Based out of Quebec City, the Stephane Chamberland Jazz Quartet is Steph’s main original music project. An instrumental jazz fusion group playing original arrangements, the group is complemented by guitarist Jonathan Hains, Saxophonist Yanis Steprans and bassist Frédéric Vermette. The Quartet is available for booking anywhere with a more standard setlist for private parties or more intimate venues and with their more complex original material for festivals and larger shows. The Quartet also often accompanies Steph as he travels performing drum clinics.
