Founded in 2020, 400 Proof Music originates from Atlanta, the Capital of the South. 

The group was founded by its four key musicians, Ray, Uriel, Marquis, and Moe, who met and formed at a local hotspot, the Atlanta Beltline. 

With performances each week, they nurtured a unique approach to music to create a “new age of smooth jazz” that included neo-soul, rhythm and blues, Latin, and pop. 

As their popularity and fans grew, they began playing in other local venues along Georgia State 400, building the foundation for their name 400 Proof Music.

Collectively, 400 Proof Music has experience playing alongside other well-known artists such as international jazz pianist Donald Brown, Kirk Whalum, Outkast, Branford Marsalis, and the Georgia Symphony Orchestra, to name a few. 

The group now comprises the original four founders as well as a collective group of individuals that all bring a distinctive sound to the mix while peppering in original compositions that make the eyes close and head nod in acceptance.

As 400 Proof Music continues to grow, they become more than just their music but rather a movement.
