Become a Gorillahead!!



Hello all ,   

Hope you all are doing alright here in 2023.

The band has two shows coming up  --March 31ST,  Corbin Bowl, and April 29th at Maui Sugar Saloon in Tarzana.     This is our first band picture , (posted above)   with  Todd Guzman on bass and drummer Addison Monroe.    Addison hails from Chicago and Todd was previously on guitar with 900 POUND GORILLA . 

    Just posting both of our youtube channels .  (until we combine them)





Our good friend John Dissed,  with whom we played some shows

back in the day,  has posted a great tribute to Jeff and the band on his latest show.

John was always great to us, and we greatly appreciate including us in his latest endeavor.

Here's a link to his halloween show:


Thank you John!!



It’s with a heavy heart I share the news of the loss of my 

Great friend and brother from another mother Jeff Edwards.     

Jeff was like a brother to many of us, 

And I’m sure we will have a lot of stories to share.  Jeff passed away a couple 

Days ago, and had suffered a long time with stomach and hernia pain.   

There is a gofundme 

Setup if you wish to donate to help with his funeral/memorial expenses. 


I’ve known Jeff for a long time and our friendship always went beyond the number of bands that we’d played in together.   Besides being a monster drummer,  he was a fierce and loyal friend.   He was like an uncle to my kids and always an important part of our family.   He wasn’t afraid to tell those around him what they meant to him.   He leaves behind his wife Brandi and stepson Jariss.      

How are you all holding up on lockdown?    We've been posting videos from our Canyon club show on youtube and Facebook.   We also did a lifestream of the whole show.     More videos to come!    Hoping you all are well and we can get through this together through some sweet jams!

Here's our Facebook link :


We were supposed to play  a great show with T.S.O.L. on friday, March 20th at the Santa Clarita Canyon club with our friends Seven40Seven.  7-12 pm .      Of course things have changed.
