From busking at subway stations to headlining nationwide tours, “BrassHouse” trio Too Many Zooz will return to the Top Hat in Missoula on Sunday, September 29, 2019. LA-based funk quintet Thumpasaurus will open for TMZ.
The trio is saxophonist/dancer Leo Pellegrino, trumpeter Matt “Doe” Muirhead, and drummer David “King of Sludge” Parks. Together, they infuse EDM, house, and glitch elements with the indigenous rhythmic flavors of Latin America.
Too Many Zooz formed from humble beginnings, busking on subway stations in NYC. One particular busking performance at the Union Square station went viral in 2014, which led to rapid fan growth.
It wasn’t long before they began touring the country and recording more studio work. They’ve released several EP’s and dropped their first full length album Subway Gawdz in 2016. In September 2018, they released a revamp of their hit song “Warriors,” this time with a reedit from KDA and a vocal track from UK sensation Jess Glynne.
Their studio work is great, but it’s still hard to compare to their live show, and the band agrees. “I don’t think there’s any recording that can do a live performance justice,” reckons Matt. “You’ll see people of all different colors, creeds, genders, ages, sexuality at our shows. I really can’t find a constant between them…besides liking our music — haha.”
