ShwizZ is cast of very skilled extraordinary characters grooving hard out of the Northeast. This enormous sound is best described as a melting pot of hard progressive rock and colorful funkadelic jazz. With an incredibly diverse catalogue of unique original music and a contagious incomparable energy, ShwizZ is celebrated for their signature high octane performances that have been garnering fans everywhere they perform. 

ShwizZ has been making a ruckus on the Northeast festival circuit. Summer of 2013 boasted tremendously note worthy appearances at RockNRoll Resort, The Big Up Music Festival, Opple Topple, Gathering at The Great Divide, and of course Catskill Chill Music Festival. ShwizZ has become part of Chillfest allure over the past 3 years, being at the epicenter of the mythical late night cabin jams, and taking the show to a whole different level at The Chill.

The group has recently embarked on a weekly residency at Garcia’s at The Capitol Theater in Port Chester NY, dubbed Electric Eclectric Tuesdays.  ShwizZ has shared bills and stages with acts such as Umphrey’s McGee, Primus, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Particle, Dopapod, Jimkata, Kung Fu, Consider The Source, FiKus, Turkuaz, TAUK, Dr. Fameus (Allen of The Disco Biscuits), Sam Kininger Band, Melvin Seals & JGB, Turtle Soup, and many many more.


A devotion to the beat that combines jam-rock sensibility with a deep pocket and thoughtful melodies; we are on a shameless mission to entertain the mind, body and spirit. Rooted in Burlington, VT, regularly playing local venues and festivals, we are steadily making our way beyond the state’s borders to spread some fun(k) down below.

Soft Cactus

Massachusetts-based, Soft Cactus, combines raw rock energy and intimate songwriting while adding textures of Jazz, Blues, Pop, R&B, Reggae, and Soul. Since forming in 2011 as freshmen at The University of Massachusetts Lowell, they have been persistently perfecting their craft and building a buzz. Looking to entertain, Soft Cactus brings unparalleled intensity and endurance to every live show while still focusing on expressing creativity and variety.
