James “Fuzz” Sangiovanni, better known as ‘Supa-Fuzz” the supa fun, energetic and engaging entertainer is pumped and ready to visit your campus and throw down some kickin grooves! This guy learned the secret to connecting with fans of all demographics by connecting with them personally and by being a successful international recording & touring artist, songwriter, producer, director and educator for over 20 years. You may have seen him out in the world, on a stage somewhere playing guitar, singing or banging on some piece of scrap metal with one of his several bands (Tom Tom Club, Caravan of Thieves, Deep Banana Blackout or Big Fuzz) or just getting up there on his own singing and playing guitar and whipping the crowd into a frenzy. Fuzz has shared stage with artists such as Phish, The Allman Brothers, The James Brown band, Emmylou Harris, P-Funk, Bela Fleck, John Scofield, Keb Mo, the Funky Meters and many others and has released thirteen of his own albums as well as performed on and produced records from many other artists over the years.

America’s Musical Melting Pot: America’s Musical Melting Pot is a musical performance and discussion that demonstrates the essential role cultural diversity in America has played in defining its music over the past 150 years.
Caravan of Thieves: Gypsy Swinging Serenading Firebreathing Circus Freaks! If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton’s house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired. Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It’s theatrical and humorous. It’s musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs.
Deep Banana Blackout:
Funk mob where you at??? Retro dance party and funky soul band Deep Banana Blackout packs a punch with spitfire vocals, fiery guitar, powerhouse horns and deep pocket grooves.
