Journalist Bill Milkowski called GZ simply mind-boggling. Gongzilla first released a series of mostly instrumental albums featuring a special guest guitarist on each one, including jazz fusion legends Allan Holdsworth, David Torn and David Fiuczynski. More recently, Gongzilla has included some U.S. jamband heroes in its live performances, like guitarist Chuck Garvey and percussionist Jim Loughlin of moe., and has emphasized vocals, crafting songs with which fuse with improvisational rock. The new studio record includes the aforementioned Garvey as well as Jake Cinninger of Umphrey’s McGee plus guitarist David “Fuze” Fiuczynski (Screaming Headless Torsos) and bassist Kai Eckhardt of Garaj Mahal!
Contradictions and balance; Hansford Rowe and Bon Lozaga sing cool songs that will singe your soul while balancing both the hyper precision and the rockin mayhem this band is capable of live. Gongzilla is currently finishing their 4th studio album for LoLo Records.
