Bio 

The Dweezils were formed in 2007 after a year or so of Hippy and Doggett jamming free form 'avant garde' music inspired by the likes of Mr Bungle, Frank Zappa and the rest of the universe. Soon after, their first song "Who's Laughing Now?" was born. To this day it remains the only song by The Dweezils with vocals/lyrics. This single and the songs that soon followed attracted monster bass player Mike to the duo. After acquiring their third and final member, they set off to record their debut album “Welcome To Dweezland" in 2009. Now years later, The Dweezils have harnessed their own unique sound- a blend of different genres and time signatures varying from light jazz to funk to metal, all brought forward through a charismatic and charming swing that The Dweezils can call their own. This is reflected in their sophmore release “Take 2” which has a more mature, seasoned and stylish undertone. The Dweezils continue to surprise any critics who may have thought an instrumental band could not appeal the masses by attracting a wide variety of fans with many tastes in music.
