The Gills are a 4 piece rock band consisting of 2 sets of brothers. The Wheeler Brothers,(Jesse and Chris)and The Prince Brothers (Matt and Andy).
The songwriting comes primarily from Jesse, who (like the rest) was raised in a family of musicians who not only worked hard to provide, but also cultivated a love for real, rich, and soulful music. Jesse was inspired to pick up a guitar and a Beatles song book when he was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 15. This was a real brush with death that took him and the whole family on quite an exhausting hike up "The Mountain". After extensive treatment including Chemo Therapy, he reached the peak and went into remission. Having recently celebrated 7 years cancer free, Jesse and the band are a bunch of young rowdy dudes on a mission to build a dream of spreading love and hope through Jesse's story and raising money and awareness towards helping other people going through the absolute hell of cancer.
The Gills' main motto on stage is to pour every ounce of sweat and emotion out on the stage in hopes of showing the crowd just how much joy music brings them, and trying make it spill into every human soul that's present.
