Combining hard rock energy and melodic songwriting, Muzzy Luctin has made a deep impact on the Midwest music scene. Local radio has fully embraced the band. Many of Wisconsins top radio stations have played Muzzy's music including WJJO (Madison, WI), WIBA (Madison, WI), WMAD (Madison, WI), WLZR (Milwaukee, WI), WLUM (Milwaukee, WI), WQLF (Monroe, WI) and KGRR (Dubuque, IA). Muzzy Luctin has traveled to New York twice to perform for record label showcases. The band regularly plays the major festival events in the Midwest such as SUMMERFEST (Milwaukee, WI), TASTE OF MADISON (Madison, WI) and DANE COUNTY FAIR (Madison, WI). Muzzy has also played shows with HOOBASTANK, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, SUBMERSED, TANTRIC, 3 DOORS DOWN, RA, DEAF PEDESTRIANS, PRESENCE, NONPOINT, CLUTCH, SLAVES ON DOPE, MIGHTY SIDESHOW, STIR, HEDDER, KING'S X, THE PIMPS, DUST FOR LIFE, FLAW, 40 BELOW SUMMER, JUDAS PRIEST, BENDER, STAGE, MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE, DEADSY, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, GODHEAD, 6 GIG and CAROLINE'S SPINE. In addition, the band receives attention from radio and magazines in Europe and other areas of the world. Muzzy Luctin was featured in Rock Hard Magazine (Germany) and 'Sugarfly' is included on one of their Unerhort! (Best unsigned bands) CDs. The Belgian magazine Rock Tribune reviewed Muzzys debut CD Symptoms of a Simple Life in their January 2004 issue and also ran a feature article in their February 2004 issue. Recently, many European rock and metal news sites on the web have taken note and given rave reviews of the CD as well. The CD, the band's first full-length release, 'Symptoms of a Simple Life', was recorded at Sleepless Nights Studios in Madison, WI with guitarist Paul Schluter as engineer and producer. Over two years in the making, this thirteen-song epic has the commercial viability and production quality of a major label effort. It was released on February 23, 2002. Muzzy played throughout the Midwest in support of 'Symptoms' until early 2003 when the band decided to take some time off from live shows and start writing for a second CD. In April of 2004 Muzzy won the award for Best Rock Band at the first annual Madison Area Music Awards. Currently the band has just released their second CD Divine Intermission which is available now at the band's website (www.muzzyluctin.com). The new material has been well received in advance previews by label reps and media. With past experience and mature songwriting skills, it is only a matter of time before this band explodes into the national spotlight.
