BAZERK is a hard-hitting, high energy band out of Los Angeles, CA. They present an edgy, raw Funk style with Rock riffs and Hip Hop beats. Formed in 2005, front-man Zu (Dewayne Phelps) received inspiration from the artist, Prince, who personally encouraged him to be unique and expansive with his Hip Hop style. Zu added the influence of Funk, Metal and Rock, and a whole new sound emerged.
BAZERK has performed all around Los Angeles, recording albums and making videos for YouTube. They have toured with such names as Prince, George Clinton, Ludacris, KRS One, 311, Wu-Tang, Fishbone, The Black-Eyed Peas, and One Size 0. They won seventeen Battles of the Bands, and have been on the stages of such Los Angeles venues as the House of Blues, Queen Mary, the Roxy Theater, the Viper Room, The Whiskey A Go- Go, Bar Sinister and Boardner’s. Their music is featured on numerous indie and online radio stations.
BAZERK just released their sixth album, “American Made Monster” which includes “What Y’all Know About It” featuring funk master, George Clinton, who stated that BAZERK was “A great original band” and DJ tracks by Mark Luv. Longtime friend, Angelo Moore will occasionally join BAZERK onstage; its always a treat to see the dynamic of their combined energies. Bazerk strives to raise the bar, to take each show’s energy to new heights and keep the fans hyper and asking for more. BAZERK fans make a great crowd and they know it, often bringing their own props and commentary to the performance!
