Squid Inc is made up of some of the Bay Area's fiercest string players and will open your ears as the world of popular music dances with classical tradition. Fun, fiery, and fully engaging, we play our original tunes and original, unusual arrangements with a unique style and flare all our own. Come check us out live and you'll hear the line between performer and audience dissolve, where everyone feels they are welcomed in with open tentacles - completely encouraged to act, react, and interact. Welcome to the future of the string quartet!

Here's a bit of the nitty gritty - SI members have played and recorded with Death Cab for Cutie, Bjork, Peter Gabriel, Rosin Coven, Jazz Mafia, Third Eye Blind, Amy X. Neuberg, Nice Guy Trio, Donna Summers and dozens more. The Squids are in the midst of a collaborative song cycle with singer Carrie Katz and percussionist Laura Inserra.

The more classical ventures of the members of Squid Inc include the San Francisco Symphony, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New World Symphony, the Berlin Philharmonic, San Francisco Ballet, New Century Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, SF Contemporary Players, Empyrean Ensemble, The Knights, Classical Revolution, Oakland East Bay Symphony, and Marin Symphony.
