ABOUTJet Edison has emerged from the rich music scene of Colorado as a top rock/fusion band on the road today. In only a few years, the band has honed their unique sound into something entirely their own, with each member contributing a wealth of influences from modern rock, '70s prog, old school funk, and '80s dance music. Borrowing from so many styles, their original songs are technically crafted with thoughtful lyrics and talented improvisation, and together they create a sound as interesting and imaginative as it is solid and danceable.
Word of their captivating, high-energy performances has spread, gaining Jet Edison recognition throughout the Rockies and into the Midwest. At home, the group was recently nominated as Colorado’s Best Rock Band in the "Jam/Improv” category for the second year in a row by a popular Denver publication. With an ever-expanding tour regimen, JE has been billed with many top national artists including Particle, Kung Fu, 7 Walkers feat. Bill Kreutzmann, The Revivalists, Orgone, The Heavy Pets, Cornmeal, and Marco Benevento, and has played with members of Colorado's most established bands, a few being Leftover Salmon, The Motet, Elephant Revival, and The Phix. The band has also performed at numerous festivals, such as ShoeFest, Denver Day of Rock, Phibstock, Colorado's famous NedFest, and more.
The future has much in store for Jet Edison, as the band hits the studio to record and release a brand new EP, due out Spring 2014.
