1 Quintus is Reuben Chess, Ari Friedman, Dave Dawda, and Mike Riddleberger. Their first EP (The Shape We're In) was released on iTunes in late 2006, recorded in conjunction with Downtown Recordings. This NYC-based group may have roots in the NYU jazz school and they might have abstract influences in such 80s pop bands as the Cars, but at the end of the day they have developed a style that is all their own. Quintus can often be seen playing at the Bowery Poetry Club and other Manhatten and Brooklyn venues.
