eighth blackbird combines the finesse of a string quartet, the energy of a rock band and the audacity of a storefront theater company. The Chicago-based, three-time Grammy-winning "super-musicians" (LA Times) entertain and provoke audiences across the country and around the world. Combining bracing virtuosity with an alluring sense of irreverence, the sextet debunks the myth that contemporary music is only for a cerebral few.

"EIGHTH BLACKBIRD PLAY LIKE MUSICIANS POSSESSED... THEY TAKE WING, SOARING ON AN UPTHRUST OF PRECISION-TOOLED VIRTUOSITY." - BBC, LONDON

"THEIR ABILITY TO SYNCHRONIZE IN ABSOLUTE LOCKSTEP WAS,
IN A WORD, AMAZING."
- CHICAGO TRIBUNE
