Mark McKenzie Quartet is a Dallas-based jazz group with an authentic, accessible sound. Featuring saxophone, guitar (or piano), bass and drums, the band’s music is rooted in the classic straight-ahead jazz of the 1950s and 60s.
A typical MMQ set includes standards from the Great American Songbook (Kern, Rogers & Hart, Mancini), time-tested tunes from jazz greats (Ellington, Coltrane, Brubeck), and the occasional modern pop cover (Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen).
Since forming in 2008, the MMQ has maintained an active schedule in local venues and is available for corporate events, private parties, wedding receptions, restaurants, nightclubs, or any live music setting. Trio and duo configurations are available.
