The Connie Doolan Quartet ( is a San Francisco Bay Area group comprising four veteran musicians who artfully blur the boundaries of folk and jazz, resulting in an intelligent and sensitive connection of the two genres. Their unique sound – characterized by strong vocals and smart instrumentation and arranging – is at once mature, emotionally aware and elegantly sexy, whether the band is performing a sultry standard from the American Songbook or providing a fresh, rhythmic take on an ancient Irish ballad.

  1. Hi, Connie! Hope life is treating you well and that you are exactly as busy musically as you want to be. I’m wending my way through my final term at DVC efore retiring and am once again trying to gather guest musicians to record demos with the help of my eager MUSX 124 production students. Last time hit didn’t work out with your busy schedule and tenant comlications… what about now? Interested? Available? So far, though feelers are out, no one has bagged any Tuesday in November (11/3, 11/10, 11/17, 11/24). Might I reserve one for you and whomever you can lure in with you?

    Love to hear from you when you have a moment and thanks for even considering… I do try to treat my class to the high quality people I know and they don’t. Yet. xx Danny
