Foxtrot Zulu – Sat, June 17th @ 9:30pm
It began innocently enough. Well, innocent may not be the best word, but it began nonetheless, in a smoky basement at the University of Rhode Island, circa 1994.
From an inauspicious start, Foxtrot Zulu began to develop a core sound that “brings together a kaleidoscope of influences to create their own unique sound. Rock, jazz, folk, funk and ska intertwine within the framework of highly melodic and finely crafted songs,” (Relix Magazine). At the same time, Foxtrot developed a strong and devoted local following at clubs throughout Rhode Island and small pockets in the northeast. The band’s highly energetic live performances began drawing bigger and bigger crowds of devotees as they expanded their touring range across the United States.
The band’s touring schedule and crowds increased, and Foxtrot found itself playing in front of larger and larger audiences at festivals and venues from Canada to California and all points in between. The album drew both critical and fan acclaim, garnering significant college radio attention. MSNBC, MTV, Rolling Stone, The Washington Times, The Boston Globe, Relix Magazine, JamBands.com, The Pharmer’s Almanac, The Providence Journal, The Providence Phoenix, Worcester Magazine, The Boston Phoenix and several other newspapers and magazines across the US wrote, not just favorably, but excitedly, about the originality of Foxtrot’s sound and the tenacity of their live performances.
