Its with tremendous enthusiasm that I invite you out to another wonderful event at Saxquest. Next week on Monday evening (Jul 18) from 5-7PM we'll be hosting a concert with 3x Grammy Award winner JEFF COFFIN and his Mu'tet.
The Mu'tet takes it's name from the word mutation, giving way to Coffin's belief that music is constantly changing and mutating. In addition to the Mu'tet, Jeff has been a member of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones since 1997 and has been with the Dave Matthews Band since 2008.
Other members of the group include ledgendary and iconic players:
Felix Pastorius, son of bass great Jaco Pastorius, roots the Mu’tet on electric bass. He has been playing with the group since 2002. Felix has also been touring recently with legendary jazz drummer Cindy Blackman while living and playing in NYC. Felix is a gifted composer and a monster bassist with great chops and sensitivity.
On drums is the legendary Jeff Sipe. He is renowned for his mind bending drumming with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio, Susan Tedeschi, Greg Osby, Phil Lesh, Project Z, Jonas Hellborg & Shawn Lane, Leftover Salmon, Alex Machacek, The Jimmy Herring Project, and many, many others. When Jeff Sipe unleashes his whirlwind of rhythms and grooves they have to be seen and, especially, heard to be believed.
Bill Fanning rounds out the horns on trumpet. Bill has performed with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, the Mu'tet, Glenn Frye (of the Eagles), George Garzone, Jon Faddis, Maria Schneider and George Russell. A brilliant improvisor and musician, Bill is stretching the boundries of the trumpet.
Its such a tremendous thrill for us to bring such a fantastic event to you! If you haven't been to a Saxquest event yet, be sure this one doesn't pass you by. Please print and distribute the attached flier to as many people you know who may be interested. Thanks for your support!!!
