The Mu’tet is led by three time Grammy Award winning saxophonist and composer Jeff Coffin. On tour with Dave Matthews Band since 2008 and with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones since 1997, Coffin strives to expand himself, his band mates and listeners with music flavored by his wide musical interests.  A passionate and curious player, Coffin is known to use guitar effects on his sax and flute as well as sometimes play two saxophones at the same time.

Jeff  Sipe has been playing with Coffin for many years and recorded on the Mu’tet CD Bloom. He is renowned for his mind bending drumming with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio, Phil Lesh, Leftover Salmon, The Jimmy Herring Project, and many others.

Kofi Burbridge, on keyboards and flute, brings his not-so-secret Weapons of Mass deFunkstruction to the Mu’tet.  Kofi is best known for his work with Derek Trucks Band and for being one of the most gifted improvisers on the music scene.  Kofi is featured on the latest Mu’tet release Mutopia.

Felix Pastorius, son of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, roots the Mu’tet on electric bass. He has been playing with the group since 2002 and is also featured on Mutopia. Felix recently toured the US with the Heavy Pets and is a gifted composer and a monster bassist.
