NU SHOOZ news

Can you believe it's 2015?

That sounds like something out of Star Trek or Star Wars, or...Dancing with the Stars! Weren't we supposed to have flying cars by now?

It's only January, but 2015 is already shaping up to be a fun year. Once again, we'll be appearing with our 80's pals on the Super Freestyle Explosion Tour. Miami, Boston, San Jose, and Fresno are already confirmed.

And if you happen to live in Oregon you'll have a couple chances to catch the full-on Nu Shooz BAND! We'll be playing at the Portland Rose Festival on May 30, and the Lake Oswego Arts Festival on June 27. More dates are in the works.

Finally, we just started work on a nu album, our 7th. From time to time, we'll post little video vignettes here to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process. No release date yet. Can't rush these things.

So, that's all for now. Happy 2015!
Come to think of it, maybe it's a good thing that we don't have flying cars.

See you soon...

Valerie and John

THE NU SHOOZ BAND @KINK's Bing Lounge!

Sept. 23, 2014 We just played our 3rd show with the reincarnated NU SHOOZ Band. Had a great time playing old favorites and songs from our latest release 'Kung Pao Kitchen.' It's so fun to have new Nu Shooz tunes to play! This one is a tour de force of funky back up vocal arranging (created by our own backup vocalist Margaret Linn.) Here's 'WOULD IF I COULD.' Enjoy!
