Buzz Deluxe are high energy Rock 'n Roll with nods to Swing, Punk, Blues and everything in between.

Biography

From the backwoods parties and bonfires of swamp-land Florida, Jesse Dale showed off his Chuck Berry licks any chance he got across the country and eventually ended up in Toronto, Canada where he started the first version of Buzz Deluxe with friends from work.
They started playing regular gigs in 2004 as a three-piece Swing Punk band, playing anything from Rock, Blues, Swing, and Surf before eventually developing their own unique combination of the genres. After many attempts, Jesse finally got Kerry out to play as a last minute fill-in on drums and she turned out to have the sound and style that the music needed. They currently travel all over as a two-headed rock n roll spectacle sharing stages with all sorts of genres.

With support from Falsetto Records (MTL) they are now piecing together the sum of their experiences and making high energy Rock 'n Roll with some mysterious twists and turns.

To date they have accomplished a slew of amazing feats for an unsigned band, from captivating crowds with their strange but hip-shaking live show (where more than once the audience testimonial of swearing they heard more than one guitar was spoken) to being featured on multiple network television appearances and headlining high-profile stages and festivals on numerous occasions all over the world.  This includes Canada, USA, Australia, and New Zealand with many more countries in their sights.

Set List

We play many different lengths of shows and very rarely have a preset setlist. Depending on what we think the crowd will like we can choose from our over 4 hrs of originals and covers that we have learned/written over the years. And although we prefer to play all originals, we do our best to keep up with any requests.
