Four 80 East
Four80East began as a studio project when DeBoer and Grace, who had been writing, arranging and producing for other artists on their Boomtang Records label, put together material of their own and released it as The Album, in 1997. The Album was well-received by critics and the public alike, and the track "Eastside" became the 7th most played on contemporary-jazz radio in the U.S. the next summer. It was followed by Nocturnal in 2001, and Round 3 in 2002. Their fourth album, En Route was released in 2007. Their fifth CD, Roll On, came out in 2009, followed by a sixth, Off Duty, in 2012. Four80East LIVE, a collection of 15 select songs recorded from three different shows, was released in early 2014.
