Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Alpha Transit is an all-original jam band that takes the usual elements of funk, rock, jazz, and blues and the not so usual elements of electronic and dance music and puts them in the blender with a double shot of improvisation.
Transit Comes Alive!, the newest addition to the Alpha Transit catalog, is the first of a two part series of releases recorded 100 percent live at the Milwaukee Ale House during the summer of 2008. The titles of these recordings pay tribute to the seemingly distant era when the record buying masses encouraged and supported their favorite groups extending and improvising on their songs in the live jam format. This recording and the soon to be released Made In Milwaukee showcase the group doing what they do best; steering the music through the maps of their unique compositions, fusing white knuckle improvisations with relentless grooves, and taking the entire audience along with them on the mind-boggling journey.
Alpha Transit began as trio in October of 2003 with Adam Berzowski on keyboards, Geoff Howard on bass and Tim Rush on drums. To complete their sound, virtuosic guitarist Kirk Tatnall was added in October of 2005, bringing his catalog of compositions into the fold of their already strong base of music. Their versatility as well as detailed attention to balance and tone have given them a quickly growing, diverse fan base that continues to multiply.
