About
The BMR4 is an accomplished Chicago jazz quartet that features some of the best players in the city including members of the Buddy Guy, Lonnie Brooks, and Patricia Barber bands. Current venues that the group are playing include Andy's Jazz Club, Shaw's Crabhouse, Pops For Champagne, Pete Millers (all locations), Navy Pier, United Center (Chicago Bulls), and official City of Chicago events/functions for Mayor Daley. Our latest CD, 'Turning Point', was released on the Hallway Records label (Chicago) in 2007.

The BMR4 is a highly versatile group, and we have had much success with our Gigmaster clients.. We will tailor our musical selections to fit the event we are playing. Besides straight ahead jazz, BMR4 is exceptional at incorporating blues, funk, cajun, latin, soul-jazz, and R&B into the show. The BMR4 knows how to play upbeat music that will engage your audience, even if you're simply looking for background music for your event. No matter what your needs are, you can be assured that the group will perform a set worthy to the tastes of your clientele.

We have had much success with Gigmaster clients, and we encourage you to use BMR4 for your event.

Audio and video samples are available on our website.

It was a pleasure to work with Chris from Bmr4 from beginning to end! He was professional, very accommodating and easy to work with. The band was excellent! This was the first time I booked a band for a work event and he exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this band!

Our association holds its Awards Night every year. This is the first time we added live music. The feedback was overwhelmingly POSITIVE! We had the BMR4 duo play during the cocktail reception. Then the duo morphed into a fabulous quartet for the dinner and program in the ballroom. Their ability to know when to play and when to back off or decrease volume was impeccable. They worked well with Concept One (the AV production company we use). All in all BMR4 is a wonderful addition to our program. They are true professionals and excellent musicians. We hope to have them back every year going forward!!!

BMR4 was an exceptional feature to our night at The Field Museum. The music was outstanding, their attention to our requests was flawless, and they were very professional. I would recommend them highly to anyone wishing to listen to great jazz.

It was so nice working with Chris and the guys at Bmr4. I would highly recommend using them. I have gotten so many compliments about them I couldn't be happier. We used them from 7pm-midnight for my wedding and we never tired of hearing them play. We had a cocktail hour, dinner and then after dinner music. The band mixed it up and played a wide range of songs. We weren't a big dancing group but a few did partake they would be a great band for groups that love to dance and listen to great jazz. You won't regret hiring these guys.

Bmr4 truly exceeded my expectations. They were very well organized, completely accommodated my event and their talent was amazing. So many of my guests complimented me on the band during the event. I would definitely use Bmr4 for a future event and would give them high recommendations.
