Our mission is to strengthen the local community with musical experiences that engage and empower our audiences. We do this by hosting​ concerts at a variety of community centers ​throughout Austin; playing music that will be familiar and accessible to all audiences; and finding unique ways to give back to the community during those concerts.​

The name comes from a neighborhood in North Austin, and was chosen as a way to claim our commitment to spreading joy and to affirm our home in Texas.

JBQ is the artist in residence at University Baptist Church.
We send our thanks and gratitude to the congregation
for their generosity and encouragement.

Interested in playing with us?

We like to keep an eye out for subs or potential new members

The instrumentation is flexible, what's more important is that you're a creative person who wants to try new things.

Is that you?

Richard Dayries

Richard began playing trumpet in grade school after being told his fingers were ‘too short’ to play saxophone. Undeterred, Richard played trumpet though intermediate and high school, performing in the school’s concert, marching, and jazz bands. More recently, Richard has performed with the Central Texas Medical Orchestra. Richard graduated from UT Austin with a Mathematics degree and currently works at UT in the IT department.
