We are a no messing straight up rock band, who play it how itÂ’s meant to be played. Taking inspiration from the classics such as Zappa and the Beatles we have put it all together and produced a power house of a set to excite everyone.

Biography

Alfonzo are a four-piece band from Edinburgh. They are 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 the band have been best friends since they were kids, which has helped them become a great live act.

This live reputation has enabled them to gig 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, best live act for the indy music awards 2008) and the main stage at Live @ Loch Lomond last year. They also recently played with The Fratellis and Travis at the Glasgow o2, which was on national TV. So things certainly look to be going very much in the right direction.

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. The upcoming months will see Alfonzo play many gigs in support of their debut album.
