Cold Fusion Arts / Bio

Cold Fusion Arts Project Cold Fusion Arts (CFA) suffers from a case of “Fusion Era Blowback.” Deeply rooted in the music and vibe of the fusion era, Cold Fusion Arts presents music based on instrumental conversation, exploration and personal relationship. Inspired by the Miles Davis “Bitches Brew” sessions, King Crimson, Weather Report, Return To Forever, Steps Ahead, Shadowfax and a host of other jazz/fusion bands. Cold Fusion Arts projects a unique blend of personality, performance, structure and art in music.

Cold Fusion Arts is a culmination of relationships that range from
Lockport in Western New York to Syracuse: John Betsey II – Drums (Syracuse) Chris Capiello - Bass (Lockport) Doug Egling – Saxes, Flutes, EWI (Albion/Rochester) Nick Harkola – Keys/Synth (Rochester) Mike Putnam – Guitar (Lockport)

CFA has amazed crowds large and small with their intense stage performances, musicianship and original compositions. Whether on a main stage or in a club, Cold Fusion Arts has the musicianship, finesse and professionalism to create highly improvisational performances that will leave all feeling inspired and refreshed.
