The infectious sounds that started in the tunnels of the New York subway system will soon fill The Sinclair as NYC’s Too Many Zooz head to Cambridge. Tickets for the May 11 show go on sale March 17 and can be purchased right here.
The self proclaimed “brass house” band quickly got the recognition they deserved after a 2014 post on Reddit shared a video of the group performing at the Union Square subway stop in New York City. Since then the video has received millions of view, the band has made Billboard’s “Next Big Sound” chart and they even shared the stage with Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks at the 50th annual CMA Awards.
As the band explained to Vancouver’s Winnie Cooper in 2014 — soon after receiving their stardom — their non-electric style of music is “liberating.”
“People sometimes look confused when they first look at us,” the band told Cooper. “It’s pretty cool to be a part of something that’s completely new and different, and yet being proven daily to be something that people like and continue to support.”
The trifecta of groove — Matt Doe (trumpet), Leo Pellegrino (baritone sax) and David "King of Sludge" Parks (drums) — may have gotten their start as a group serenading the subways and street corners of New York, but now Too Many Zooz is playing all across the globe, giving the people of the world their sweet, sweet beats. However, the band hasn’t let their fame take them away from their roots, and they still occasionally make appearances in the subways and even live stream via Facebook.
After releasing their first full-length album, Subway Gawdz, last year, the band is ready to hit the ground running for 2017.
