From our new album "Flotsam" Available February 2016
The Fogcutters are a 19-piece big band from Portland, Maine, with a different perspective on the format of the classic big band: writing and playing original music unencumbered by a singular music style, and influenced by musical masters of the past and present. The Fogcutters songs are melting pots of styles mixed with contemporary influences, which creates a unique sound and eclectic style that is anything but traditional. This is not your grandfather's big band!
With 13 horns, a burnin’ 5-piece rhythm section and the stellar vocals and presence of Megan Jo Wilson and Chas Lester, balancing thoughtful subtlety and raw power in a way that only The Fogcutters can. The groove is infectious and the impact is stunning.
The Fogcutters have spent the last year and a half creating Flotsam, and now we are extremely proud to share it.
