With an eccentric mix of time signatures, grooves, and jams, The Mezz was formed in the upstate of South Carolina with the goal of doing things differently. Coming from vastly different musical backgrounds and influences, Ryan Doolittle, Dylan Rogers, Zach Todd, and Austin Woodard began performing together as The Mezz in early 2017. They quickly became known for their shows consisting of original music, improvised jams, challenging covers, and a psychedelic light show that guarantees a good time.
The Mezz released their first studio album on December 31, 2017. The self-titled album included the song Let's Get Funky, which became a permanent play on Sunny 103.5 (WZSN)'s "Funky Friday" radio show.
