Purple Squirrel plays a rare breed of instrumental music, infused with modern jazz, rock, funk and blues influences. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the quartet is the brainchild of guitarist Chris Malley and keyboardist Bob Schlesinger. Having played together as sidemen in many other projects, they created Purple Squirrel as their forum for musical mayhem. They recently released "Split Shot", a CD of original compositions, and have been playing regularly around the Boulder/Denver area. Featuring Mark Diamond (bass) and Christian Teele (drums).
