Biography: The Fuzz Band
The FUZZ BAND is unparalleled in the music industry. The nine-member group has an innovative sound that fuses several genres of music to create an intriguing resonance. Comprised of classically trained instrumentalists, as well as accomplished jazz musicians and vocalists, The FUZZ BAND has a style all its own. Their sound is a fusion of hip hop, jazz, R&B, soul, alternative and classical music that transcends traditional borders of artistic
expression. The band, which has performed together since 1997, calls this sound a blur; thus the name "Fuzz".
Many of the bands' fans have described their vibrant and versatile range of music as a spontaneous overflow of emotion. This sound can be heard on their recently released "Without Boundaries" album, a 13-track compilation released on the Peach Fuzz Entertainment, LLC label. The Norfolk, Va. based band has opened for platinum-selling artists such as Outkast, Jill Scott, Morris Day and The Time and Alicia Keys. The Fuzz Band has also performed at fundraisers for dignitaries and entertainers, including Virginia's Gov. Mark Warner, stellar basketball player Allen Iverson and NFL star Bruce Smith.
R&B artists such as Bilal, Faith, Blue Cantrell and Scott have all performed to music recreated by the group at "Fuzzy Wednesdays"-a weekly "open mic" event. Over 30,000 patrons have partaken in the "Fuzzy" experience since its creation in 1997. The venue provides a space for poets, performers and lyricists to express themselves in a culturally enriching atmosphere. The FUZZ BAND is the core part of this event, providing the soundtrack to many of the artists.
There is no one-way to describe The FUZZ BAND or the music that they play except to say that the energy is endless and the sound is astounding. "The FUZZ BAND is great, their sound is amazing," said ABC News. The band is committed to restoring the integrity of music, and has proven this by their performances and by sharing their gifts to youth through fun and entertaining musical clinics.
