Dudley Manlove Quartet

Based in Seattle WA

THE DUDLEY MANLOVE QUARTET, proud owners of the big boss sound of lounge, purveyors of pure pop pleasure, and easily the world's foremost six-man quartet, has been wowing crowds since early 1995. Mixing a savvy blend of pop standards and sing-along favorites, DMQ has blossomed into one of Seattle's top club draws. DMQ celebrates the one truly American art form: The Popular Song. The great composers-Bacharach/David, Webb, Diamond--and the original artists--Sinatra, Warwick, Humperdinck--are the inspiration for DMQ's unique musical stylings. Each member of DMQ has an impressive musical background. both in formal training and in pop music. They bring this knowledge and experience to the art of lounge, giving each tune a fresh burst of energy, precision, and showmanship.

Audiences in Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Atlanta, and Tokyo have gone bonkers for DMQ. And with the August 1997 release of the 14-song live CD, "The Dudley Manlove Quartet. are GO!, the rest of the world is finally able to join the party.
