About The Quadraphonnes

The Quadraphonnes

The Quadraphonnes sax quartet brings to the ear a tantalizing sound filled with funk grooves and soaring solos. These four women, sometimes six with bass and drums, bring to the stage a powerful and rare show with music ranging from arrangements of Tower of Power to Eric Dolphy. Not your average band! Currently they perform in clubs around Portland, as well as presenting educational concerts in local schools. The Quadraphonnes have been featured on local radio stations KMHD 89.1 and 91.5 KBOO, the Portland Jazz Festival, Mt Hood Jazz Festival, Portland International Film Festival, North American Saxophone Alliance, Portland Blues Festival, Portland Rose Festival, appeared as guests with The Lily Wilde Big Band, Candye Kane, the Mambo Queens, Felina's Arrow and Voodoo BBQ as well as being awarded the 2010 Regional Arts Commission (RAQ) Grant for Artists.

About D. Pel and Strange Attractors

D. Pel and Strange Attractors D. Pel is the messenger, mouthpiece, and fall guy for the existential thoughts and narratives of Dan Pelley. The voice of Dan Pelley croons and growls, yells and professes in a manner that belongs naturally to him, honoring his roots, intertwining old-time folk with indie rock. Songs push through solemnity with celebration, and depression with love. The Strange Attractors are a chaotic conglomeration of supportive and talented players and friends. Their accompaniment provides rich texture and compelling dynamics to D. Pel’s intimate and austere approach. The results of such woolgathering and collaborative efforts are both visionary and nostalgic.
