Dave Rempis
Critics have called Dave Rempis "one of the busiest and most versatile jazz musicians in Chicago" (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader), "a ferocious virtuoso improviser" (Marc Meyers, AllAboutJazz.com) and "a young veteran of Chicago's experimental music scene who has been establishing a vividly recognizable voice of his own" (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). In addition to his well documented sideman work, he leads/co-leads groups such as Triage, The Engines, The Rempis/Daisy Duo, and The Dave Rempis Quartet. Founded in April 2004, The Rempis Percussion Quartet draws on a wide range of influences, including West African and Latin American rhythms, funk and free jazz, to create spontaneous music driven by unrestrained energy and a focus on ensemble motion.
