The QuadraTones / QuadraTones Quintet

The QuadraTones Quintet were born out of Ted Waterhouse & his then partner Johnny Johnson’s Love of a Big Sound and Good Time Music. With their fellow pros (Dave Block of The JumpJax on Bass & Phil Wimer on Guitar) they continued to expand their repertoire of Jump-Blues, R&B and other high energy tunes. Ace Harmonica player Kevin McCraken has replaced Jumpin' Johnny Johnson on Harp while Drummer Extraordinaire Wes Starr (formerly of Asleep at the Wheel and now with Mark Hummell and the Golden State Lone Star Blues Review) rounds out the Quintet

Check out The QuadraTones Quintet in April at The  Secret Garden just off The Bob Jones Bike path or a short walk over the green footbridge from Sycamore Spring Resort in Avila Beach where they play one or two Thursday afternoons a month beginning April 2023. Or check out /events-and-gigs for more opportunities to enjoy The QuadraTone Quintet
