The Gas House Gorillas

"This primo jump blues band has it all: an amazing rhythm section, awesome sax playing, fabulous guitar, a killer frontman, and fantastic songs. And more than all that, these guys have the ability to cross over from jump blues to swing to rock and back again, often within the same track."

Michael Macomber - Retro Music Review

The Gas House Gorillas often bring the show into the audience spurring fans to sing, dance and get wild. Cutting up with each other and the crowd, the Gorillas are more than a great band, they are great entertainers as well.

The band's repertoire encompasses a broad range of styles that include Jump Blues, Gypsy Swing, early Rock & Roll, Cajun Music and even the occasional funk groove. Artists as diverse as Wynonie Harris, Groucho Marx, Sam Cooke, Fats Waller, and Albert King all coexist in the Gorillas' musical vernacular.

You may have seen the Gorillas this past Summer as they burned down clubs and festivals in the South and across the Midwest. They will soon be heading for the West coast as they bring their genre busting brand of mayhem to an ever expanding audience all over the USA.

The Gas House Gorillas are fearlessly uninhibited performers and a sure fire guarantee for a rippin' good time!
