The best kept secret in music

"We have a calling from beyond the stars." Jo Lou, Cameron House 2003

"This is the cause that unites our country and gives hope to the world and will lead us to a future of peace...We have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom, and America will always be faithful to that cause." George W. Bush, Inauguration Day 2005. - Jo Lou

"Jo Lou at the Rivoli"

"...as the host, organizer and performer for Sunday evening music events 'Careful Down'...Jo would assemble a group of musicians who performed both solo and in jam sessions...her band project GOMANGO. Her performances were always the highlight of the event..." - Jeff Strasburg/Rivoli Cafe


"H2O", EP released June 2005
"FULAP", full-length due for release fall 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


GOMANGO is represented in this band as a sum of sweat and dedication by its experienced members. Lead singer/dancing guitar player Jo Lou works with funk bassist Snappy Homefry, melodic guitarist Sean Beresford, and clever drummer Greg Woods to create a steam-engine of musical entertainment. Their ska, reggae, and rock playfully expose well-crafted songs, while the band's worldly vibrations grooves from style to style. Since their dawn in the summer of 2003, GOMANGO has played a variety of shows, special events and festivals in Toronto. They wowed audiences at P.S. Kensington's Street Festival last summer and were the highlights at this year's Something's Fishier (18 band event) and BUZZ Festival.

GOMANGO's release of the much anticipated EP "H2O" (2005) has already made a great impression on new and old fans alike. Such adept variety and energy will be further explored on their full-length album "FULAP" due out in the fall, which they will promote and tour throughout Ontario and Quebec. GOMANGO is anxious to take their musical celebration and spirited wit to audiences throughout North America and abroad, and they welcome music-lovers everywhere to be a part of their crusade to revitalize hope in an unknown future and bring the instinct to groove back to reality.
