With great sound tech available, we played purely acoustically with just mics on the instruments. It's how we record all our videos and albums, no amps. This is the best way to hear classic, all-strings jazz especially in a concert setting.
During a song I went and sat next to a couple in the front row, playing my guitar to demonstrate the 'joy of acoustic' point.
We also play acoustic for quite a few private events and weddings where the venue has sound restrictions.
It was a real pleasure to tap into our back catalogue of tunes and pomping them out with an earthy sound for a such great audience!
Thanks for having us Fleece Jazz!
Here's a couple more pics from the evening.
I don't know what was said here but I obviously found it amusing.

Here's a video of the Quartet performing the Henry Mancini classic 'Meglio Stasera' from the very first 1960's Pink Panther film, one of the tunes we played for Fleece Jazz.
