BONZ / Bio

Stuck Mojo trail blazed the rap-rock genre by melding their heavy metal-bred Southern heritage with a frontman (Bonz)who bled hip-hop. Formed in 1989 by guitarist Rich Ward, Stuck Mojo set out to experiment with this genre-blending musical hybrid, inspired by bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Run DMC and Black Sabbath. When Stuck Mojo’s first release, "Snappin' Necks," appeared in the mid-90's via Century Media, they were something of a phenomenon to some and a question mark to others. Daring to be different in a non-socially acceptable way, they challenged the system musically and broke down barriers. After being named the year's best live band by MTV Europe, the band would go on to tour with the likes of Machinehead, Pantera, Testament, Life Of Agony, Type O Negative, The 24/7 Spyz, Sevendust and Clutch. STUCK MOJO became Century Media's biggest selling act in America and would remain so until 2004. Fast forward to 2009, Bonz joins forces with Curt Taylor of Primer 55 and creates Killer in the Workplace. The band would go on to record a full length album and tour to support it. However, by 2011 it was obvious that it was not in the cards for the band to continue on. Bonz and Curt had developed a bond and musical chemistry that was undeniable, and after KITW they decided to forge ahead and form the band BONZ. After creating the first few demos, they knew that something really new and invigorating was in store, and the music reflects that feeling. This is a “new” Bonz, with all of the flair and attitude that only he can bring, as part of a band that delivers the goods night in and night out, reiterating that the “Mouth of Mojo” is indeed back in fine form. In January of 2014, BONZ signed with Eternal Sound Records from Germany. They have been hard at work creating their debut recording for Eternal Sound Records at Virtuo Sound Studios in Canton, Georgia with Josh Hack and The Porch in Orlando, Fl with Tim Laud. BONZ is preparing for a fall 2014 release, and continuation of The Mouth of Mojo tour, which will have the band trekking across The U.S. and Europe in the coming months.
