Formed in 2006, Atlantis Quartet is at the forefront of the twin cities modern jazz scene, having toured the Midwest and East Coast while releasing five albums to critical acclaim. JazzTimes’ Bill Milkowski calls the band “startlingly original” and both the City Pages and Star Tribune have named them Best Twin Cities Jazz Artist (2011, 2012). In 2015, the group was awarded the McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians. Featuring four of Minnesota’s most exciting improvisors and composers, saxophonist Brandon Wozniak, guitarist Zacc Harris, bassist Chris Bates, and drummer Pete Hennig, Atlantis Quartet is a band whose music “defies labels” (MPR).

“The music evolves as a constantly shifting mosaic of textures, rhythmic patterns, and tonal colors.” – Rick Mason, City Pages
“Energy, emotion, expression, maturity, and moments of luminous beauty.” Pamela Espeland, MinnPost Artscape
“This is a band of bold artists, fearless in delivering their own compositions without compromise.” – Andrea Canter, Jazz Police
