Eccentric and original trio Too Many Zooz have announced they will be delivering their infectious style of jazz, dubbed ‘Brasshouse’, from the depths of New York City to the shores of Australia!
Too Many Zooz will be setting out on a seven date tour through November with shows in Brisbane, Mullumbimby, Sydney, Melbourne and Queenscliff.
This will be the first time Too Many Zooz have been to Australia. From the underbelly of New York City’s subway stations to gleaming stages alongside Beyoncé; Too Many Zooz have proven their unique take on music can spark a fire in anyone.
Baritone saxophonist Leo Pellegrino, trumpeter Matt Doe and drummer David ‘King of Sludge’ Parks met while attending the Manhattan School of Music and quickly set out to use their formal training in informal settings.
Taking to the subway’s of New York City, Too Many Zooz earned their reputation busking but it wasn’t long until their powerful noise took them to viral fame.
Thriving under the momentum of their quickly growing careers; Too Many Zooz have lent a hand in creating Beyoncé’s critically acclaimed album Lemondade as well as shared the stage with the pop superstar.
Their high-energy single and music video Bedford is an ode to the viral sensation video that sent them into the stratosphere.
Too Many Zooz’s manic music, dubbed “BrassHouse” by drummer King of Sludge, is an irresistible rocket that combines styles more far-flung than any international space station. As heard on the group’s EPs, F NOTE, Fanimals, Brasshouse Volume 1: Survival of the Flyest, The Internet, and LP, Subway Gawdz, Too Many Zooz creates a visceral vocal-free smack-to-the-senses. TMZ’s Brasshouse summons EDM, house, techno, and glitch, paired to the indigenous punch of Cuban, Afro-Cuban, Caribbean, and Brazilian Carnival rhythms, heightened by the dancing and saxophone soloing prowess of a bionic Pepper Adams. Like Nortec Collective mashed with Daft Punk by way of a mad sonic scientist, Too Many Zooz has conquered New York City—your headset’s resistance is futile.
