New Westminster, BC, Canada
Amidst a cacophony of feedback and cymbals, the first moments of BIG FUZZ’s live show signal an exciting future for the New Westminster, BC rock duo. Over the PA, a large, booming voice proclaims: “Two words… you’ll hear them everywhere: BIG… FUZZ…” What comes next is a half hour of songs that each flirt with the 3-minute mark and make you want to dance. Make no mistake, this is a real rock band with big drums and fuzz pedals—it’s in the name, after all—but the songs themselves will be just as at home on Top 40 radio as they would be at your favourite rock venue. This is no accident. BIG FUZZ may be brand new, but over their careers, the duo of Francis Henson (guitar, vocals) and Anthony Cenerini (drums) have produced college radio hits, been credited on Juno-nominated albums, performed with dozens of artists across Canada, and had their work seen and heard by millions online.
