Still working on that hot first release.



Locochino (Crazypants) is an energy-packed, crowd-engaging progressive rock band from Gainesville, FL.  Their show has been described as an adventure, at times guiding you on a trip across the galaxy and at others inciting a celebratory rage that satisfies and inspires.  The band has successfully embraced the diversity of each member's musical background, pulling off a blend of rock, funk, jam, and psychedelic sounds that keep their audience engaged.

The band's first EP, recorded at Black Bear Studios and mastered at Skylab, is a reflection of the their experimental beginnings.  Later, their music took on a personality inspired by a unified team of talent who were able to write and perform as one mind.  A live album is currently in the mix/master phase and, once released, will highlight the focused direction that Locochino's writing has taken on. Examples of what a Locochino show looks like can be found on the band's website, locochino.com/mediapage.

Music festivals are a large part of the band's ambition, both on and off the job.  Starting with Roosevelt Collier's Suwannee Getdown at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, Locochino has continued to to impress festival after festival.  Headlining Farm to Family Music Festival, performing at the first Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, and continuing their success with Suwannee Hulaween this year.  They've also been involved in charity projects like Future Music Makers where a series of concerts are held to raise money that pays for private music lessons for children.  Blake Briand, owner and musician at Gainesville's venue "The Jam," had this to say about Locochino in a recent interview:
“Their music invigorates a crowd and reaffirms the reason on why people go out to hear live music."

Locochino is Alan Garver, Brian Johnson, Nick Melms, Sam Coplin, and Dave Johnson.
