The Voyage is an up and coming jazz quartet hailing from Virginia's George Mason University and based in the DC Metro area. Originally formed by drummer Patrick Foit and saxophonist John Longbottom, the two ambitious young jazzmen went through a number of choices before finding the perfect musical match when guitarist Connor Holdridge and bassist Ben Rikhoff enrolled at George Mason in the fall of 2016.
The group is heavily invested in the bebop and hard bop tradition, passed on to them by their incredible GMU Jazz faculty. In addition, they carry with them the genre bending styles of today's top jazz artists, and other popular idioms like funk, fusion, and hip hop. The Voyage consistently finds new ways to interweave all of these musical directions into their original compositions and live performances.
