ShwizZ, a one of a kind duo from Nyack, NY will release their latest album, ShwizZ II on Tuesday, June 4 on Spotify and Apple Music, with the single “Boss Hog,” a speedy, Zappa-esque jam brings to mind CBDB, with a touch of prog throughout.
The duo, Andy Boxer (Drums/Vocals) and Ryan Liatsis (Guitar/Keys/Vocals), draws influence from classic progressive artists including Frank Zappa, Weather Report and Steely Dan. They consistently put their musical abilities to the test, delivering high intensity, musically immersive live performances. By using their skills in the studio, ShwizZ was able to recreate the feeling of listening to a record, live, in front of your face.
Best described as a melting pot of funk and progressive rock, ShwizZ’s original sound will be sure to put a smile on your face. The band’s variety and depth allow for twists of improvisation and spontaneity with technical prowess and musical complexity.
Over the years the group has shared bills with many notables including Jeff Beck, Primus, Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Kung Fu, Particle, Dopapod, Consider The Source and more.
