Biography

Guerrilla Funk Monster is a four piece original band with an experimental musical style that blends rock, blues, funk, punk, reggae, and world music in such a unique way that it is hard to categorize. They simply cannot be defined by just one genre. Their eclectic mix of songs provides the audience with diversity, intensity, and creative musicianship.

THE ONE THING THAT REMAINS THE SAME IS THAT THEY KEEP PEOPLE CAPTIVATED ON AND OFF OF THE DANCE FLOOR ALL NIGHT LONG WITH THEIR INTENSE GROOVE-ORIENTED SOUND.

The band draws from a wide range of influences that include: Jimi Hendrix, The Meters, Funkadelic, James Brown, Tom Waits, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Faith No More, The Minutemen, Manu Chao, Bob Marley, Fishbone, and Fela Kuti.

Guerrilla Funk Monster's current line up has been together since 2001 and has amassed a lengthy repertoire of more than 30 first-rate originals, a dozen solid covers, and hours of sweaty, danceable jams. They have an extremely strong presence on stage and exhibit a seemingly endless amount of energy regardless of whether they are playing their
first song or their last. This dogged determination has allowed the band to play more than 200 shows in over 50 cities.

Since the spring of 2002, GFM have completed one extensive coast-to-coast tour and have toured regularly between the west coast and southern Ontario. They have also sold nearly 1500 CDs, charted in the top 30 on dozens of campus radio stations (reaching #1 on several), received favorable reviews in publications ranging from the Vancouver Sun to the Globe & Mail, performed at Prairie Music Week 2002 and NXNE 2003, opened for Noise Therapy and Kid Koala, and have had their music appear in TV shows around the world.
