In the music business, melodically based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Virginia, the dedicated musicians that investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as The Fuzz Band.
These are their stories…
This eight-member unit, whose sound is a fusion of Urban & Rock music, met and formed while attending Hampton University in 1997. Originally created as the house band for Fuzzy Wednesday, Virginia’s longest running open mic, the band soon recognized a higher calling. Performing first at local venues and colleges, the band began writing, performing, and recording their own music; releasing Without Boundaries, Collision, Change, and Change of the Guards.
Several years, albums, and three USO tours later, the band can count Iraq, Kuwait, UAE, Africa, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, Jordan, and England as second homes where they experienced bombings, medical emergencies involving IVs, and pseudo kidnapping & ransom scenarios all in the name of music.
The Fuzz Band has been featured in the Hollywood Issue of Black Enterprise Magazine, and has received nods in RollingStone Magazine for their Middle Eastern tours of duty, and in Spin Magazine for their Chrysler Jeep Campaign. The band was most recently flown to Amsterdam and NYC to be the live entertainment at Tommy Hilfiger’s annual Holiday parties.
The band has rocked shows at colleges across the nation, rubbed elbows with the corporate elite, and has performed with artists such as Outkast, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill, and Alicia Keys.
Releasing their third full-length studio album in the summer of 2009, the band’s sound continues to evolve. Stay tuned…
