The Marc Holt Quintet is a Saskatoon-based group made up of some of the city’s best young players, performing a mix of original compositions and arrangements along side standards and contemporary jazz tunes. The group strives to strike a balance between something that appeals to the 21st century music fan as well as diehard jazz listeners. Led by baritone saxophonist Marc Holt, the quintet made their debut at the 2014 Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. Since then have performed all around Saskatchewan and Alberta. Marc is backed up by pianist Bryn Becker, guitarist Michael Stankowski, bassist Nevin Buehler, and drummer Dylan Smith.
