Dirk Quinn Band
April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join the MonDak for a special live acoustic performance by the Dirk Quinn Band on Friday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Dirk Quinn…is the guitarist for a high energy funk/jazz band based out of Philadelphia that travels extensively throughout the US and Canada. Utilizing over a decade of steady performing, Quinn has developed a unique and progressive style – one that appeals to a wide variety of music listeners with fans ranging from the jam band hippies to the jazz snobs.
Drawing inspiration from every musical genre, his solo acoustic sound has been compared to the guitar “pyrotechnics” of Keller Williams and Michael Hedges, while his full band compositions bear resemblances that range from the honest, urban funk of Soulive to the brave experimentation of Medeski, Martin and Wood. Surrounding himself with a group of extremely talented and like-minded musicians, Quinn has been playing shows across North America while receiving an ever increasing amount of media attention. His music has now been featured on over 100+ radio stations worldwide and gets regular airplay in his hometown of Philadelphia. Notable spins include the “Pick of the Day” on WXPN in Philadelphia as well as on the nationally syndicated “Keller’s Cellar” broadcast hosted by Keller Williams.
The band’s infectious energy and musical interplay routinely attract listeners that are admittedly more accustomed to lyric-based music. With great melodic sensibilities, rhythmic experimentation and an accessible modern edge, the Dirk Quinn Band is jazz/funk improvisation at its most exciting!
The Dirk Quinn Band’s acoustic performance at the MonDak is open to the public. Free will donation suggested. See the band tonight and then see them again for their full, high-energy performance at the Bakken Brew Fest on Saturday, April 20 at 7pm at the Richland County Fairgrounds Event Center, Sidney.
