On October 18, we welcome, The Fuzz Band! The Fuzz Band, whose sound is a fusion of Urban & Rock music, met and formed while attending Hampton University. The nine-piece band is comprised of 3 vocalists, drums, percussion, keys, guitar, horn and bass, was originally created as the house band for Fuzzy Wednesday. Spanning over 20 years, it is Virginia’s longest running open mic. The band soon began collaborating on original music and developing their own sound. Performing first at local venues and colleges, the band soon released Without Boundaries, followed by Collision, Change, a Change of the Guards and a self-titled EP. Several years, multiple albums, and three USO world tours later, the band continues to shine.
Locally, the band has won multiple awards as Best R&B, Best Live Performer, and Best Song & Album recipients. Nationally, The Fuzz Band was featured in the Hollywood Issue of Black Enterprise Magazine, and has received nods in Rolling Stone and in Spin Magazine for their Chrysler Jeep Campaign.
