ROCKS OFF Concert Cruise Series, New York, NY
21 years and over
An original eclectic blend of rock, jazz, latin & world grooves. BuzzUniverse features smoking horns and a rock-solid rhythm section. Since 2003, the band has been performing and tearing up clubs and large festivals throughout the northeast and has released three captivating albums. Described by jambands.com as "addictive & hip-grinding," BuzzUniverse has enlightened loyal fans with brilliantly crafted songs, incredible vocal harmonies and ferocious live energy. Natives of Elizabeth New Jersey, BuzzUniverse aims to spread their unique sound and positive vibe far and wide!
Following the release of their 2006 album, birdfishtree, BuzzUniverse got nationwide attention as Sirius/XM Jamon put their song Lovelight Babylon into heavy rotation. They then won Relix Magazine's national JamOff competition and were nominated for "Best New Groove" at the 2008 Jammy Awards in New York City. BuzzUniverse followed these accomplishments with performances at Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes and many other prominent music festivals. They also opened up for moe. at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park New Jersey, and returned to the Stone Pony to perform there on New Years Eve for the second year in a row. BuzzUniverse is continuing a rigorous schedule of club and festival appearances in 2009, while working on their third studio album, coming soon!More exploratory than a pop band but not quite a jamband, BuzzUniverse has demonstrated a unique approach in getting their music heard. They took a "play all day to whoever is passing" gig at New York's Chelsea Piers for the past two summers; they've financed their own free performances in New York City Parks; they've even managed to get a mention in the New York Post's infamous Page Six gossip column. In 2007, BuzzUniverse were also invited into the prestigious "Leeway's Homegrown Music Network", for CD distribution, joining the ranks of a select group of other great bands like Umphrees McGhee, Garaj Mahal, The Slip & Yonder Mountain String Band, among others.
