The John Montesante Quintet (JMQ) is a stylish, horn-led combo formed in 1990 by Jazz Trumpet, Arranger and Composer, John Montesante.

Influenced by bebop, the band offers a modern take on standards as well as John Montesante's special jazz arrangements. The John Montesante Quintet has gained respect in the discerning jazz scene due to its quality musicianship, versatility, entertainment value and ability to perform with any outstanding vocal and musical artists from in or out of town.

The current stellar line-up of Scott Lambie, Dean Addison, Joe Ruberto, Jim Glasson and John Montesante, and the diversity of vocal artists performing with the JMQ, gives this band a freshness, versatility and vitality that engages its audience. As well as a variety of jazz gigs, this is illustrated by the JMQ having a quality residency in one venue for over nine years to date - which is a rarity in the modern jazz music scene.

At Dizzy's on OCT 26, the JMQ's special guest singer is versatile and very talented singer, SAMANTHA MORLEY. An experienced and very fine artist who sings across genres and is also a stage actress, Samantha recently released her own jazz album, 'The Nearness of You'.

May is bringing the 'a repertoire of fine jazz standards with her to Dizzy's and you are guaranteed a stellar experience with this special artiste, outstanding jazz music, delicious food and drink and excellent company.
