Fuzzcat, Vancouver's funk-filled reggae rock attack, has been exploding Western Canadian dance floors since 2006. Danceable rhythms, infectious lyrics, and provocative musical arrangements have earned Fuzzcat a growing reputation as one of Vancouver's most exciting emerging bands. Charismatic, high-energy performances draw comparisons to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Manu Chao and Sublime, but the band has diverse influences which range from hip-hop to punk. Fuzzcat regularly plays Vancouver's Media Club and Railway Club and has made four tours of the Rockies, playing Sun Peaks Resort Mountain Bike Festival, and venues such as The Drake in Canmore and The Rose and Crown in Banff. Fuzzcat also organizes their own shows at the Anza Club, the Railway Club, and the Sweatshop, playing sold-out nights with local favorites Freeflow, Los Furios, The Dreadnoughts, Mongoose, and many more. Fuzzcat has performed on Live from Radio Thunderbird Hell on UBC radio and on Radio Bandcouver on 102.7, Co-op Radio. In the spring of 2007, Fuzzcat released their first album, Impact!, with a sold-out show at the Media Club. Two songs from the album were featured in the 2007 documentary The Five Ring Circus, a Workless Party production about the 2010 Olympics. A Fuzzcat show is a high-energy, musically-diverse party, whether they rock with ska, funk, or punk bands, or during an acoustic Monday at the Railway Club. 24 Hrs. Newspaper in Vancouver describes Fuzzcat as having "...hooky grooves, catchy lyrics, and rug-cutting riffs." Mace from Ronatron.net writes, "Fuzzcat had their mighty legion of fans out of their seats with the quickness. Moreso than any other band of the night, Fuzzcat seamlessly shifted gears and tore through a plethora of genres, all the while mixing up a crazy mix of very tight and technical instrument solos with one-wheel-in-the-dirt jam sessions." This winter, get ready for the digital release of a new 4-song EP recorded at The Hive in Burnaby, B.C., and another Western tour in February.
