The Sh-Booms

Central Florida’s The Sh-Booms have taken a love for soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and throwing a party to create a unique, garage-soul sound of their own.

The seven-piece soul enterprise – comprised of Al “The Thump” Ruiz, The Supreme Queen Mizz Bren, Kevin “The Skin Blaster” Connolly, Davis “Twinkle Toes” Schleicher, Mike “The Slush Pump” Ortiz, and Nick “The Licks” Walsh – are a horn-fueled, soul-soaked presence on the stage, which they’ve shared with national acts such as Lee Fields, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, KRS-One, and Candlebox. Their fresh brand of garage soul has been recognized locally as well, as Orlando Weekly’s “Best Soul Act” for the past four years running.

Growing up immersed in a world of soul and doo-wop, raised by parents who have been known to get down a time or two on the dance floor of American Bandstand, Ruiz formed The Sh-Booms in 2011, looking to inject new energy into his music. The group quickly became known for their live shows – sweaty, high-energy sets accompanied by a fair share of dancing and whiskey – and their first EP, 1.2.3!, was released in 2013. The sound and lineup of The Sh-Booms have evolved since, most recently with the addition of front-woman Mizz Bren. The Supreme Queen, who was previously signed to Justin Timberlake’s Tenman Records and contributed backing vocals on his album, The 20/20 Experience, joined The Sh-Booms in early 2015.

The Sh-Booms will release a five-song EP in March of 2016 which they recorded with GRAMMY-nominated producer Alan Armitage (Boyz II Men) and was mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, The Kills). For booking, publicity, or press inquiries, email
