, spanning genres. This show will promise to entertain and impress the audience.
