Down 4 The Count is a vocal jazz ensemble based in Los Angeles. They have been singing and performing together since 2003, when the college vocal jazz class at their alma mater, California State University Northridge, was cancelled. The class was re-instated a few semesters after it was cancelled, due in large part to the enthusiasm for vocal jazz displayed by the students that went on to become Down 4 The Count. Colleen, Francesca, and Andreas are founding members of Down 4 The Count, and VJ and Penny joined in early 2009. By design or chance, all of the current members have attended California State University Long Beach, although they didn’t all meet there.
Although Down 4 The Count started as an a cappella ensemble, they have since added several arrangements that feature a rhythm section and/or other instruments. They have performed at several noteworthy jazz venues in the Los Angeles area, including the Jazz Bakery and Steamers Jazz Grill. Down 4 The Count is unique in that all ensemble members are proven arrangers; in fact, every track on their self-titled debut album was an original arrangement. Down 4 The Count’s future plans include a European tour in the summer of 2010 and recording a second album.
