It was an honor and a pleasure for us to perform at the 8th annual Oregon Music Hall of Fame Induction Concert recently (the Shooz were inducted in 2007.) We shared the stage with the Norman Sylvester Band and the great Dr. Demento. Our friend and bandmate Tracey Harris sang a song that Jay “Bird” Koder wrote to honor those in the Oregon music community who passed this last year - two of whom were members of our Nu Shooz family back in the day - Billy Triplett (sound man extraordinaire) and Linda Hornbuckle (our back up vocalist and A #1 Soul Sister in 1986)  Billy and Linda were world class talents with huge loving hearts. We’re so grateful that they were a part of our musical lives.

Here’s a video clip of Linda Hornbuckle performing with Nu Shooz back in 1986. [And incidentally, Billy Triplett mixed this show] The video and sound quality’s not that great, but her energy is undeniable.

THE NU SHOOZ BAND @KINK's Bing Lounge!

Sept. 23, 2014 We just played our 3rd show with the reincarnated NU SHOOZ Band. Had a great time playing old favorites and songs from our latest release 'Kung Pao Kitchen.' It's so fun to have new Nu Shooz tunes to play! This one is a tour de force of funky back up vocal arranging (created by our own backup vocalist Margaret Linn.) Here's 'WOULD IF I COULD.' Enjoy!
