Atlantis Quartet is celebrating 10 years as a band this month with a couple performances at Vieux Carre. We had hoped to have a new record out by now but 3/4 of the group decided to make babies before we all get too old to chase them around. We’ve been rehearsing the new songs and should have another record out in early 2017 but we have some fun things planned for the 10 year anniversary at Vieux Carre so come down and celebrate with us.
