The members of Floozy found one another serendipitously, through the interwoven network of the smallest big state in the country known as New Mexico. Singer-songwriters Bronson Elliott (the Java Divas) and Teresa Esguerra (Local Honey), both drummers and guitarists, met through a mutual friend (thank you Hannah!) and formed a band within 30 minutes of their introduction. Through the miracle of modern technology, respected bassist/vocalist/composer Tanya Nunez (Fast Heart Mart) was alerted of this alliance via text message and joined promptly. Between these three intersecting lives, Floozy brings a wealth of musical experience and know-how, as heard in locations such as Oaxaca to Cuba to Abu Dabi to San Francisco, playing with the likes of jazz great/Grammy Award winning Stu Nevitt, sharing stages with folks like Kevin Seconds of the influential punk band, 7 Seconds, and recording in studios anywhere from the snowcapped Sierra Nevada Mountains to sea level at Capitol Records in sunny Los Angeles. As a trio, Floozy has entertained packed houses at local brewpubs, cheering parade goers and break dancing kids. They incorporate choreographed dance moves and switch instruments throughout each show. Floozy is as comfortable with their own material as they are with their diverse catalogue of covers that range from Britney Spears and the Beastie Boys to Buck Owens and Dollie Parton. They are featured in the music section of the December 2012 publication of ABQ Arts Magazine. Floozy recently completed tracks for their debut album which is set to be released in early 2013.
