The best damn funk band in the city! This unit is comprised of some of the best musicians in NYC, is like a cross between James Brown, Parliament/Funkadellic, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Milo Z is a band ready to break out, with the release of their third CD 'Sweet N' Nasty' featuring brand new singles geared towards radio, can't help it- shake your body dance/funk grooves, and grab your loved one, slow dance smooth sole. The Music for all emotions.
The band is refined in all aspects. Their array of catchy songs, top-notch musicianship, flashy outfits, dance steps, and stage presence has been noticed, making a massive impression gaining cult followings throughout the East Coast and parts of Europe.
Milo Z's biggest asset is the bands leader and frontman Milo Z himself. Milo was born and raised in the lower east side of Manhattan. At an early age he was exposed to the diverse cultural experiences the City has to offer giving Milo his own unique style, spirit, and attitude that has made him a legitimate frontman. Like James Brown- he orchestrates his band into tight polished grooves, he choreographs dance steps, has singles to cue different rhythmic patterns, changes, and horn hits. Like Mic Jagger and Steven Tyler, Milo dances and struts connecting his attitude, sexuality and sensuality to his audience. His connection with the audience is what is so impressive. The band makes the audience part of the show. 'Make them dance, make them sweat, leave them longing for more.' Is the bands motto.
Milo Z is currently is touring throughout the East Coast and Europe. Milo Z is house favorite at resort venues such as; The Wobbly Barn in Killington Vermont, The Snow Barn at Mt Snow Vermont, The Muse in Nantucket, Siros in Saratoga Springs, and the Atlantic Beach Club in Newport Rhode Island. Milo continues to sell out shows in Manhattan (Bands home ground) and has staked a claim in the New Jersey cover scene being the only original band to compete against cover greats; the Nerds and Big Orange Cone. Club owners attribute this to the bands hooky rock songs and jam oriented groovin funky/rock/sole repertoire- enhanced by the dance steps and audience participation (Call out and response) which has been part of Milo's forte. The band pulls out great versions of cover songs when needed. Milo Z is a prerequisite to those that need to dance, funk, sweat, and groove!
