Quantum Steps is a Guitar and Bass duo consisting of Chris Salemme and Mikey Lathwood. While both Salemme and Lathwood are lovers of jazz, they expand their musical taste to various genres such as pop, rock, and hip hop. Lathwood, who is currently studying for his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at UNH, inspired their group's name. Quantum physics is Lathwood's specialty, and the name is a spin-off of Coltrane's paramount composition, "Giant Steps." Salemme is an active guitarist and drummer from the seacoast. Together, they provide a unique and lively musical experience.
