Grammy nominees NU SHOOZ filled the airwaves and dance floors of the '80's with their own brand of Soul and R&B. Known for their chart topping crossover hits, "I Can't Wait," "Point of No Return,' and "Should I Say Yes," the band gained a world wide fan base and a place in music history. Their smash hit “I Can’t Wait still plays somewhere on Earth every eleven minutes. After a 27 year hiatus, Nu Shooz has returned to the stage. Recently, Oregon Public Broadcasting featured the Shooz on their ART BEAT show. The band set up at OPB's studio for a concert featuring songs from their newest album in decades, ‘Bagtown.’ State of Wonder's, April Baer, interviews John Smith and Valerie Day, the heart of the band, about their past and current work, and kicks off the show from Portland’s Music Millennium.


The 'Sound of the 80s' lives on in films like 'The End of The Tour', '10,000 Saints’, 'Hot Tub Time Machine' (and more,) plus creative advertising like Target's 'Now This Is Plaid' Fall 2015 campaign featuring fun and funky stuff designed by Adam Lippes with 'I Can't Wait' produced by Questlove and sung by Iconapop. You'll also find us LIVE onstage, and gettin' our groove on in our latest release - 'Bagtown'. What keeps our music alive and kickin'? YOU! So thanks!
