Born in Detroit, The Muggs a three-piece blues rock band. Their incendiaries live shows and jamming approach have garnered them recognition of both public and critics.
The band members are Danny Methric on guitar and lead vocals, Tony DeNardo on bass guitar and backing vocals, and Todd Glass on drums, three rock machines working as one on stage. Their records are excellent, their shows crazy memorable.
The Muggs begun at 2001, a band in a fast track road, but suddenly the tragedy struck them: their bassist DeNardo suffered a stroke - nearly ending his life at 28. After two years of grueling rehab, the band worked together to modify DeNardo’s bass duties. Eschewing tradition, DeNardo learned to play his bass lines on a Fender Rhodes piano with one hand. DeNardo’s struggles and the band’s refusal to leave him behind gained them even greater awareness and grew their fan base.
After the tragedy, there came the records:“The Muggs” (2005), “On With The Show” (2008), “Born Ugly” (2011) y “Full Tilt” (Live, 2013).
After several tour through Spain, Germany, Holland, France and Italy with a great feedback from the public The Muggs are coming back to Europe to present their new record, “Straight Up Boogaloo”, that will be released in March, the 21st (2015).
They have had songs licensed for a high-profile online promotional campaign for Dodge Charger, in addition to placement in the independent documentary film “The Force Among us”.
They have supported Mountain, Cactus, Thin Lizzy, Ten Years After, Glenn Hughes, North Mississippi Allstars, Electric Six, among others.
The Muggs were selected out of 10,000 applicants to compete on Fox TV’s “The Next Great American Band" reality show, performing for millions of viewers each week.
Detroit Music Awards awarded the band as the best band in Detroit, Riff 2 Radio named The Muggs "Best Rock Band of the Year", and they have been recognized by USA Today or “Classic Rock” magazine, to name a few.
The Muggs have long made the tongue-in-cheek proclamation that they are “the Ugliest Band in the World! (and they may be!), but what they surely are is one of the best bands you can get to see live nowadays. Ugly or not, The Muggs create beautifully fierce and timeless rock songs.
