ZOOGMA combines the sonic diversity and precision of a DJ with the excitement and immediacy of a four-piece rock group. Known for their energetic performances and retina pleasing light show, the band consistently dishes out heavyweight beat-driven dance parties across the nation. Sets are kinetic, combining live improvisation with carefully crafted beats and melodic textures. With the release of their debut album, Recreational Vehicles, along with a relentless tour schedule, the five members have already added their unique voice to the live electronic-rock scene. Evolving from Oxford, MS, ZOOGMA’s sound can be described as an eclectic fusion of Electronica, Rock, Jazz, World, and Hip-Hop. This blend of genres results in a musical experience that appeals to a range of audiences, with a sound that is refreshingly original yet steeped in the dance music tradition.
