= An Eclectic Groove Oriented – Funky Jazz Quartet  

We are a Jazz/Funk/Fusion Quartet based out of Columbus, OH. Our music has been played worldwide on the internet, satellite & terrestrial radio stations. The FMD groove is rooted in the experimental school of the 70s…a time when jazz, soul, and funk were one and the same. 

Seeking to defy the ordinary, this diverse group of seasoned pros keeps things stirred up with unpredictable energy that moves.
