The Fuxedos


THE FUXEDOS are America's favorite apocalyptic lounge-punk-comedy-rock and roll-free jazz-storytelling-freakout-cinematic-what-the-hell? band, complete with costumes, props, and bizarrely humorous theatrics. Members' credits include such innovative bands and acts as Les Claypool, Stolen Babies, Faun Fables, Coheed & Cambria, Charming Hostess, Idiot Flesh, and Cirque du Soleil. The Fuxedos have shared stages with everyone from Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh to L7's Donita Sparks to industrial pioneers Nitzer Ebb to comedian Neil Hamburger. Read more on Last.fm
THE FUXEDOS are America's favorite apocalyptic lounge-punk-comedy-rock and roll-free jazz-storytelling-freakout-cinematic-what-the-hell? band, complete with costumes, props, and bizarrely humorous theatrics. Members' credits include such innovative bands and acts as Les Claypool, Stolen Babies, Faun Fables, Coheed & Cambria, Charming Hostess, Idiot Flesh, and Cirque du Soleil. The Fuxedos have shared stages with everyone from Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh to L7's Donita Sparks to industrial pioneers Nitzer Ebb to comedian Neil Hamburger. Past shows include Safari Sam's, Spaceland, and the Echo in Los Angeles; Tonic in Manhattan; Toronto's the Now Lounge; the Hemlock Tavern and Elbo Room in San Francisco; and Karla LaVey's Black X-Mass show in San Francisco. The band's sound and stage show are unique and defy easy categorization. Lately, they've been telling people that they sound like a cross between the Mothers of Invention, the Dead Kennedys, and John Zorn's Naked City, with the theatrics of Andy Kaufman and Alice Cooper and the surrealist, comedic storytelling of Mark Leyner thrown in for good measure. Although The Fuxedos are still at work on their debut record, they've been rapidly gaining notice through the power of their unique live performances. The band puts on a completely unusual, high-energy, theatrical, and hilarious show, underscored by creative, eclectic, and freakishly tight musicianship.

"One of the most amazing, entertaining, enthralling, unique, hilarious and inspirational bands I have ever seen...[vocalist] Danny was a musical maniac onstage, donning masks, using crazy props, dancing up an astounding storm, singing dynamically, stomping, prancing, being riotously funny and crazed and mindblowing." -- Paul Zollo, Sr. Editor, "American Songwriter" magazine; author, "Conversations with Tom Petty" and "Songwriters on Songwriting" “The band incorporates free jazz, comedy, lounge, freakout rock, punk and everything under the sun in its hysterical live act.” -- Los Angeles Times "The best frontman I've ever seen." -- Rob Schrock (Music Director, Burt Bacharach) "...The tremendously talented and insane band, The Fuxedos...their live shows combine brilliance and chaos with almost hallucinatory visual stimulation...always an adventure..." -- Keyboard Magazine "Thank you for one of the most engaging and completely wrongly fantastic shows I can remember...You're my new favorite band in LA!" -- Shana Nys Dambrot (Editor, Flavorpill LA) "You guys were great! You brought the house down." -- Neil Hamburger "The Fuxedos are out of this world and are unlike any other L.A. band. Ever.

Go see them. You'll be happy you did." -- Blue Railroad magazine "If Bertolt Brecht had a jam session with John Philip Sousa, Einsturzende Neubaten, and Howdy Doody on 'Saturday Night Live' back in '75, it might sound like The Fuxedos' 'Jellybean.'" -- East Bay Express (Oakland, CA) "I loved the Fuxedos show...tight music, and you were really in fine form. Congratulations on a truly unforgettable show! -- Myles Boisen, guitarist/producer/engineer (Tom Waits, John Zorn, David Lynch, Nina Hagen, Fred Frith) “The freshest, craziest thing I've seen in ages.” -- Reverend Al Ridenour (Founder, L.A. Cacophony Society) "The Fuxedos combine theatrical insanity with wonderfully addictive melodies!" -- Rock N Roll TV "I'm a huge fan of you guys!" -- Jai Young Kim (Secret Chiefs 3) "Stunning acrobatics...so much energy that I spent several hours contemplating just what specific proteins the man was chomping on...There was not a single part of his body that did not move...He undulated his ass in a way that even I, a male heterosexual, had to admire...filled me with such joie de vivre that I found myself running up to the stage, jumping up with a raised hand and a mighty roar..." -- Ed Champion, the lit-blog co-op Read more on Last.fm.
