Entering 2017 with a BANG

Happy New Year!

First things first:

Betz - who has a severe tree nut allergy - did NOT die over the holidays. While the fruit cake and pecan pie was tempting, he managed to steer clear of any decadent death. 

Enzo - who has a severe caseload of unfinished home improvement projects - DID manage to build more of his backyard "garage," which will really be his music studio. Soon, and very soon, Betzenzo will have lots of recordings and videos to share in the new space.

Finally, Pete - who has a severe case of eating camera lenses (see our Instagram account) - did NOT manage to choke on home holiday videos, nor ruin any camera phones by adding gravy or cranberry sauce to make the glass and metal more delectable. 

Second, Betzenzo has a double cool thing to share: we'll be featured on TV for Mississippi Public Broadcasting's "Amped and Wired" music program, and it will be filmed as part of our gig at the Jackson Indie Music Week Festival! Check out our "Shows" tab for more info. We'll keep y'all posted on when the show airs. 

Be sure to also keep tabs on our upcoming shows as we know we'll be booking more across Mississippi and beyond. 2017, Betzenzo, bang!

Peace,

Betz 

 

Happy New Year | 2016 NPR Tiny Desk Contest

Happy New Year, y'all.

Betzenzo is looking forward to a musically productive 2016. Already we're working on new material, tightening old material, adding some trumpet here and there featuring our boy "Bryce Son," and reaching out to a slue of festivals and venues in the hope of landing some sweet shows.

We're also entering the competition ring. As we type, our video entry just uploaded for the 2016 NPR Tiny Desk Contest. We are super excited to have the opportunity to join the contest, have some fun, and share our music with folks across the county. Watch it here and wish us luck!

And feel free to leave us line or two, we'd love to hear from y'all: http://betzenzo.com/contact/

All the best to you in 2016, 

Betzenzo

Just Take Some Betz and Add a Little Laurenzo

Betzenzo!

Enzo and I are so stoked to share with you what we both love so much: music. And we couldn't be more excited to finally coordinate our actions and bring you the delicious fruits of our labor: our very own nutritious beats and fresh-squeezed melodies. 

Over Summer 2015, Enzo and I started playing again. We tightened songs that we have always played and learned some new material that I wrote while in grad school. We also schemed how to record and share our music, find more opportunities to perform live, and build a Betzenzo community of family, friends, and fans. 

We are on multiple social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Soundcloud. Even better, we now have our own home-base here at betzenzo.com. Please follow Betzenzo on all of these platforms and stay up-to-speed on upcoming live performances, music releases, and other cool news.

We also are excited to announce the release of our first recorded single The American Dream. I wrote it a few years ago and we have both polished it since. Enzo and I are super happy with how it came out of the oven. Special thanks go out to Clayton Gregory for mixing the new track. Please listen, listen, listen, then share, share, share! It's pretty scrumptious.

And no need to worry, Betzenzo will be releasing more singles before the end of the year. That way you can stream Betzenzo in the car, shower, laundromat, carwash, grocery store, kitchen, morning run, evening run...you get the idea. 

Anyways, enough typing for now. I think we left you with enough to do, so talk again soon!
