Duo quartet

SLOFolks Presents: The Duo Quartet

Saturday November 16th @ 6:30pm - 10:00pm

Duo Quar­tet — the truth is, this is a band that wasn’t sup­posed hap­pen. It start­ed with four old friends think­ing, hey, let’s do a cou­ple of shows as a dou­ble-bill’: Nina Ger­ber & Chris Web­ster in con­cert with The Pam & Jeri Show (Pam Del­ga­do and Jeri Jones of Blame Sal­ly). Giv­en that all four women already had stel­lar rep­u­ta­tions in the greater Bay Area, it wasn’t hard to book some high pro­file venues fol­lowed by full houses.

At first each per­for­mance stuck to the pro­gram – one duo fol­lowed by the oth­er duo, with a grand finale of all four play­ing togeth­er. The duo part was great, but the quar­tet thing was down­right excit­ing. Before long the shows fea­tured the four of them play­ing togeth­er, with an occa­sion­al duo break­out” sec­tion. Hence the band, and the name Duo Quartet”.

From an audi­ence point of view there is some­thing rich­ly sat­is­fy­ing in expe­ri­enc­ing these four women onstage with a dynam­ic rang­ing from ten­der, ethe­re­al songs to rau­cous barn-burn­ers. Web­ster and Del­ga­do sing most of the leads – Chris often expert­ly play­ing a wash­board while Del­ga­do dri­ves the band with her per­cus­sion. But if this were a box­ing ring you’d see com­ing in from oppo­site cor­ners the duel­ing ener­gy of Jones and Ger­ber egging each oth­er on with their gui­tar-God­destry – whip­ping the band and the audi­ence into a ver­i­ta­ble frenzy.

With a beau­ti­ful set of orig­i­nal music mixed with sur­pris­ing­ly orig­i­nal takes on a few choice cov­ers, Duo Quar­tet brings to the stage a band that is greater than the sum of its already impres­sive parts.
