Quactus Does Grow In Arizona
LA’s Progressive Rock/Jam Band, Quactus Set To Play Two Shows in Flagstaff and Tempe November 12 & 13
Quactus kicked off their CD release tour with three shows in Southern California with a host of “special guests” including Steve Molitz (Particle, Phil Lesh & Friends), Mike Mangan (Big Organ Trio), Viking (Delta Nove) and Steve Harris (Cubensis) playing to near sold out rooms in Los Angeles, San Diego, Ventura, CA. They followed that with a trip to Henderson, NV and most recently kicking off the Particle 10 Year Anniversary Tour at Winston’s in San Diego with Particle. Quactus now brings their unique jam rock style back to Arizona.
“We a so thrilled with the way it (A Sense of We) turned out. The addition of Mike (Mangan) and Steve (Molitz) on the album gives it that cherry on the top of a musical sundae. We really hope you like it. I know you will,” said Quactus drummer, Matthew McDuffy.
“Equal parts Phish and a soaring momentum all their own—the quartet plays with a focused abandon that is quite enchanting.”
“This album is chock full of musical greatness. A true perspective of the talent that is Quactus.” Billy Sunday, ShakedownNews.com
For the album A Sense of We, Quactus called upon Mike Mangan of Big Organ Trio and Particle’s master of the keys, Steve Molitz to add Hammond B3 and keyboard accents to two of the albums tracks. Shortly before the release, Relix Magazine named the first track off the album, “At Ease,” as “Editors Pick of the Month” in their April-May 2010 issue.
