We're celebrating a BIG anniversary in June! Plus, we've got a bunch of summer shows coming up in June and July.
Forty years ago, what was happening? Jimmy Carter was President. The most popular baby names were Michael and Jennifer. And the World's inventors brought us the Walkman and Rollerblades.
AND a little band from Portland, Oregon was wobbling on baby legs. Tha’s right — JUNE 21st IS THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST NU SHOOZ GIG and we want to celebrate with you!
In response to the tragic shooting in New Zealand last week, some folks up in Canada started a campaign called #VisitAMosque. We looked up the closest mosque to our house and went over for Friday afternoon prayers. During the service, the overwhelming feeling was one of peace. In fact, the word Islam means peace. Afterward, several members of the mosque came over to talk with us and one of them was an old friend we've known for over 30 years. Everyone made us feel so welcome. A great experience — we recommend it!Read More
Every era has its beautiful moments. There have been many incarnations of the Nu Shooz band since our first gig back in the summer of 1979. We want to celebrate the fun we’ve had over the last five years with our current line-up. Thank you Gary, Fountaine, Margaret Linn, Tracey Harris, Haley Horsfall, Tim Jensen, Paul Mazzio and Johnny Riley for all your hard work and the joy you’ve brought to our lives onstage and off. Doing shows, rehearsing, and especially recording the ‘Bagtown’ album were a total blast.
This is a video we made of some of the highlights of the hang we’ve had since 2014.Read More
What an amazing year 2018 has been! Twenty two cities in the U.S. and Canada, and last month a show on the lovely island of Guam with our pals The Jets. (Thankfully Typhoon Yutu just missed us!) It's too early to know how next year is shaping up. In the mean time, the holidays are upon us! If you're looking for a gift for that Nu Shooz fan next door, we have a bright and shiny NEW MERCH STORE!

Wow. What a summer! So many cities in so little time. So many experiences to remember. We wouldn't trade a single moment. (OK, well, maybe the one where John forgets his guitar pedals in the rental car, or when Valerie had us returning the rental car to a different airport than the one we were flying out of 😬.) But hey we lived to tell the tale! And here’s some video to prove it!Read More

Whew, it's a brand Nu Year....2018, a tabula rasa, a blank slate waiting to be filled. Last year already feels like the distant past - much of it deserved to be swept into the dustbin of history. But there were good things too - golden summer evenings with our band mates playing for...you.Read More
