September News 2014

 Our summer shows in Oregon were a BLAST! The best part was laying down the groove with some of our favorite NU SHOOZ alumni. The other best part was the people who showed up and gave us massive doses of LOVE. Thank you band for working so hard. Thank you audience for keeping the music alive. It couldn't happen without you.

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!



Five funky versions of the smash 80s hit "I Can't Wait" all together on one special edition CD. Buy physical copies at CD Baby, or download the entire maxi single HERE and receive the PDF booklet as a special bonus item!
