LEGENDARY BAR AND GRILL
The Argus Quartet is dedicated to
reinvigorating the audience-performer
relationship through innovative concerts
and diverse repertoire:.
Jazz artist Marika Hughes has returned
to her chamber music background
with her new project, The New
String Quartet. Alongside Charlie
Burnham (violin and voice), Marvin
Sewell (guitar) and Rashaan Carter
(bass), the band sets out to celebrate
the sounds, vibrations and resonances
of acoustic, unamplifi ed, raw strings.
Rooted in the standards of the western
string quartet tradition,
Arthur Vint & Associates pays tribute
to Ennio Morricone’s iconic “Spaghetti
Western” themes, honoring the
great Italian Maestro’s 90th birthday.
Morricone’s remarkable career has
spanned seven decades; he has composed
over 500 scores for cinema and
television and is inarguably one of the
greatest fi lm composers of all time.
Josh Lawrence is a critically acclaimed
trumpeter and composer. His
ensemble includes pianist Orrin Evans,
drummer Anwar Marshall, the Curtis
Brothers, pianist Zaccai and bassist
Luques, alto saxophonist Caleb Curtis
