Live videos from our YouTube playlist: The ______ Quartet. All of these are single takes with no edits beyond fade in/fade out, and minimal mixing – overall level and occasional EQ.
Al Biles Quartet at the Rochester Fringe Festival, 2019
These were recorded at the Little Theatre Cafe on September 20. We had a great time and a full house. Chuck’s wife Bonnie ran the camera (and ran for cover when it fell over near the end of Turnaround).
Chuck Dye Quartet at Porch-non-Fest, 2019
These 4 videos are from a rehearsal on Chuck’s porch that was supposed to be for “Porch Fest 2019.” The Fest didn’t happen, but it was on our calendars, so we played anyway. Since it was Chuck’s gig, this is The Chuck Dye Quartet. Bonnie did the recording again. Thanks, Bonnie!
Steve Gates Quartet at Starry Nites Cafe, 2019
Three videos from a gig at Starry Nites on November 2, 2019. It’s a tight squeeze in this very intimate setting – Steve really is back there someplace! There are occasional cameos by patrons and staff (both visually and aurally), but the sound came out okay with no mixing. Bonnie once again recorded us. As always – thanks, Bonnie!
