Northwest band leader, Mike Faast, has teamed up with blues/jazz guitarist, Frank Grace, jazz bassist, Michael Eytcheson, saxophonist, Eric Likkel, and drummer, Randy Doake to form a swingin’ little band called The Archtops. The group offers two distinct musical programs.They can perform as The Archtops (Swing Quartet), performing swing standards, both vocal and instrumental, or they can bring their five or six piece Archtops Rythm and Blues Band which features a wide array of R&B, blues, and 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s era rock and Motown covers.
For weddings, anniversaries, or corporate events, they can mix the two styles to appeal to a broad age group. The group can be expanded from their core trio or quartet to a five or six piece band including drums, sax, and piano, if desired.
Whether you’re planning a swing dance, anniversary, wedding, town fair, or corporate party, The Archtops can tailor their style, set list, and the size of their band to perfectly accommodate your event.” Here are some video samples of the Archtops Quartet.
