Too Many Zooz w/ Bella’s Bartok at Pearl Street Clubroom @ Pearl Street Nightclub
Mar 22 @ 8:30 pm – Mar 23 @ 12:45 am

Too Many Zooz is a brass-house trio based in New York City, New York, consisting of Leo Pellegrino (baritone saxophone), Matt Doe (trumpet) and David “King of Sludge” Parks (drums). They gained fame when a video of one of their subway performances, recorded by a passer-by at the Union Square station, went viral on YouTube in March 2014. Teaming up in mid-2013, the trio started busking together that August at various stations in the New York City Subway in their self-defined genre – brass house. By January 2015, the band was booked on a tour of theatres and small clubs across the United States. They continue to perform on road trips and played backup for Beyoncé for her televised CMA Awards performance on Nov. 2, 2016 in Nashville, Tenn.
