Bessette Quartet

Friday, August 16th @ 12:30 pm

Church Street (near City Hall) | Burlington, VT

Bessette Quartet was formed in 2012 as an experiment combining the guitar of bluegrass virtuoso Doug Perkins with the lyrical jazz sax of Eric Bessette. The rhythm section is comprised of the solid and spicy drums of Matt Davis with the “mighty bass” legend Andy Smith. Together, they mix grooving jazz, and funk with a few surprises.
