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 more than a 27 year hiatus, Nu Shooz is BACK performing hits old and Nu with their 9 piece band - Shoo Horns and all.

I’ve had the pleasure to book and work with the band Nu Shooz many many times over the years. They perform professionally and put on an awesome show. I look forward to working with them again.

Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts draws 25,000 people every year to a multimedia Art/Music extravaganza. Nu Shooz was our headliner, and I was glad I made that choice. They are a unique and well known act, and everyone has heard their music somewhere on the planet every eleven seconds. They were easy to work with through the whole process of booking, contracting, and scheduling, drew a large crowd and kept everyone dancing the whole set. As the promoter of this event for the last decade, I feel like Nu Shooz has been our best National Act!
— Danny Reed Schauffler, promoter for the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts
Top talent and amazing entertainers, Nu Shooz! They brought it to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame Induction Concert and all were on their feet- dancing! From their hits and soon to be hits, this is not a formula, it’s real.

There could be no better way to celebrate my sister’s birthday, my husband’s birthday and my 65th birthday than to have Nu Shooz play in my sister’s party room garage for 75 of our closest friends. Valerie, John, and the entire band played at least a 2 hour concert and made this seem so special for us. We danced, sang along to ‘The Point of No Return’ and just when they were about to end ‘I Can’t Wait’ the electricity blew on the sound system! Without missing a beat, Valerie started the crowd clapping and we all finished the song and the evening together. I highly recommend booking Nu Shooz for your private event, for any reason - and you don’t have to wait until your 65. Thank you Nu Shooz! There ain’t no party like a Nu Shooz Party cause a Nu Shooz Party don’t stop!
