The Numbers

When: Thu., Sept. 2 2010

The Numbers is a cool name. But this central North Carolina-based outfit, co-fronted by Britt Harper "Snüzz" Uzzell and Sam Frazier, could also be The Survivors. Or if that's too close to the "Eye of the Tiger" crew, The Just Happy to Be Heres would work. "The new band is a minor miracle," says Uzzell. "After I contracted Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, I thought my playing career was about finished. After six months of chemo, I've recovered and am out playing again." Frazier has a comeback story, too: He had a heart attack in the late '90s, as well as his own bout with lymphoma. But, says Uzzell, Frazier is "healthy, clean, and sober—not to mention in the best musical form of his life. There are lots of convergences in our styles that might not be immediately recognized until you see us perform together." Rounding out the quartet is the veteran rhythm section of Eddie Walker (Majosha) and Andy Ware (Hobex). "This is really one of the best bands I've ever played with," offers Uzzell. "I've never been happier." —Rick Cornell
