Quactus : Formed during the Spring of 2005 from an eclectic mix of gentlemen from both coasts and a little of the Midwest, Quactus came together in Los Angeles after guitarist Seth Gordon, drummer Matthew McDuffee, guitarist Gabriel Weiner, and bassist Greg Zachan had the good fortune of crossing paths with each other. The members of Quactus have over 30 years of musical and audio instruction amongst them i...n both private and college level courses, which has given the band a strong command of music theory, songwriting, improvisation, vocal technique and music production skills. This combined experience finally culminated in the release of the band’s self-produced and recorded debut album, “Once a pond, a spine…”, in early 2008. The album’s release, along with incessant promotion via the internet, has garnered a wider following for the band outside of Southern California, including a win on Jambands.com's "New Groove of the Month" Poll for May 2008 and an invitation to become a member band in the Home Grown Music Network, which has led to further national exposure and radio airplay. Additionally, the band has shared the stage with several national acts, including The New Mastersounds, Tea Leaf Green, John Popper (Blues Traveler), Moonalice (w/ members of Phil Lesh and Friends, Hot Tuna, Bruce Hornsby, and Jefferson Starship), EOTO (w/ members of String Cheese Incident), Leo Nocentelli (The Meters), Bobby Vega (Sly and the Family Stone), CR Gruver (Polytoxic/Outformation), Marc Ford (Black Crowes), Steve Molitz (Particle), Banyan, U-Melt, The Heavy Pets, Underground Orchestra, Delta Nove, Big Organ Trio, Jamie Janover, Leon Mobley, and Al Howard & the K23 Orchestra. Individual members of Quactus have also shared the stage or bill with Umphrey’s McGee, Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Mr. Blotto, and NOFX. Taking its cue from the classic jam bands, including the Grateful Dead, Phish, and the Allman Brothers, Quactus, has developed a diverse style that blends various genres of music. Harmonious vocals set atop shifting textures and moods, mixed with subtle meter changes, intricate melodies, and a cohesive improvisational style backed by a solid rhythm section comprise the core of the Quactus sound. Yet, their jams may run the gamut from psychedelic to trance-like to ultra-funky or even heavy metal excess. In a live setting, the band never performs a show the same way twice, often including on-the-spot composition via hand signals between band members. The band is also known for throwing in a cover tune or song tease from time to time. As a result, Quactus is establishing itself as one of the most exciting new live acts to emerge from the Southern California scene. Currently the band is promoting and planning a tour in support of their sophomore album, "A Sense of We", which came out on July 20, 2010. The album showcases some of the band’s most progressive compositions to date, including tracks that contain elements of Hard Rock, Dance, Jazz, Acoustic, Reggae, Punk, Metal, World Music, and Jam Improv. With this album, the band’s musicianship and production skills have been taken to the next level, while maintaining the core Quactus sound. The album features special guest artists: Steve Molitz (Particle, Phil and Friends) and Mike Mangan (Big Organ Trio)
