Too Many Zooz can’t be contained – bring their infectious Brass House music to Crystal Bay.

Too Many Zooz took the stage at Crystal Bay Casino’s Red Room to play a very funky soulful mix of music that infectiously got the room dancing from the start. Leo Pellegrino, the group’s sax player welcomed everyone as he and Matt Muirhead, who handles the three piece’s trumpet and keys, started the evening off with a wonderful jam and then launched into their song, “Missy.” David “King of Sludge” Parks jumped in playing with a very unusual set of drums that were tied to his hips, which freed him up to move across the stage and keep the movement flowing while playing.

The combination of sounds centered around the Sax and the Trumpet as they performed their unique blend of Brass House. Pellegrino explained that they practiced and learned to play in New York’s train stations, then he immediately went into the most amazing saxophone solo, jumping onto the floor to bring the crowd’s reaction to a peak.

Cloudcore opened the evening up with his original electronic funk sound, with a hint of rock.
