Gentleman Surfer
Gentleman Surfer
Formed in 2006, Sacramento, CA, United States as a solo project of drummer/bandleader Jon Bafus. By mid-2010, bassist Drew Walker and guitarist Barry McDaniel joined to assist in performing material from the "Bountiful Ore" release (2011), which features Bafus on all instruments. In late 2012, Zack Bissell joined on keyboards just prior to the release of the second album "Blalks" (2013). The band has since released two albums with this lineup, "Gold Man" (2015) and "Reanimate Ore" (2016), and has gradually evolved into a full-fledged band with all members contributing material, than the initial solo project of which it first began.

PG13 is a collaborative project driven by compositions from phillip greenlief (many of which were inspired by his departed cat, george cleaver) and john shiurba (many of which were inspired by his dog bloom). drummer tom scandura offers lots of edits in the work, and contours the shape of melodies and rhythms in ways the composers may never have considered. the blanket genre for the group could be considered post-rock, but has elements of punk, thrash, metal, and angular melodies reminiscent of the works of chicago iconclast anthony braxton. the trios eponymous album was released on edgetone records in 2018.


The members of PG13 have a long history in the Bay Area improv community and lay down some tight, noisy, prog rock with their debut self-titled CD "PG13.
