Too Many Zooz bring “Brasshouse” from the depths of New York to Australia in seven date tour

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.

“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.”

“Tevening he 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..”

ABOUT TOO MANY ZOOZ
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.
