The 442's

What happens when you combine two outstanding members of the world-class St. Louis Symphony with two of the city's finest jazz musicians from the Erin Bode Group? You get The 442's, an exciting new acoustic instrumental quartet named for the modern standard tuning of 442 Hz! Brought together by the innovative and inspired compositions of Adam Maness, who also plays guitar, accordion, melodica and glockenspiel in the group, The 442's features Shawn Weil on violin, Bjorn Ranheim on cello and Sydney Rodway on bass. This unique collaboration, formed in the spring of 2012 by a tight-knit group whose love of good food and fine beer makes rehearsals feel like dinner parties, combines outstanding musicianship, group singing, inventive improvisation, whistle solos and special guest appearances by famed jazz vocalist, Erin Bode. Exploring the boundaries of jazz, classical, folk and rock music, their music can move you to the edge of your seat or comfort you like a lullaby, all within the same set.

Originally inspired by the Grammy Award Winning album, The Goat Rodeo Sessions - a collaborative album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile - The 442's were born of a common musical inquisitiveness and a search for new and exciting musical possibilities. Their search already has taken them to venues as varied as Powell Symphony Hall, Cyrano's Cafe, and the Tavern of Fine Arts. Coming months will find them gaining even more visibility at other venues throughout the St. Louis area.
