Quintet East plays the music of the Monterey, California–based group Along Came Betty, a group that began by styling its music after the hard bop groups of the late 1950s and 1960s like Art Blakey and Horace Silver. Subsequently, the band has added to its repertoire original compositions by Bain Smith that have been the basis for the recordings the band has done over the past 11 years, including four CDs, the latest of which was recorded in June of this year. Their recordings are available on iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon.

Motown Records was the most successful record company in the history of recorded music. Berry Gordy and the incredible roster of singers and musicians are credited with creating the "blueprint" for what we commonly refer to as contemporary American music.

The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Elton John, to name a few-all credit Smokey Robinson, Motown bassist James Jamerson, the Isley Brothers, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Mary Wells, and Stevie Wonder as just a few of the artists who inspired them to produce their iconic musical works.

Motown: The Soundtrack for Contemporary American Music will offer the listener a small window into some of the most commercially successful and memorable songs from the Motown songbook. It hopefully will excite audience members to want to know more about this music and its influence on many of the artists who have captured their musical curiosity.
