"TreeHouse Rock"

Treehouse Rock

Jan 4, 2007
Getting a record label established, up and running, and respected is often a long, arduous process involving a lot of hours, capital, exposure, and perseverance.

Who / What:
Treehouse Rock
Music Genre:
Treehouse Rock takes place from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Saturday, January 6, at Churchill's, 5501 NE 2nd Ave, Miami. Admission is $3 before 10:00 p.m., $5 after. Call 305-757-1807 or click www.churchillspub.com for more information.
But Andy Clavijo, guitarist for the Miami reggae-rock fusion band Jacuzzi Fuzz, has put together what could be deemed a little self-promotion for his new label, Treehouse Records.

Clavijo, age 24, along with business partner Tyffanie Herman, is hosting Treehouse Rock, a minifestival featuring some of the area's most popular reggae, ska, and alt-rock bands, to help spread the word about the new label. And he is already scouting warehouse locations for a new recording studio. Clavijo says bands that have jumped on board to play Treehouse Rock consist of artists who are serious about opening up avenues of exposure for local acts.

Besides Jacuzzi Fuzz, other performers on the bill include Miami bands such as Nimencia, a Spanish rock outfit; progressive hard-rock/metal group Dissever; ska band Three Beef Burritos; hard-rock group Fama Volat (formerly Killing Amethyst); indie alt-rockers Our Last Days as Children; and Burning Tree, a St. Petersburg-based rock-reggae band that will be filming parts of the festival for an upcoming documentary.

The show, says Clavijo, is being organized to help forge a bond among musicians interested in spreading Miami's indie movement to other parts of the nation. He hopes to have Treehouse Records open by March.

"Recording, for me, has been a good hobby, but I want to improve, get some new equipment, and get some engineers on board," Clavijo explains.

So for anyone who wants to help boost the indie in independent, this is a show for the little man. — Paul Catala - Miami New Times

"FIU review of our performance 9/15/05"

"...Up next was Jacuzzi Fuzz. Their excellent musicianship was obvious from the get-go. They somehow blended their reggae sound with blues and latin influences, and made it work beautifully. The Fuzz's lead singer, Andy Clavijo, had a great voice - one that almost channeled Sublime's lead singer Brad Nowell at one point. Of all the bands, Jacuzzi Fuzz had the most relaxed vibe, probably due to the genre of music they played. But their lax attitude didn't hurt the band's sound in the least. The crowd seemed to enjoy their performance a lot - people were jamming along and they got quite a few cheers at the end of their set..."

Jacuzzi Fuzz

When forming their band, Andy Clavijo and Jonathan Colorado wanted an unusual name to match their unique sound.

Their pick, Jacuzzi Fuzz, did the trick by getting some recognition for the guys. But after gaining a foothold in the local club scene, the buzz on Fuzz these days is more about their music than the name.

The three-man outfit has been attracting a steady fan base with a mix of reggae, grunge and rock that they've been performing since 2002. The group was kick-started by guitarist Clavijo and his high school buddy, Colorado, a drummer. Bass player Charlie LaBarca joined a year later.

Their blending of different genres isn't so strange: the members hail from diverse Miami and have a long list of influences that include the Beatles, Bob Marley and Nirvana.

With several demos and a six-song EP released, Jacuzzi Fuzz is preparing to head into the studio for its first full-length CD. Visit myspace.com/jacuzzifuzz.

Jacuzzi Fuzz is booked at 11 p.m. Saturday, March 3, at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807.

Jacuzzi Fuzz hails from the insanely diverse city of Miami, FL and plays a blend of Reggae and Rock with roots that recall Grunge, Rocksteady, and a time when good music ruled the airwaves. The overall vibe that the band stems from is the idea to make different music, different than the norm. Music with spirit and integrity, focusing on the ever-evolving sound of Reggae, fusing styles of rock, dub, blues, jazz and everything in between. Since their first show in December 2002, the band has released an EP and 6 different sampler/demos, played numerous shows, clubs, towns, backyard parties, up and down Florida.

The latest project the band has been working on is a much anticipated album set to be put out by TreeHouse Records, which they have started recording with an increased musicianship, a better collective musicality, more in-depth lyrics, and an open mind about recording techniques, layers, and improvisation. The release date is Fall 2008.

Jacuzzi Fuzz has had the pleasure of playing with these bands: Authority Zero, the Expendables, State Radio, the Slackers, Big D and the Kids Table, The Supervillains, Whole Wheat Bread, Damian Marley, and Against All Authority.
