Four80East is the Toronto based electro jazz ensemble of Rob DeBoer (keyboards,
bass and guitar) and Tony Grace (percussion); accompanied by various session musicians. Four80East began as a studio project when DeBoer and Grace, who had been writing, arranging and producing for other artists on their "Boomtang" 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. It was followed by "Nocturnal" in 2001, and "Round 3" in 2002. Their fourth album, "En Route" was released in 2007.Although Four80East began as a studio concept, they have evolved into a live act. Four80East's music is characterized by a distinctive melodic atmosphere; underpinned by heavy duty rhythm grooves. They are featured on the 2007 compilation album, "".
