The Dino Dominelli Quartet will appear live at Beat Niq on Friday, March 28. The Edmonton saxophonist will be joined by Chris Andrew (piano), Rubim de Toledo (bass), and Tyler Hornby (drums) for the performance.

In-demand in his native Alberta, Dino is often seen performing with Edmonton and Calgary artists such as Sandro Dominelli, Jim Head, Wayne Feschuk, John Taylor, Charlie Austin, Chris Andrew, Rubim De Toledo, Andrew Glover, Dale James, George Blondheim, Andy Ericson, Brian Buchanan and Mike Lent.
