We play instrumental funk and blues with elements from popular music like swing, latino rock, pop, reggae, and rock. Our concept are “Excursion”, and “Dates” CD, which have been well received by Serbian and surrounding critics. We also use famous themes from various music to express our thoughts. On the Session “Serbian Soul, BRE”, Ivan Grlic’s Session, Milan Petrovic’s Quartet (MPQ), was formed in Belgrade in March 2011. The band made its debut public appearance as an integral part of the exhibit on 24 March 2011. The MPQ performed 25 times in Serbia, including at Lazarevac, Novi Sad, and Pancevo. This marked the end of the first year of existence. A special guest, who was authentically performing their musical performances, is the main feature of the performance.
