After a 10 year hiatus, TBQ begins again with a return to the Royal Room stage. An evening of brand new tunes, improvisations, and contemplations of a peaceful future.
TBQ began performing together in 2004, crafting unique sonic landscapes by combining complex, improvisational textures with unpredictable compositional structures. Guitarist Tom Baker, drummer Greg Campbell, clarinettist Jesse Canterbury, and bassist Brian Cobb performed extensively for seven years, culminating in two albums: Look What I Found in 2007 and SAVE in 2009. Interrupted by geographical relocations, the band began a decade-long hiatus in 2011. Last year they came together to begin again, reassured by their unmitigated joy of making music together.
