Quartyard Anniversary Entertainment Lineup
From the favelas in Brazil, Femi Kuti’s Shrine in Lagos, Tokyo’s bluegrass clubs, Ayahuasca ceremonies in Central America, Gamelan performances in Bali, desert festivals in the Australian Outback, and the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s modernized new capital Astana, Dirtwire spreads its message by building bridges across musical cultures in their own unique way.
Organized vibrations. Cam is a multi-instrumentalist that produces other-worldly grooves. Check his Tik-Tok for a glimpse of what we are talking about.
This San Diego bred supergroup came about when the pandemic took away their ability to play in person, practice and record together. John Roy had no work and was isolated like the majority of his fellow musicians. He wrote tunes, lyrics, arrangements, then recorded them with midi instruments in the office of his shuttered business (this business being a local hub of audio/visual gear utilized by many of the independent event producers in SD including Quartyard). He emailed and messaged everyone he knew from his days of touring and live gigs. People trapped at home sent tracks, WAV files, mp3s, even voicemails! John edited all of it together, got it mixed, mastered, and pressed. He’s since gathered players to bring the records to life.
See you there
What began as a social experiment some eight years ago, Quartyard has etched its place as a cultural and creative hub for San Diego. Their passion for creating an epic place for creators and community to gather is stronger than ever and are grateful and excited to celebrate another year.
See you there, San Diego!
