Music lovers at Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama were treated to an incredibly fun show on January 11th as Too Many Zooz, a trio hailing from New York City, performed. The group, consisting of Leo Pellegrino on saxophone, Matt Doe on trumpet, and David "King of Sludge" Parks play what they call "Brass House", an infectious style of instrumental music that can be traced back to several other genres.
It is hard to describe "Brass House" in just words because, well, were no words sung during this performance by Too Many Zooz. It was an entirely instrumental show featuring the three musicians and their instruments. They incorporated elements of jazz, funk, and many other styles while also busting out dance moves and other grooves to get the crowd really into the set. The group had the audience dancing and jamming all through the night.
What I'm trying to say is that Too Many Zooz put on quite a stellar show, and I'm really glad I got to witness it. It was my first show to photograph in 2018, and it was definitely a top notch way to get out of the gate for this year. The ace lighting of the show also contributed to an overall great evening at the venue. I even met a couple of cool people in between acts. If those two people are you, well, drop me a line and let's stay in touch!
