Grit / Bio

In the fall of 2013, Ricky Cagno and Jonathon Franklin's former band, Gainesville Grit, was disbanded and the two friends were in search of a way to keep making music. Drummer, Max Rowe had subbed for Gainesville Grit's drummer in the past and immediately joined them. The trio was getting gigs all around Gainesville but felt they were lacking a full sound. This was when Gytis Garsys and Ian Heausler came into the picture. Both were picked up as one-time hires but both meshed well with the band and joined after just one gig. With two more guitars in the mix, Jonathon decided to switch over to bass and the band was complete. The five members decided to shorten the name to Grit and push forward into a classic southern rock sound and is currently working on their first album.
