Biography

Background:
While growing up, music was constant in my household. My parents were always listening to everything from The Beatles to Led Zeppelin to ZZ Top and just about everything else in between. I was inspired by my father, who plays guitar, to start playing guitar around the age of 10. When I was 11 years old, I was fortunate enough to co-star alongside Jack Black in the Paramount film SCHOOL OF ROCK”. Not only did I get to act in a major motion picture, but I got to play my guitar in the movie, which is my first love. After traveling around the world doing promotion for “School of Rock”, I returned back to Michigan, and recorded a batch of songs that I had been writing. Those songs turned out to be my self-titled debut album, which featured an outstanding musician Donn Deniston on drums, and Joe Gaydos Sr., (my dad) on bass. The record was a great first effort, and was well received both locally and internationally.
Through 2004 and early 2005, I continued to write new material. By now I felt it was time to form my own band with hopefully a group of like minded musicians. After a long and some what frustrating audition process, I was very impressed by the drumming skills of Nick Brandon. Although Nick would have been my first choice to fill the spot, I debated whether or not to try and find musicians closer to my own age. That idea went straight out the window after reviewing the audition tape, Nick was defiantly in. I still had not found a bassist until my dad suggested a guy that he had jammed with named Jonathon Redmond. A rehearsal was scheduled with Jonathon, needless to say he impressed both myself and Nick with his extraordinary musical abilities. The “Joey Gaydos Group” was now a reality.
