standards & substandards

We’re an easygoing quartet (vocals, piano, bass, drums) that loves to play whimsical re-creations, interesting blends of genres, classic jazz standards, or ironic twists on simple tunes. We’ll just as happily perform an upbeat jazz standard as a bluesy torch song, and we’ll also blur traditions of funk, pop, rock, and blues as the spirit moves us. In short, we just like playing music as we’ve reimagined it, a charismatic vocalist and playful instrumentalists having a good time on a stage or in your backyard.

Stop by at a gig some time or let us know when we can come play for you. Invite us to an event and we’ll cater to your musical tastes and mood. Take a look at our news updates and contact us for more information. 

Standards & Substandards is (L to R): Adam Johnston (piano), Caryn Crowley (vocals/diva), Ian Marshall (drums), and Tim Herzog (bass).
