They have been called 'masters of their trade' and 'virtuosos'; the Modern Guitar Quintet has been dazzling audiences throughout Florida since 1997 with their original sound. One of the things that make the Modern Guitar Quintet unique is the instrumentation of three guitars, bass and drums, with one guitarist sometimes doubling on flute. Because guitars can play either single notes or chords, the sound that the Modern Guitar Quintet creates is much larger than any other group of this size. Playing with intensity, feeling and finesse, the Modern Guitar Quintet has enjoyed success not only with jazz fans, but also with average listeners who thought that they didn't like jazz (that is until they heard MGQ). Their music is instantly accessible and appreciated wherever they play. The Modern Guitar Quintet continues to push the sound barrier by writing new songs, trying to show what can be done with the guitar and with sound.
