Too Many Zooz Are Mind-Blowingly Unforgettable

“Unforgettable” means you always remember a particular person or event or thing. So describing our first exposure to Too Many Zooz at Suwannee Hulaween 2018 as “unforgettable” would be entirely accurate:

The one and only Lee Rissin was gushing pre-set about Too Many Zooz. Now I know why. They were brilliant, similar in concept to Moon Hooch, with Leo P. on baritone sax, Matt Doe on trumpet, and King of Sludge on marching bass drum and percussion. They call their music brasshouse, partly in honor of the time they spent in New York City subways honing their craft.

They’re primed for their New Year’s Eve show in Boston with Twiddle before  hopping on Jam Cruise. When everybody tumbles off the MSC Divina, the trio will head to The Social in Orlando and Crowbar in Tampa for the beginning of a month-long tour up and down the East Coast and into the Midwest, including a number of shows with Birocratic.

In May, TMZZ invade Europe for 19 shows in eight countries, and you can count on them being busy during the main summer festival season. Too Many Zooz? We’d say: NOT NEARLY ENOUGH!
