The Section Quartet challenges traditional ideas of the string quartet. TSQ doesn’t play classical music -- they only play rock & roll!
By day, The Section Quartet is in-demand for both recording studio collaborations and electrifying live performances alongside music’s top artists and producers. But by night, this rock band-disguised-as-a-string-quartet has sold out shows from their native Los Angeles to New York, London and beyond, including Coachella Music Festival main stage shows in 2004 and 2006. TSQ’s own visionary arrangements and high-powered live shows confirm that you don’t need a guitar to rock.
The Section Quartet’s critically acclaimed album, FUZZBOX, includes strikingly re-imagined tracks by Radiohead, the Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Postal Service, Failure, Soundgarden, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Muse, but their ever-expanding repertoire also includes full-album re-creations of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Radiohead’s landmark albums OK Computer and The Bends and Elliot Smith’s Either/Or.
Branching into the film world, The Section Quartet scored Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It.
