With a rhythm section, vocals, strings or horns, we jazz up anything from Miles Davis to Pharrell Williams (to name just two of our favorites), creating our own composition & style.
APQ loves a good cover, the standards from the jazz era, or a sizzling tango, but our signature sound incorporates Classical, Latin, Funk, Pop & Rock along with the best improvisational elements of Jazz & grooves from around the world.
There's nothing like gathering over a dozen prominent local musicians to perform dynamic rock orchestral repertoire, fusing genres while expanding their boundaries. This 12-piece ensemble carries energy like no other group you could book for your next festival, large-scale event, or concert series.
The late Paul O’Neill, rock producer of the band Savatage & founder of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra recognized APQH for our first public show (for the Embassy Theatre’s "Down the Line" music festival) with the gift of a TSO platinum record.
When the occasion (or budget) calls for just a couple musicians, APQ becomes AP2. That's Derek Reeves's name for our dynamic duo; he plays the electric violin while I'm on piano/vocals. Our collaborations go back to 2010, and you can find the two of us performing on the stage, in the park, and for various events & functions around Fort Wayne.
