ARQ, led by bass player Alison Rayner, play “deliciously upbeat, groovy and thoughtful jazz” (Jazz UK Nov 2014).
They released their first album August to critical acclaim in 2014 and are now touring nationally.
Great grooves, poignant melodies and fluid improvisation. Influences as diverse as funk, folk, and Afro-Cuban dance music.

“Together they sound like a band with a long collective pedigree and a delight in playing together.”
Jazz Journal Nov 2014
