Publish The Quest blends groove music melodies with vocally driven compositions that continually question social issues through story telling. Songwriter Jacob Bain formed the band in 2008 to record The Threads. As a result of that experience, seven passionate people have come together to form a strong bond and a band that is serious about keeping feet moving, bodies shaking and minds engaged!
Publish The Quest is destined to make a difference both at home and abroad. After recording with Femi Kuti, Matt Chamberlain, Eyvind Kang, Radioactive and Vieux Farka Touré, the band went into the studio to record a song to benefit music education in Cape Verde. Sodade, which features Cape Verdean vocalist Laise Sanches, was released in Portugal.
Publish The Quest performed in Zimbabwe at the Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA). HIFA was a six day annual festival and workshop program that showcased the very best of local, regional and international arts and culture in a comprehensive festival program of theatre, dance, music, circus, street performance, spoken word and visual arts.
PTQ has also recently toured through California and Canada. Last year they embarked upon a trip to Poland, where they opened for the amazing Nneka.
This is an all-ages show until 11pm, then 21+ after that. The cover charge is only $8.
