Steve Davis plays the bass and drums. He sometimes plays guitar and keyboards, and sings a little bit. He does some other stuff too, including pushing buttons, twisting knobs, and cursing at malfunctioning equipment. He also owns the microphone, which is quite useful.
Peter Preston sings most of the words. He also blows into the harmonica, the didgeridoo and the trombone. On occasion he bangs on things. He can also stay up really late at night.
Rich Marcil plays guitars of the 6 and 12 string variety, both acoustic and electric. He plays a mean tambourine and also uses the e-bow (google it if you don't know). He picks on the mandolin now and then, and likes cats.
The band's influences include Samuel Adams, Miller Lite, Shock Top, Yuengling Black and Tan, Blue Moon, and the occasional Jack Daniels.
Here's what the fans are saying (note: any similarity to actual living persons and the fanbase members is purely hogwash):
The following are unsolicited testimonials -
"I am still uncertain if I have heard the new Zen Fuse Box album, or if, in fact, a portal was temporarily opened in my skull to an alternate musical multiverse of magical tune-age. I think I did hear the album, though". Fred S., Two Egg, FL.
"Zen Fuse Box rocks so hard they are totally off the Moh's scale". Irvin G., Roswell, NM.
"If ignorance is bliss then Zen Fuse Box is so ignorant you won't know what hit you". Lao T., Beijing.
"ZFB has not only succeeded in dividing by zero, they have left a remainder of infinity". Anonymous mathematician.
"They way that they perform causes me to wish I was in an intimate relationship with any and/or all of them. I wish to bear their children". Unduly influenced anonymous female fan.
"Zen Fuse Box makes every other so-called 'band' in the market sound like crude rhythms tapped out on cracked kettles fit only for bears to dance to". Anonymous fan channeling Gustave Flaubert.
"They don't suck". Anonymous band member's parent.
"Zen Fuse Box are game-changers, paradigm shifters, they are to all other previous music what that the internal-combustion engine was to the horse, what Einstein was to Newtonian physics, what sliced bread was to an un-cut loaf". D. H., Lawrenceville, KS.
"When I and my band-mates got through merely the first trio of tracks we swore a blood oath to dis-band, destroy our instruments, and burn down our practice space down at the U-Rent. I'm not really supposed to talk about that last part until the case is settled". Joe "Big Momma" Meare, former drummer for Dogs in Helicopters.
"I can't comment right now...gotta get back to my sworn commitment to continuously listening to the new Zen Fuse Box over and over again 'til death, or a sophomore effort from the band, does us part". K.L., Kotzebue, AK.
