While renovations are ongoing in our space and we are offering curb side pick up only it felt like a good time to reflect on the almost 14 years of our company history in Santa Barbara on State Street.
So take a trip with us down memory lane while we revisit some of the sparse photo footage that we could track down from the early days and through this last decade.
Our 3120 State Street location was popping from late 2006-2009, this pic is at the end of that run in 2009. Then we moved to our current location at 1115 State Street.
Our new space was bigger than our old one and we couldn't even fill it up at first, here's a pic of the upstairs clothing store from 2010.
We didn't have any problems filling it with people though, and we quickly realized that events would be a good way to further integrate with the community and show people our space.
This guy was the first artist to do a show at Fuzion, Michael Heltebrake, he opened the doors for us, which is punny because his paintings were on doors.
George the DJ, lot's of underground hip hop and groovy vibes if I remember right.
We met our homie Chadillac at one of these things, he did art shows with us too.
Good times were had by all!
We threw events with lots of different people during this time, Adam from Stateside magazine held some shows.
There's a chance this would be Adam's favorite photo of himself we have.
Not to be confused with Marteen Diaz, who also had shows at Fuzion and become a good homie as well.
This event with live body painting was an interesting one.
Somewhere around 2010 or 2011.
If you know this guy then you're on point.
Two Fuzion legends. This place wouldn't exist without certain people.
It's all about good friends and good times, don't let them tell you any different.
Nathan's now the owner/curator of Sullivan Goss, good guy, well deserved. This pic is from 2011 or so maybe.
Just smiles, that's all we need.
Fuzion legends Janie and Charles.
One of them co founded Fuzion.
And this guy just showed up for the Free Beer 100%.
