Since 2007, FOOTNOTE has been making its move onto the Rochester music scene and beyond. This electrified contemporary jazz-rock fusion group composes and performs music in the spirit of modern jazz artists and bands such as George Benson, Jeff Beck, Jeff Lorber, Pat Metheny, The Rippingtons, Ramsey Lewis, Robben Ford, Weather Report and many more.
FOOTNOTE’s talented musicians possess very eclectic backgrounds that chronicle a wide variety of genres including Blues, Country, Funk, Fusion, Jazz, R&B, Rock, and Progressive music.
FOOTNOTE embraces these diverse backgrounds and incorporates these styles and influences as the band composes, records, and performs its own high-energy sound. This fresh and unique blend is expressed in FOOTNOTE’s interpretations and arrangements of other artist’s songs, as well.
FOOTNOTE’s 2008 debut CD “Common Ground” introduced a distinctive new sound and can be heard on the net, as well as the radio airwaves in and around the Upstate New York area.
FOOTNOTE has performed at many Upstate New York festivals and venues, and has appeared on several local television programs, each spotlighting FOOTNOTE and its music.
As FOOTNOTE continues onward with its musical journey, it has established a solid base upon to which to forge new territory in the true spirit of electrified contemporary jazz-rock fusion.
