“Seven years after its conception, Déjà Fuze’s album Some Sort of Green is finally set for release. Part of the delay was due to a geographic separation that fragmented the self-described “progressive electric fusion” group in 2012. But 2016 brought a reunion. And although the bandmates are writing new, “more layered and textured” music, they also felt compelled to complete their debut full-length recording, which features the older, road-tested tunes. “Though our perceptions have definitely changed, we feel like it has only made the music grow and mature,” says bassist and vocalist Keith Harry. “So, playing it now is really a new inspiration rather than trying to capture what once was.” A Jamiroquai tribute act opens the album release party — which also features live painting, local vendors and prizes — at Asheville Music Hall on Friday, Sept. 2, at 10 p.m. $10/$12. “

“Prog-electronic quartet Déjà Fuze formed in Buffalo one January, perhaps trying to get through the winter doldrums or to stay warm. Either way, the band (now based in Asheville) probably knows a thing or two about heating up a room. Or a set.”

“Asheville-based progressive, jazzy jam band Deja Fuze performed a quick set for passersby in front of the Flat Iron sculpture this afternoon. Drawing power from their van, the amplified trio of Jake Cavinder (drums), Joey Lewis (guitar) and Keith Harry (bass) performed roughly a half-dozen songs before moving on.”

“A hot new ensemble has been turning heads on the Buffalo jam-band landscape of late. Deja Fuze is mutating funk, soul, elements of jazz and progressive tendencies into a truly delightful new fusion of improvisation-heavy sound.”

“Funk-jazz-rock-jam fusion with a bite”

“Having been introduced to the music of Deja Fuze a few months ago, immediately I was mesmerized by their unique sound and style. The group’s writing is exceptional and the future will only be bright as their fan base continues to grow.”
