Maniacal4 is an adventurous, Denton-based quartet that isn’t afraid to take on the likes of Queen or Kansas with their (wait for it) trombones. The quartet is Matt Jefferson on bass trombone, Nick Laufer on tenor trombone, Carl Lundgren and Alex Dubrov, both on tenor trombone. Three of the members appear at UNT on the Square today in a free concert.

Rock music is serious business for brass quartet

UNT on the Square wraps ups its spring Thursday night music series today.

The downtown gallery and venue, which doubles as the headquarters of the University of North Texas Institute for the Advancement of the Arts, hosts free music during the school year. The series often features faculty, students and guest artists.

The Maniacal4 trombone group has received more than half a million hits on their YouTube video, a cover of the rock band Kansas’ song “Carry On.” The group will be minus one trombone for the local performance, and will perform some original works written for them by a professor at Texas Woman’s University. The group has a new CD out that is almost all classic rock covers, though the trombones get some more typical rock accompaniment — guitar and drums, especially.

The Maniacal4 starts the evening concert at 7 p.m., and then cedes the stage to UNT music faculty members Jennifer Lane, vocalist, Derek Chester, guest tenor, Susan Dubois, violist, and Elvia Puccinelli, vocalist and pianist. The concert for voice, viola and piano starts at 8 p.m.

UNT on the Square is located at 109 N. Elm St. on the downtown Denton Square.
