FENTON COOLFOOT AND THE RIGHT TIME
Lead Guitar/Vocalist Gardner Fenton Goetze recalls the moment of conception of his alias "Fenton Coolfoot". Riding on a tour bus with Steel Pulse in Italy , the Tuscan countryside pulled the idea out of his mind. An animated, Funk-Soul-Reggae-Rock show lucidly producing a borderless, bad-ass, live-music theater. The idea bounced around the bus and a few years later, native Funkateers from San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and Marin County go Head to Head in High Quality HD Music production. Reggae-rockers, rock-n-roll heaters, crackin drums and harmonic colors, live as the sun and cool as the deep blue sea. A steady vein of early RHCP, Funkadelic, and Dub-Reggae run through the Funk/Rocksteady sound that he calls "Funksteady".
Fenton has shared the stage with a wealth of Bay Area Bands that exist or have existed over the years including Tropicalia/Salsa/Reggae band Mucho Axe, award-winning SF Latin/Reggae band Manicato,Clia Faussart of Les Nubians, Big Tings!, Gema de los Deseos (cumbia music), The Clean-Up Party Band, Mystic Man and Lakay, Afrorhythm, and the High Lonesome Sound System (country/dub/bluegrass). He has recorded with most of these groups including studio work with the popular Chicago-based Hip-Hop/Group Treehouse. Fenton is well known for his versatilty as a guitarist/ and charisma as a Funkateer/Wild-man. His songwriting is insipred by hard beat,rhythm, soul, good food, pretty girls, and rad shoes, in addition to tales of growing up and partying in the SF Bay Area, from Marin County to Oakland to San Francisco.
