Still working on that hot first release.



Gonzo came together a bit unexpectedly in late 2013 while living in Cleveland, Ohio. Towards the end of January (2014) guitarist John Sabo had a show booked at The Stone Tavern (Kent, Oh) with a punk band he was previously a part of. However due to unforeseen circumstances they were unable to play it. Instead of canceling the show, the venue allowed what would eventually become Gonzo, a chance to play. Up until that point they had only been playing instrumentals. Charles Christian added what the band was missing. A voice. Having played with the great local Cleveland funk band 'We The People' for 4 years, as well as various other projects in the area (and generally just being good friends of theirs) he was more than a welcome addition. This first show ended up being one of their greatest accomplishments as a band. It was the initial push that motivated them to first off, name the group, secondly take the time to actually write songs, and third to genuinely call themselves a band. At the end of October, Gonzo made a collective decision to pursue their musical aspirations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Having lived here for almost a year, they have already begun to leave footprint’s in the Charlotte music scene. Whether its playing out at one of the many open mic’s in the area, getting out to support to the local talent, or playing shows themselves…Gonzo wants to deliver a high energy atmosphere where ever they go.
