Forq is an instrumental quartet with an aggressive sound and a penchant for sonic exploration. This all-star band based in New York has just completed their third album — Thrēq — released on August 4, 2017. Originally founded by keyboardist Henry Hey (David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Jeff «Tain» Watts) and bassist Michael League (Grammy-winning founder of Snarky Puppy), Forq is joined by guitarist Chris McQueen (Snarky Puppy, Foe Destroyer, Bokanté) and drummer Jason «JT» Thomas (Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Marcus Miller, D’Angelo). Their group sound draws from various musical paths of it’s members. Henry Hey is the keyboardist and co-leader of groundbreaking instrumental quartet, Rudder, and some of that sound can be heard in the music of Forq. Drummer Jason Thomas has a musical history rich in authentic Texas blues and swampy funk. Guitarist Chris McQueen brings his singular sonic approach coupled with highly melodic soloing. Joining Forq on this tour is bassist Kevin Scott whose incredible low end groove can be heard with guitarist Wayne Krantz as well as with Atlanta music legend, Colonel Bruce Hampton.

The Macpodz:
Hewn from forests of perseverance, the Macpodz drums and bass resonate frequencies of joie de vivre. Forged in the caverns of discipline, the cymbals and trumpets sound triumph. Galvanized by the the spark of inspiration, these uncanny minstrels perform epic narrations of honor and chivalry.

“You’ll see the glitter of crashing cymbals, and you’ll hear the thunder of rolling drums, the shimmer of trumpets, Ta-ra-ta-rah!.. Oh, think, my friends, how could any pool table ever hope to compete with a gold trombone?” -Prof. Harold Hill
