JACUZZI BOYS SPACE VACATION

by jacqueline safian

I eventually stumbled upon the Jacuzzi Boys due to a curiosity that developed from a sticker I picked up several years ago at my favorite art gallery (ArtCenter/South Florida Gallery) in Miami. The sticker reads Sweat Records. I loved the name and logo and figured it must be some super-sweet record company that I would most likely never know about. For some reason the notion of researching it never occurred to me. I guess I had assumed it would be better for it to remain a sexy mystery. During my last Miami rendezvous, I attended a show with the QC chief, and next to the venue was a sick mural with mad peeps on it (including my idol, Erykah Badu). Then I noticed the Sweat Records logo and I thought, alas I found you!

Artist: Jacuzzi Boys

I was still curious as to whether it was a record company or store. Turns out it’s a store that also puts together spectacular shows and events, including the one we were lucky to have been in attendance of that magical evening. While checking out their myspace, I came across the band, Jacuzzi Boys. Their name had intrigued me so I clicked the link to their myspace page and it was love at first listen. I immediately noticed their similarity to one of my current faves, King Khan. A shared LP and pictures of them together confirmed my suspicions. My discovery had me wondering, are they his protégés? Or did they just happen to be simultaneously rockin’ it and befriend each other because of their common bond of playing tunes in ways they haven’t been played since the good ol’ days? Either way, these kids can rock. I don’t know too much about them besides their alliance with Khan except that they’re from Miami, and that they proclaim that they’re sound is like “old florida ghosts”. Unfortunately, the only tour date listed on their page isn’t until March 27th. They are sharing the stage with Black Lips though, so perhaps it’s worth the wait, but I wanna see these guys in Brooklyn! Someone needs to get them a gig in Williamsburg. Anybody in the position to do so, I’d strongly recommend contacting these cats, asap.
