The Forefathers are a genre-bending Soul Jazz Organ Quartet based in The Hudson Valley, NY.
Their sound simultaneously captures classic 1960’s funk and jazz sounds or the Souljazz organ greats, while maintaining distinctly modern harmonies and hip shaking groove.
The band grew out of the friendship of founding members ben Senterfit, Josh Colow, and Sean Gallagher. All three were working at Senterfit’s Community Music Space music school at the historic Chocolate Factory in Red Hook NY.
Senterfit had spent years playing and touring with Heavy G & The Boogaloo Communicators, another soul jazz organ group based in Colorado, and wanted to get back into the groove.
The band began building their repertoire covering classic artists like Jack McDuff, George Benson, and Lou Donaldson, before venturing into their own original music.
After 2 years on hiatus due to some sort of pandemic, the band brought drummer Miles Sweeny in and are back on the scene.
