The Fusionauts are a truly unique musical beast. Their latest record, Mutant, is an old school, instrumental album recorded to 2″ analog tape. In his review for BC Musician’s Magazine, Dave O Rama describes them as:

“… a sophisticated synthesis of funk, jazz, Brazilian tropicália, and Nigerian Afrobeat. “Mutant” is a dynamic jazz workout for the dance floor. Gliding all over the funky Lagos rhythms, … you’ll hear an incredible interplay by a collective of incredibly gifted soloists… When approaching this Mutant consider all the best things about electric Miles, Jean Luc Ponty, Pat Metheny, [and] Weather Report served over a bed of funky Fela Kuti inspired workouts and garnished with a heavy dollop of Hermeto Pascoal, Brazil’s albino musical wizard. The grooves here are perfumed with jungle flowers and salt from the ocean spray. As much a listening experience, as it is a dance floor filler The Fusionauts create a perfectly realized hybrid that serves both the brain and the booty.”

This year, The Fusionauts return to the Yardbird Suite, bigger and better than ever, as a nine piece ensemble. It will be an emotionally and spiritually invigorating experience that will satisfy jazz-hardened listeners and skeptical newcomers alike.

Tickets – $22.00 for EJS members (reimbursed at the door); $26.00 for non-members/guests, plus applicable fees.
