The founding of Bazzookas (2009) is best compared to the discovery of gunpowder. The bang coming from that is like the music of Bazzookas; magical, explosive and epic! Now, 10 years later, they are still going strong, still impatient and eager, they do it 8 men strong, they make the crowd and themselves go crazy.
It is the energy that comes from the heart and soul of the band. Sparks are flying. It does not matter if one is male / female, young / old, beautiful / ugly, dog / cat, big / small, French, Belgian, German or Dutch, everyone starts dancing to the music!
The band is the band, the songs are the songs, so the place and audience make the difference. The bands interactive show and them clearly having so much fun on stage, causes a chemical reaction between these elements that results in an unique show time after time. 400 some gigs later, crowds still get blown away by the energy that Bazzookas throw at them. Everything with one goal in mind: Perform like their lives depend on it! Because it does!Read more
The Big Yellow Schoolbus in wich they tour through Europe is also a venue. They arrive, unpack, set up, and go all out! Musicians and audience both in the bus? Performing from the stage they built on top of the bus? Bazzookas can put up a show wherever the Bus can bring them! Fully self supported.
They come with experience. Festivals in Europe and Australia (Sziget, Taubertal Festival, Open Flair, Reperbahn Festival (8x), Pohoda, Rock 4 People, Colors of Ostrava, Concert@Sea, Zwarte Cross (3x), Parkpop, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Festival) and leading dutch venues such as Heineken Music Hall and Paradiso.
