Fux: Guaranteed to Come Again
Fux (Fyooks) is like an Electric Storm, combining multiple elements and sounds that flow throughout the space and provide a performance you just can’t stop staring into. Not only bringing the Passion back to Rock-n-Roll but also touching multiple genres including Psychedelic rock, Heavy rock, Funk, Jamtronic, Jazz, and Beatles pop like lyrical phrases. The name derives from composer Johann Joseph Fux, who helped modernize Western Music and is the author of Gradus ad Parnassum, a treatise on counterpoint. Blending their love for Umphrey’s McGee, Phish, Al Di Meola, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Steely Dan and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find the final puzzle pieces to this mystical musical monster, which lead to the discovery of Dustin Fennell, Dylan Porper, and Eric Johnson. Thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane Fux was born.
Fux decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading Love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were finally ready to show the world what was brewing in their mind to create music that makes sense.
Fux combines their humorous and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don’t let their contagious attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the machine like transcendental rhythmic varieties from Eric , wondrous varieties of sounds for the imagination from Dylan, thunderous bass love bombs from Dustin and sporadic psychedelic ignition from Sultan, Fux will keep you dancing all night long.
“I wish i named my band something good.”
Brendan Bayliss, Umphrey’s McGee
Brandon, or B, is one of Sultan’s best friends from his younger days. He is from a laid back town called Decatur, Ga (COD) and is the Tour Manager to the Rock Fury called Fux. Music is his first love and he enjoys listening to all types of genres, but hip hop has always been his passion. He was first introduced to the band Fux by first hand watching Sultan on his journey from the very beginning. Sultan would always tell him his dream of starting his own band and touring around the world. To watch his dream come into reality only fueled B to join this magical journey. If you see him around at shows or festivals don’t be afraid to to say hey and chat about music. In his spare time he B sleep so excuse that “hibernating” face he has.
Eleven years of business management would prepare Cordell to lead Fux into the raging 20’s and beyond. With a strong work ethic and no B.S. attitude, there’s not a promotor or problem he can’t handle. Born and raised in the Appalachian mountains. Cordell developed a love for music, family, and hard work. Instantly recognizable with his infectious smile and southern drawl. Make sure you say hi if you see him at a show. He first met Sultan by always standing near each other at Umphrey’s McGee concerts. After just a few interactions they become very close friends and knew they should take this journey together. When he’s not managing Fux, you can find him shredding trails on his mountain bike or raging the front row at an Umphrey’s McGee show.
