The Mu’tet is led by Jeff Coffin, saxophonist from Dave Matthews Band. Also a composer, educator, and 3x Grammy winner, you likely know Jeff from his 14 year tenure with the genre-defying Bela Fleck & the Flecktones (1997-2010). 

Rounding out the Mu’tet are a group of world class all-star musicians; 

ROY “FUTUREMAN” WOOTEN: Drums 
(Bela Fleck & the Flecktones/5x Grammy winner)

FELIX PASTORIUS: Electric Bass
(Yellowjackets/Son of bass legend Jaco Pastorius)

BILL FANNING: Trumpet & Space Trumpet
(George Garzone/Maria Schneider/George Russell)

CHRIS ‘The Pianimator’ WALTERS: Keys (JD Souther)

The group takes its name from the word ‘mutation’, clearly reflecting Coffin’s philosophy that music must continue to change and mutate in order to grow.

The band strives to expand themselves, as well as their fans, with music influenced by the deep wells of funk, jazz, African, New Orleans, Indian, folk, electronic, Gypsy, rock, Brazilian and other musical cultures around the world.

Jeff Coffin & the Mu’tet are unlike any band you have heard before!

“Any band that jams like this has earned an exclamation point in the title of its live album…equal parts Galactic and Dirty Dozen Brass Band…(Coffin) enters like a spinning top, corkscrewing his phrases into a tightly wound circle that turns into a cyclone.” – Jazz Times


“These players are peaking around corners and lifting up rocks to see what they find, and they’re stretching out wide to push boundaries…twisting the mind like a metaphysical puzzle. – www.hittinthenote.com


“Brilliant transient transcendence. Yes it’s good. It’s very good…wicked nasty. I couldn’t sleep. I had several epiphanies.” – Fredricksburg Patch


“…some of the best fusion heard in many a year.” – www.jazzreview.com
