Alfonzo are a rip rousing rock band that make you remember why going to a gig is one of our greater pleasures in life. Going from great big chunky riffs one minute to Beach Boys harmonies the next they really give you the full experience.

Biography

Alfonzo are a four piece band, from Portobello, Edinburgh. The current line up has been together for the past three and a half years. The band is
made up of brothers Mikey (guitar) and Chris Cook (bass), drummer Andy Innes and lead singer and keyboard, Daniel McGeever. Having all grown up
close to each other and going to the same school the band have been best friends since they were kids this friendship is evident in their playing as they are one of the tightest bands you will see about. With great live sets becoming the norm for Alfonzo they caught the eye of new Glasgow based label D Set Records, who decided to make them their first band on their label.

The band has been gigging successfully around Scotland with support slots with the likes of Snow Patrol, Doves and Feeder and with festival
appearances at Wickerman festival who nominated Alfonzo as best live act for the indy music awards 2008 and playing the main stage at Live @ Loch
Lomond last year, so things look to be going very much in the right direction. With all the guys great love for rock and blues over the years it was time for them to go into the studio and put down their own stamp on the music scene. They have recently finished working on their debut album with award winning producer Jim Sutherland (Aberfeldy) which was then sent off to George Marino at Sterling sound in New York for mastering. Their debut single “Shuma” from the album “Stories Written for Today” should be out latter in the year.
