Cosmic Dust, also known as the Cosmic Dust Fusion Band, is an instrumental jazz band formed in 1990 by Jim Templeton. The band was the first well-known group that guitarist Myles Kennedy played in. The original lineup consisted of Jim Templeton on keyboard, Gary Edighoffer on saxophone, Clipper Anderson on double bass, Myles Kennedy on guitar, and Scott Reusser on drums. Kennedy eventually left the band and went on to become the lead vocalist/lead guitarist for a jazz fusion group called Citizen Swing and later an alternative rock band called The Mayfield Four. Kennedy is now fronting and playing guitar for the hard rock/alternative metal band Alter Bridge, which he helped form with Creed members Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips, and Brian Marshall in 2004, and is also the lead vocalist for Slash's solo band on tour.

Cosmic Dust has released two albums, Journey in 1991 and Step Right Up! in 2008. Both albums are carried by Peterson Entertainment, Llc (www.petersonentertainment.com)
