Chris Maddock Quartet (1st Show)


Chris Maddock – Alto saxophone, Tenor saxophone
Liam Dunachie – Organ
Tobie Carpenter – Electric guitar
Edward Richardson – Drum kit


The Chris Maddock Quartet aims to explore combining elements of the classic organ-based rhythm section with a range of modern influences, whilst paying homage to organ masters such as Dr. Lonnie Smith, Joey Defrancesco, Jimmy Smith and others.

A strong arsenal of Chris’s original material and arrangements gives this group of exceptional musicians free reign to explore powerful grooves and electrifying improvisational flights.

The band recently released their debut EP “The Hunt” on Ubuntu music, and will be performing tracks from this at the gig as well as new material.
