Takes place during Groove Brno 2024

Forq resides at the crossroads of infectious grooves, ear-bending harmony, and melodies that linger long after the night concludes. Comprising a stellar lineup of world-class improvisers, the band's music is not only a showcase of exceptional skill but a testament to their uniquely memorable, genre-blending compositions.

Originally founded by keyboardist Henry Hey (known for collaborations with David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Jeff "Tain" Watts) and bassist Michael League (Grammy-winning leader of Snarky Puppy), Forq has evolved to include guitarist Chris McQueen (Snarky Puppy, Bokanté) or guitarist Jordan Peters (Jon Batiste, Bokanté, Lauryn Hill), drummer Jason "JT" Thomas (renowned for his work with Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Marcus Miller, Snarky Puppy, Mark Lettieri Trio), and bassist Kevin Scott (Government Mule, Wayne Krantz, Col. Bruce Hampton) or bassist Eli Menezes (Richard Bona, Lauryn Hill, Meshell Ndegeocello)

What sets Forq apart is not just their virtuosity but their commitment to creating a musical experience that is as enjoyable as it is impressive. With a penchant for delivering engaging and fun performances, Forq's music is a celebration that captivates audiences worldwide. Having graced international stages, including prestigious festivals like North Sea Jazz, Montreux Jazz, and Jazz á Vienne, Forq continues to leave an indelible mark with their irresistible blend of talent and pure enjoyment.
