About
The Hal Merrill quartet is a jazz group that plays progressive jazz from the 1970's and 1960's, featuring Hal Merrill playing steel guitar as one of the lead instruments.
The group also plays a variety of original compositions. Hal Merrill is at the cutting edge of applying the pedal steel guitar to modern jazz sounds. This group plays limited blues and no country or pop music. The most likely comment you will get from listeners is that the music is very soothing. The tone of the steel guitar creates a very intimate environment for conversations.

This group will also perform as a trio or duo, with corresponding adjustments in the fee.

If you want a top-notch group with a cool, sophisticated sound that is not too loud and provides an excellent, intimate atmosphere for your event, this is the group for you.

Don't hesitate! Book this group for your event early while they are still available.

From Scott Yanow, Jazz journalist and historian, July 12, 2016: This Hal Merrill group sounds great! It's rewarding to hear the steel guitar playing 21st century jazz a la Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, etc. The steel guitar has been typecast of course but just like Bela Fleck on the banjo or several great accordionists and tuba players, you've set another direction for the instrument."

From Bob Baker, Music consultant and author of 12 books, July 20, 2016: Great show, song and playing chops all around. Well done, Hal!

Don't hesitate! Book this group for your event early while they are still available.
