It's been interesting around here, a hundred projects going on at once. Carpenters are upstairs rebuilding the shower while downstairs we're working with our friend Mariecella on choreography for the horn section.
Somewhere on the other side of town the finishing touches are being applied to our "nu" website by a guy named Daniel Webb (really - you can't make this stuff up!) and Tim Simpson is building a synth-guitar system so we can trigger piano sounds from a six string.
We have a summer-ful of shows coming up and a million details to attend to; costumes, charts, drum heads, wires, vans....Whoever said it takes a village was only partly right.
It takes a universe.
In the next few months you can visit the Nu Shooz planet and we hope you do; we'll be playing from 7 PM to 8PM at the Rose Festival in Portland OR with the Crazy 8s and Sir Mix-A-Lot on May 30th. Then the Freestyle Explosion Tour w/Stevie B., Taylor Dayne, Seduction, Debbie Deb and more...hits Fresno, CA on June 12th.
For more Tour Dates visit our SHOWS page. And while you're checking out the other pages on our newly revamped website, don't miss the ABOUT page. It comes complete with a groovy timeline that takes you from the bands humble beginnings as a four piece - through the heady days of the mid 1980s - to the current incarnation of the 8 piece live band. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be amazed that we lived through it all and are still ambulatory today. We'd love to hear what you think...so please let us know!
Hope to see you soon!
