Too Many Zooz
Too Many Zooz
With the snowballing trend towards electronic instrumentation in music, it's easy to forget where it all first started: on street corners with real instruments, playing for tips, that is until you've heard Too Many Zooz. Too Many Zooz is a three-piece "BrassHouse" band comprised of Matt Doe, Leo P, and King of Sludge. The group found their voice playing for change on New York's subway platforms, honing extremely danceable rhythms and melodies.

Named one to Billboards' Top 25 Next Big Sound, thanks in part to a video of one of their frenetic subway performances was posted to Reddit and went viral to the tune of over 2.2 million views, and in a very short time amassed a large fan base. Additional videos have millions of views, and Facebook likes over 420,000.

This is all for good reason, too. Their music is infectious, impossible to stay still listening to. As old-fashioned as their musical approach is, – if one were to call live instrumentation old fashioned – the structure of their songs follows very closely to any hit dance music track, hence their self-prescribed "brass house" genre. The drums provide a rhythmic base, the saxophone a bass line and the trumpet serves as the melody, guiding you to a gradually increasing, precipitous crescendo, where all the instruments come together only "drop" from a dizzying height, clashing together in an explosive climax of sound. Too Many Zooz will definitely force you to reconsider the way you think about jazz music. Don't just take our word for it, Beyoncé APPROVES!

TOO MANY ZOOZ have shared the stage with Beyoncé, KASKADE, Beats Antique, Galactic and more.

Red Rose
Red Rose is a three piece live looping Space-Funk/House/Trip-Hop/Dub trio from Madison, WI. The core ensemble consists of Producer and Founder, Captain Smooth, along with Bassist and Audio Engineer, K-Dub and Guitarist Funky Fresh.

Red Rose builds every groove with live loops from the ground-up. They integrate the live electronics and nonstop set, similar to a DJ, with live instruments. Their show is a continuous journey of music with each song flowing seamless into the next, they design and change songs (genres) in real time. Each show is different and you are guaranteed to never hear a song played the same twice.

They combine live loops, heavy dance beats, smooth keyboards, silky bass, and funky guitar to make an incredibly full sound with endless capabilities. Their sets are filled with solid improv, live compositions and a projection show.


A Red Rose is a symbol of love and affection. A love of creating music! Red Rose strives to put their heart and soul into their music and this truly shows in their recordings and live show!
