Dr. Gonzo & The Cheesy Boys
Dr. Gonzo & The Cheesy Boys is: Mattia Montenegri (drums), Filippo Cavalli (bass), Emil Quattrini (keyboards), Carlo Barabaschi (guitar). All af them were already playing with hard rock stoner bands active on the northern Italy area. '70 Rock and psychedelia is the common ground they started with to create their original material between 2006 and 2008. The 1st release is "Gipsy" (2008), self produced cd guesting a female singer. This record shows already all the influences of the band, including some more 60' psychedelic oriented tunes. Some live shows follow on their area, the equipment is strictly vintage. The sound of the band is powerful and rich. After the recording of the lost album "The River" (2012), more hard blues oriented and guesting Monica Sardella (Electric Swan) on vocals, the band decided to develop the instrumental side and started to create a new extended song for their next album. "The Witch", recorded at Elfo Studio in 2016, is now released by Freemood, a Tanzan Music brand, in LP and digital download. It's an instrumental suite based on heavy guitar riffs and the iconic sound of the Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer and Mellotron, influenced by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Atomic Rooster and italian progressive rock.
