Glostik Willy is a very unique and diverse band formed in early 2008. Since then the band has grown to be a driving force in today's jam scene. Glostik Willy brings an energy like no other during live performances that gets crowds moving and grooving all night long. Early in 2010 GW began making a statement in today's festival scene by "stage raging" which means going to festivals without being billed, building a stage, and playing until the sun comes up for anyone still around to enjoy it. The band is a force to be reckoned with and is showing no signs of slowing down. Their first album Gonzology, released in 2010 featuring songs such as Gonzo Tree, Highs & Lows, and My Brudda, were a instant hit with Stik Heads everywhere. Currently the band is working on a new album titled Peppermint, that will feature the bands most recent musical workings such as Peppermint, 427, Traveling Moo, Walking Apples, and Gollem in the Shed. It will release in January of 2013. Glostik Willy continues to thrive on the road spreading the love for their music to anyone with an open ear. If this group of in your face progressive/funk/jam addicts happen to stop by a city near you, be sure not to miss this amazing musical spectacle that the world will soon know as Glostik Willy.
