Bon Lozaga's (Gongzilla) latest venture, Tiny Boxes blends progressive musicality with funky fusion together in a solid rock band package.Share
Tiny Boxes is an uncompromising rock group aiming for a sound somewhere between The Band of Gypsys and Jeff Beck. The band was founded by Bon Lozaga whose enduring commitment to fusion and prog-rock has won him a loyal global following. Soaring melodies, epic solos, and funk-infused rhythms have been central to his approach since his days in Gong during the band’s classic late- ’70s Expresso II period—playing alongside Allan Holdsworth—through to Gongzilla and now with Tiny Boxes.
Tiny Boxes has recently ventured into jamband and songwriting territory, with the help from members of moe. and Umphrey’s McGee. Members of both bands frequently guest at TB"s live shows. Lozaga’s forthcoming solo album titled "Tiny Boxes", released under the name Bon, continues those jamband relationships, with the inclusion of Umphrey’s McGee keyboardist Joel Cummins and Kofi Burbridge from the Derek Trucks Band.
Tiny Boxes is rounded out by a group of seasoned musicians; Leo Kishore (Barefoot Manner, Funkuponya) on Bass, Kyle Poehling (Rebus, Modern Robot) on Drums, and multi-instrumentalist Matt Williams (The Ocean, Asheville Jazz All-Stars) on Violin, Guitar, and Mandolin.
