Foxy Shazam is an American rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, formed in 2004. At least that’s what their Wikipedia page says. The only part of that statement that I can vouch for is that they certainly rock.
Foxy Shazam left an impression on everyone who was able to catch them during their appearance at 106.5’s Weenie Roast in here in Charlotte last year. Their energy on stage, in addition to their take on a familiar form of rock that we may not hear so often today, really sets them apart from the crowd.
Finishing out the rest of the year touring extensively around the U.S. the band has been working on recording new music and have not kept as hectic a tour schedule so far in 2013. We were lucky enough to have them all to ourselves here in the Carolinas as they made stops through Greensboro, Charlotte, Wilmington, and Columbia. Shutter 16 made it out to Greene Street Club for their Greensboro appearance and captured the wild set, which kept the audience screaming and dancing almost as much as the members of Foxy Shazam themselves.

Highlight of the Show: The high energy set from Foxy Shazam was definitely the Highlight of the show. They were the headliners for a reason and they put on a performance of infectious energy and loud uptempo rock and roll matched only by their stage presence!
Low Point of the Show: None…
Any Additional Comments?: Green Street Club is a great place to catch a show. Their stage setup allows for an up-close-and-personal interaction with the bands. Wonderful atmosphere all around with great lighting and sound make it one the best venues in the triad.
