If you’re in Oregon, you can catch the reunited Nu Shooz Band twice in November. We’ll be in Sheridan OR at the Monroe Events Center on November 8th (click HERE for tickets and more info) and at Jimmy Mak’s in Portland on Saturday, November 15 for TWO shows - one at 7:30 PM (click HERE for tickets) and one at 10:00 PM (click HERE for tickets.) The band features Nu Shooz alumni Gary Fountain on bass, Tracey Harris, Margaret Linn, and Haley Horsfall on vocals, Johnny Riley on drums, and the Shoo Horns Paul Mazzio and Tim Jensen performing songs from 'Poolside' through 'Kung Pao Kitchen.' Hope to see you there!
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.
