Justice League

BandJazzFunk

Justice League is a tight, funky, guitar-based instrumental trio. Built on inspiration from Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix, this band keeps it real, danceable and interesting to all types of listeners.

Biography

Justice League was founded in 2007 but was built on the long-standing musical relationship of Scott Newell and Reggie Dennis, who've played together since 2000. Calvin "Manny" Carter is an amazingly gifted drummer with many years of professional experience. He's an explosive player with lightning-quick reflexes, incredible chops and a great ear for improvisation and spontaneity.

Our influences include Miles Davis, John Scofield, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Frisell, Wayne Krantz, Steve Coleman, Funkadelic, Chic, The Police, Bob Marley, Prince, Cameo and more. When we write tunes we don't talk about styles or categories, we just write them based on what we've absorbed over our lifetime. Rock, jazz, funky, pop music, reggae; they're all in there.

What sets us apart is our accessibility to fans. We take time between sets, and before and after the gig meeting and hanging out with fans.
