Meet The Band

James Brown - Lead Vocals

James Brown - Lead Vocals

James Brown, the dynamic and outgoing front man for Fuzzy Side Up was at one time working at Astroworld from 1974-1990 as a caricaturist, winning the employee talent shows annually with the vocal chops and confident swagger that would perpetuate his musical career in Texas’s 4th largest city.

After a series of garage bands James was employed at Texas Tumbleweed in 1980, a series of restaurants that were located in The Greater Houston and Austin areas.  James would often sit in with the bands that would be on stage, enthralling the patrons who would not leave their tables until they saw Mr. Brown sing. The year 1985 saw James finding himself as vocalist of the Guppies from Outer Space and in 1987 toured with a band called Velocity before a fateful meeting with Frank Carr and “Almost Famous” Phil Sandling led to the first incarnation of Fuzzy Side Up in 1997.

The consistency of the band over the time span of over a decade is cemented by James’ presence. More than just a singer, he is the spokesperson onstage for the band.  Endowed with a smooth stage patter, he is a champion of the cause of making sure the staff of FSU’s various venues receive the compensation they deserve.  His diligence and dedication to the band is an inspiration to all around him and part of the spark that ignites Fuzzy Side Up’s nightly performances.

BC Anagnostis, the Galveston-born bassist of Fuzzy Side Up, brings to the table a depth of knowledge of material and stylistic nuances rarely found in someone who normally occupies the rhythm section.  Starting on guitar at age 13, and progressing to electric bass soon afterwards, he began his journey of gigging  professionally in Houston in the spring and summer of 1989.

He has shared stages with Tommy Gill and the Texas Star Band, the Convertibles Band, the late great Gene Kelton, Mark May, Six Gun Keys, and Key of Soul with none other than Flash Shockley, legend of the Houston music scene.

He’s celebrating a decade of being in the band, and is a dynamic force in the rhythm section of Fuzzy Side Up.
