ruskinquartet / Bio

A unique blend of 18th and Vine, Kansas City Jazz and Rock&Roll Fusion with funky,melodic,and progressive overtones. Great musicianship, songwriting, and vocals.

Ruskinquartet started out as sidemen playing for numerous bands around Kansas City. There was an undeniable chemistry between the musicians. Starting this journey as a three piece with Brian Ruskin on Guitar and Vocals, Jeramy Johnston on Bass, and Bree Plaster on Drums, they worked out the foundation of the group before adding Caleb Aldrich on Tenor Sax. They have kept very busy playing every thing from quiet restaurant gigs doing straight jazz, to doing rock venues with all original music.
Some of Ruskinquartet's influences are: The Bad Plus, Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Frank Zappa, The Beatles, John Coltrane, Pat Metheny, Funk, Blues, Experimental, Rock & Roll, Gospel, and many people from the local scene.
