Local music trio, Quartet Minus One, has built their sound on a foundation of ’60s jazz, ‘70s funk, and roots reggae, drawing on music from Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Ernest Ranglin, Herbie Hancock, Eddie Harris, Bob Marley and more.
They’ve also crafted a soulful Michael Jackson-Stevie Wonder Tribute Band, “Glove vs. Glasses,” which includes an eclectic mix of musicians and a 3-piece horn section, and male and female vocalists. This magical battle takes place at Moody’s Oct 31 and Nov 1, from 8pm to 11pm.

“The idea behind our tributes is to translate the tunes to make them our own rather than just ‘cover’ them exactly like the albums,” explains the leader of the band, Brian Hess.
Quartet Minus One is lead by saxophonist/keyboardist Hess, along with Todd Holway on keys, and Steve Saturno on drums. For the Michael Jackson tribute concert they often team up with Steve Kershisnik on bass, Jesse Steele on trumpet, Marissa Campbell on vocals, Zeb Early on guitar and vocals and Kevin Drake on baritone sax.
