Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit

Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit is an experimental jazz rock group originally founded by Col. Bruce Hampton. The band gained popularity in the Atlanta club scene in the early 1990's and went on to tour with the first H.O.R.D.E. Tour. The lineup during those years was Hampton, Oteil Burbridge, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Sipe, Matt Mundy, and Count M'Butu. Jeff Mosier and Charlie Williams were both members of the band during the early years, but left to pursue other endeavors. Although the band was never commercially successful, their combination of bluegrass, rock, Latin, blues, jazz, and impeccable chops became a template for future bands.
