Minor Element is an all-instrumental jazz fusion band out of West Michigan. The band was founded by Keyboardist Brandon Fitzpatrick in 2012 which originally started as a Jazz trio. Over time, the band started to add different members to the group, continually chasing a bigger sound. Being driven by other musicians is always a key to growth. Having major influences from artist like Snarky Puppy, Cory Henry, Robert Glasper, Shaun Martin, and Robert “Sput” Searight forced growth out of the band. As they grew in their musicality, so did their band, their musical taste, and distinct sound. Their sound is inspired by Jazz, Rock, Gospel, Classical, Fusion, and anything they can draw inspiration from. Not only can you find a groove, but you can also hear the complexity in the original compositions. Now Minor Element consists of 9 members. They have a very diverse group of musicians that come from all sorts of musical backgrounds and experiences which is part of what makes their sound so unique. From performing along side The Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra to playing in small pubs, Minor Element is sure to stun the room.
