FUZZ GIGOLO: (Drogheda, Ireland) Are a 5-piece LO-FI “Rock n’ Roll” band that pen and perform original compositions * while packing a quartet+ of salubrious covers for a conventional mix? Born June 2013, from a multitude of retrospective influences and ideas (too broad to dilute?), they lineout as follows;


WHAT’S THE FUZZ: Likened to a cocktail of “Deacon Blue” & “The Beautiful South” with a twist of “Ian Dury” doing “a Joe Cocker”, shaken not stirred? and subsequently labelled as; refreshingly vibrant, melodically crafted, upbeat and contagiously energetic, oozing “Live Appeal” 

GIGOLO ROCK? “In it to Gig” and “hard at it” since March ’14, (with a busy schedule ahead) notching-up 90+ successful shows to date (North-West, North-East & East Coasts.......Ireland, that is! Don't think the real East and West Coasts can handle all the Gigilettes just yet.......)

Appearances include:

RADIOACTIVE: Releasing Debut EP "PUSH" (April '15) +same title SINGLE "PUSH" (June '15), enjoying featured airtime and media recognition via Reverbnation (reaching #10 in the alternative charts), RTE 2XM (Dermot Lambert), Dublin South FM (Keith McLoughlin), Dublin City FM (Dermot Rogers), Dundalk FM (Paddy Mac), i96FM (Damian Smyth), Cavan & IrishWeb TV and courtesy of Impact Promotions “Select Irish”, Variety Online (UK & Oceania), Radio Universal (Germany), +Unsigned Radio Rocks, 365 Radio Network & A100 (USA).

In 2016, Fuzz Gigolo were among the final 12 select artists, “HARD ROCK RISING”, Hard Rock Café and sound tracked for “THE ARTIST REVIEW” as part of the Irish Maritime Festival.

BEYOND AND INFINITY? Gaining in momentum and vigour with each performance, building a solid reputation and “sing-a-long” traveling fan base i.e. “The Gigolo Express” (AKA:) “The Jiggs” (just for internal fun?) have steadily become an identifiable noise, impossible to ignore …

‘The bigtime for you is just around the corner.'

They told me that first in 1952 - boy, it's been a long corner. If I don't hit the bigtime in the next 25 or 30 years, I'm gonna pack in the music business and become a full-time gigolo.
