Classic Jazz With a Twist! 
Whether its upbeat jazz for a party or background jazz to set just the right mood Quintessential brews up a rich blend of best loved jazz standards and stellar original tunes with a fresh modern twist. Quintessential  has entertained appreciative audiences at venues ranging from posh ballrooms to outdoor festivals to house concerts to corporate events to packing out the local bistro and more.  Our music has been featured on CBC, CKUA, Jango and Jazz  Enjoy great live music from a band that loves to play jazz for people! Quintessential is based in Vancouver, Canada and is proud to be a musical sponsor with Mission Possible and Jazzthink and a supporter of Jazz Evensong at the Sanctuary in Brentwood.  


House Concerts - A big thing!
Some of Quintessential's favorite gigs have been playing at private house concerts.  We love the opportunity to get to know our listeners up close and personal.  It is great fun to be able to play songs upon request for music lovers who want to hear their favorite jazz tune.  We have really enjoyed celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, milestone events, and special evenings for music lovers.  We would love to talk with you about how you can host a great evening of live jazz in your home.  Contact Us
