We are thrilled to welcome John Baboian to our newly-renovated contemporary space. John has been teaching guitar at Berklee College of Music for 39 years and brings his amazing talent and fellow musicians to light up this venue.

The John Baboian Quartet features Baboian on guitar, Daniel Ian Smith on woodwinds, Keala Kaumeheiwa on bass, and Steve Langone on drum set. The quartet plays mainstream and contemporary jazz and Latin music, mainly composed by Baboian but with a few choice standards. The members have performed around the world with a variety of great musicians.
 
On April 4, The John Baboian Quartet performs with special guest vocalist, Sandi Bedrosian. Sandi Bedrosian has been performing professionally since the age of 20 as a lead vocalist singing Jazz, Swing, Rhythm & Blues, and Classical, as well as Top 40 and Gospel/Liturgical music. She’s been the opening act/lead vocalist for such artists as: Gary Charrone of Van Halen/Extreme, Sheena Easton, Tom Sullivan, Barbara Mandrell, and the Capital Steps.
