Board Of Governors / Bio

Board Of Governors is a power-rock trio in Chicago, IL, that couples the aggressive, driving rhythms of East Coast punk rock with the structural and melodic integrity of 90′s Seattle-based grunge rock.

BOG is singer/guitarist Trevor Hougardy, drummer John Marino and bassist, Frey Brown, who together merge the youthful excitement and energy of their rock backgrounds. Their music is distinguished by energetic guitar-riff driven hooks, sophisticated use of dynamics, chromaticism and key changes, and is consciously minimalist. Their songs are often interlaced with groove-inspired bridges, which make their music ooze with sex and passion.

Hougardy’s smart and soulful lyrics are a unique brand of social commentary that has a solid message: In order for people to live happy, fulfilling lives, one cannot turn a blind eye to social struggle or add to problems by focusing on competition, fame, money, exploitation or drugs. Instead, BOG broadcasts a positive message to stay true to your own values no matter your socio-economic status, where you live or what you look like, and to speak up against those who try to bring you down with their negativity.
