The band of six consists of brothers John Rienzi (drummer/mandolin player) and Sean Rienzi (bassist) with guitarist Vinny Costantino, keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Chris Brooks and guitarist/vocalists Nick Pirollo and Ryan Porciello. Known for their 3-part vocal harmonies, guitar solos and improvisation, the group’s eclectic Americana sound includes elements of rock, folk, alternative, country, blues and jazz.
It’s a collaborative writing process for Quarter Horse. It might take awhile to complete a song but the goal is to be as democratic as possible. The debut EP River Flow was recorded live in the studio within a few hours and the band will soon be recording a full-length album.
“We’re planning on recording with Andy Falco and Jack Licitra,” said John Rienzi. “They’ve been doing some great recordings lately and we think they could really capture our sound the way we hear it.”
