Dazy Head Mazy: High energy. Incredible chemistry. Fun. These are just some of the phrases one might use to describe the pop rock band Dazy Head Mazy and their live show. The Minneapolis-based group has been busy turning venues into all-out parties since 1996, playing over 100 shows a year across the US. Composed of Will Bauermeister (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Eric Moe (bass) and Jason Lyles (drums), Dazy Head Mazy has shared the stage with such acts as OAR, the Gin Blossoms, 7 Mary 3 and Semisonic, among others. Whether the lively foursome is playing at a college campus, a charity event, or one of the top venues in the country, their goal is to always make sure the audience has as much fun as they do.

With an interesting blend of eye-opening pop and soothing melodic vocals, Dazy Head Mazy’s infectious tunes have often been compared to that of Hootie and the Blowfish, the Barenaked Ladies, Sister Hazel and the Dave Matthews Band. Their first full-length album, They're All Wearing Pearls, has sold over 10,000 units to date, and their second LP, Shift, was named “Best Pop Album” in 2000 by the Independent Music Awards. The band’s latest release, Acoustic Cities, promises to be their best work yet, with soothing, acoustic-driven pop rock that can only be described as classic Dazy Head Mazy.

Though they have recorded four studio albums, received numerous awards and nominations, and played with some of the biggest bands in alternative rock, Dazy Head Mazy remains a group of guys who just love music and love to play it. Their energetic live show and honest, roosty pop songs have entertained audiences for a decade, and there’s no reason for them to back down now.
