WHO THE HELL ARE they?
Starting out as a great excuse for Drummer Buzz Brown and Guitarist/Singer Rob Trosino to line up tequila shots and jam out on their favorite cover songs things were about to get scary “good” at their haunted Seattle Music Room. By the end of their first gathering they had 4 originals written so cover songs were tossed aside, and by time these longtime Facebook friends sobered up they came up with the concept of BUZZED & LOADED. Fun based Arena Rock, done with tongue in cheek lyrics, and all served on a cheap motel bed of shenanigans.
Within weeks Covid hit trapping Pat Benatar founding member and Bassist Roger Capps in Seattle which led them to finding their perfect bottom end for the band, and one with incredible Rock n Roll pedigree. Together they released their award nominated debut album Drunken Delusions Volume I & II, and rode out the lockdown in a state of perpetual tipsiness.
While attending a Music Award Show in Tennessee the band meshed with Andy Claus a Seattle Bass legend and the current lineup was consummated with our spouses in a Smokey Mountain hot tub. With Roger retiring from music Andy actually propelled the band to new heights on their current album Fast Cars & Dive Bars providing a ton of riff ideas, and colorful new swear words. This album was nominated for 2022 Album of the Year at the JMA Awards held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
Join the band in a toast to Rock n Roll as performed before computer trickery. Stay BUZZED & LOADED!!
