Milo Z decided the best way to move forward musically was to take a half-step back. His new album "Throwback" is one of the year's most invigorating blasts of pure energy.

"Dust off your platform shoes and get your bell-bottoms out of storage 'cause the master of razzamofunk and his warriors are coming. Calling themselves Milo Z, this group has been known to bring down the house with a unique blend of funk, soul and rock. The sound is big, soulful, fat and funky. Milo Z brings together a diversity of sounds and proudly combines influences from Sly Stone, James Brown and the Neville Brothers. The band's debut album for Mercury Records, "Basic Need to Howl", spans funk soul and rock. Many of songs are simply about having a good time and feeling good, but Milo also likes to write songs that "drop science."
Everybody's News (Cincinatti, OH)

" A United Nations of p-h-o-n-k, this multi cult brotherhood pumps rhythm, straight up, into the hip-hop-along-Cassady raps of vocalist/percussionist Milo Z. guaranteed to blow the couch out from under even confirmed potatoes."

"...Neither familiar nor predictable is the situation where an opening act almost threatens to steal the show. But Milo Z a young, New York based, six man band almost did it. Fusing pop, jazz and frenetic funk, the group displayed dramatic flair in a 30 minute show that was polished yet sweaty oozing with a raw, rock & roll sexuality"
Carlo Allegri, Toronto Sun

"...Openers Milo Z... Based in New York they've built a strong cult following in the Big Apple, but appear ready to break out nationwide. Singer Milo Z combined the 60's mania of Sly Stone with the 80's mania of Prince, capped by some hip-hop/funk from the 90's Red Hot Chili Peppers".
Steve Morse, Boston Globe

"...The opening act was Milo Z, a seven piece outfit from New York who served up a six song mix of R&B and modern rock that was well received by the crowd. For a new group they captured attention and started the evening with the right note, the prelude for things to come."
Cecelia D. Johnson, Cincinnati Enquirer

"...a fine and fun young multi racial funk band which wears influences like Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, Funkadelic and The Time on their musical Sleeves..."
Wayne Bledsoe, Knoxville News-Sentinel

"...New York's Milo Z, was a motley bunch, but they sure could play. With rap-scat vocals and zip-lock-tight, choreographed funk riffs, this post go-go septet-a mash of the JBs, Chili Peppers and Tower of Power woke up the early crowd..."
Tristram Lozaw, Boston Rock

On tour with the Neville Brothers

The band has been on tour with the Neville Brothers. They have also opened up for many great acts such as The Spin Doctors, Maceo Parker, Chuck Brown, The Funky Meters, The Average White Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit, God Street Wine, El DeBarge and G-Love & the Special Sauce.
