Buzzed & Loaded is a multi-award nominated band from Seattle. In 2021 Music Industry experts picked them out of 54,000 submissions at the largest Global Independent Music Awards (JMA's) as finalist for Album of the Year, Rock Single of the Year, and Buzz & Rob were both nominated as Musicians of the Year. In 2022 the band repeated the honor of Album of the Year and all three members were chosen as finalists for Musicians of the Year at the JMA's. They were also nominated for Band of the Year, Emerging Artist of the Year, Male Singer of the Year, and Songwriters of the Year at the International Singer Songwriters Association Awards in 2021, and were nominated in 7 categories in 2022 ending up as Finalist for Band of the Year and Single of the Year (Bad Penny). Needless to say many bottles of hooch were consumed in mass celebration of these unexpected honors.
AND NOW HERE'S HOW HARRY MET SALLY, I MEAN HOW THE BAND CAME TO BE...
Once upon a time there were two Internationally Recognized bands (Voodoo in Blue from Australia and Fluffer from Seattle) that hit it off like a john and a discount hooker on payday. Things were so good they needed to create a new musical partnership and Buzzed & Loaded was formed between Buzz Brown and Rob Trosino.
Needing a bottom end for their debut album the universe aligned and they connected with one of the greatest bass players and nicest people in Rock History Mr. Roger Capps (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Nominee & founding member of Pat Benatar, Dog father to "Hambone").
Roger was replaced by Seattle Bass legend and thundering bad ass Andy Claus as they went into the studio at the start of 2022 to record their sophomore album "Fast Cars & Dive Bars". Andy adds a new energy, as the band found an even greater collection of riffs and empty bottles of Jack.
The ultimate goal is to bring a heap of levity, and amazing rock grooves to the unsuspecting masses.
