Sometimes things just come together. Matt knew Lee and Dave
but not Chris. Chris knew Lee and Dave but not Matt. Lee and Dave
knew everybody. Matt needed a trombone quartet for his wife Mary's
band clinic. This was a perfect opportunity for Dave to plant the
seeds of one of his great ambitions, to start a trombone quartet.
Chris and Lee couldn't think of anything better to do at the time.
Could four busy trombonists share a quartet together without driving
each other crazy?
Well, the answer is a resounding "Yes". The Westside Trombone
Quartet has been playing together since Mary's clinic in May 2003,
and has no plans to stop. The group has been quite active, performing
at concerts, church services and the occasional private party. WTQ
plans to increase the variety and number of venues as the group
WTQ is very much a group comprised of individuals whose abilities
and and experience come together to share a common goal - to present
great music that both entertains and challenges our listeners. We're
especially happy that we are able to present some newer compositions
and arrangements which have not yet been widely heard.
Yep, we're on on Facebook. Follow along!
We were fortunate to be asked do some video recording and you can check out the performances online at babybluearts.com. Enjoy!
