Too Many Zooz come to Australia

Eccentric and original trio Too Many Zooz have announced they’ll be joined by Australian legends Bobby AluReuben Stone and The Big Ilch on their Australian tour.

They have have also sold out their Melbourne show at Howler on Friday, November 24 and added an additional date at Howler on Tuesday, November 21.

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.

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 ‘Lemonade‘ 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.

Goose-stepping about the stage in dusky pink suit and dayglo hair like some mind-boggling fusion of Michael Jackson and Monty Python, honking accelerating dance beats, he gave surely one of the zaniest performances ever seen at a Prom. As a visual spectacle, and a demonstration of both musical and athletic virtuosity, it was extraordinary.

The true highlight of the evening were the outstanding solos of fushia-haired New York-based saxophonist Leo Pellegrino, choreographed to a tee in zebra-striped shoes, in Moanin’. His sheer physical agility while playing his instrument virtuosically was simply unlike anything I have experienced before. Unsurprisingly, he brought the house down..
