AS220 Main Stage
115 Empire Street

October 7th
we have the Alex Han Quintet and Four Agreements.
On October 7th we make our return to AS220, and with us we are bringing some incredible local musicians. Headlining the night we have Four Agreements. This quartet plays with superb virtuosity that is seldom matched by any other group we see – especially as they continue to grow as a unit – and that have always been a welcome sight for our series. Formed initially as a weekly jam by a group of friends, this unique and exciting band features Clay Nordhill on guitar, Tom White on keyboards, Sam Kurzontkowski on bass, and Paul DiMartino on drums. The group uses original compositions as a vehicle to explore possibilities in sound and communication. Opening the evening will be the Alex Han Quintet who are a group of Brown University undergrads from various musical backgrounds. Coming together in Brown’s vibrant jazz community, these musicians integrate hip-hop, neo-soul, and fusion while staying rooted in the jazz tradition. This group will feature original compositions in a genre-bending performance. They present an eclectic fusion of sounds and styles that we’ve been eager to host at the series, you have to tune in for these inspiring players.
 As is the standard, the music begins at 9pm with tickets being a meager $10 for an incredible night of sound to end your week
