Fuzzy Math is a Twin Cities-based band that performs regularly around the metro area featuring original eclectic jazz & creative pop covers. They were named to the Best of MN list in 2012 (“best jazz act for people bored with jazz”). Their goal is to make new music that’s interesting, accessible and fun…serious music that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
