Zoogma combines the sonic diversity and precision of a DJ with the excitement and immediacy of a five piece rock group. Known for their energetic performances and retina pleasing light show, the band consistently dishes out heavy-weight beat-driven dance parties across the nation. Sets are kinetic, combining live improvisation with carefully crafted beats and melodic textures.
With the release of their debut album, Recreational Vehicles, along with a relentless tour schedule, the five members have already added their unique voice to the live electronic-rock scene. Evolving in Oxford, MS, Zoogma's sound can be described as an eclectic fusion of Electronica, Rock, Jazz, World, and Hip-Hop. This blend of genres results in a musical experience that appeals to a range of audiences, with a sound that is refreshingly original yet steeped in the dance music tradition.
Sharing the stage with acts such as Perpetual Groove, Pnuma Trio, Big Gigantic, Eliot Lipp, Keller Williams, The New Mastersounds, and Ozric Tentacles, Zoogma is poised to captivate you!
Damn Right formed onstage at the legendary Baltimore venue, the 8X10 and immediately noticed a distinct improvisational chemistry. The trio (with then keyboardist Blake Mobley) spent the next few years refining their sound and making a name for themselves as a quality live act, performing all over the country with the help from occasional live and studio sit ins from improvisational wizards such as Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads), Marco Benevento, and Billy Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood) to name a few.
Presently Damn Right finds themselves as a Philadelphia based live/studio production trio that is making as many waves with their studio work as their live show. And its those roots in improv and experience gained through years of touring by founding members Tommy Bradel (drummer/producer/designer) and Johnny Fissinger (bassist/producer/vocals) mixed with the production wizardry of new addition FLOTE (instrumentalist/producer) that give their song writing and production such a unique sound. While pulling little bits from pretty much any genre while keeping a constant emphasis on capturing the free flowing emotion of live instrumentation, the band is bringing a new energy to both the live and studio settings. Their new brand of nostalgia drenched electronic composition is sure to please fans from all kinds of circles. And thats exactly what Damn Right is about
