Bio

. Aged 17 - 28, Little Vegas and the Fuzz Parade are a band of cousins and brothers. Formed in 2006, the band have been playing live shows in Brisbane to swelling crowds and rave reviews. Recently Little Vegas & The Fuzz Parade were winners of the People’s Choice Award in the Wotnext filmclip competition hosted by Kram from Spiderbait, winning a $10 000 A & R Package with Todd Wagstaff. FASTERLOUDER REVIEW: @ The Zoo by Queen Nahs Next on the bill, with a powerhouse banshee vocalist and unyeilding guitar progressions, Little Vegas and The Fuzz Parade take the evening up a knotch or ten. Some definite influences are spotted in the musicianship, it’s all distortion and gain on the power chords, but done in a way that this punter very much enjoys alla BRMC, MAG, Brian Jonestown Massacre, early Jane’s et al. Spied as Brisvegasian indie offspring, Sabrina Lawrie of Tongue infamy, the influences and raucous vocal stylings harkening back to Joplin, PJ and other levels of ear tunnelling hardcore rasping coming out of this raven haired dynamo all make sense. Tracks Curse You Later, Happy to Know and Dare You are all belted out with gutsy aplomb, wild stage coverage and frantic beatings on a white tambourine. A slot on an xtreme sport soundtrack is not beyond the realms of reality for these guys in years to come.

Great work on this tune - the dirgy guitar, the multi-vocals, and a tops hook in the chorus. This song is a winner.
