the Bongo Furys / Bio

With the crazy idea to find some really, really (I did say "really") good musicians, guitarist Todd Perez launched the Bongo Furys as a Frank Zappa tribute band with keyboardist Will Scharf and bassist Tommy Borsdorf.

Building the lineup took a lot of patience and a lot of drummers (talking Spinal Tap drummer situation) produced the core lineup (guitar, bass, keys, sax, and drums) with the talent to respectably traverse from Jazz, Blues, Rock, Fusion, Latin, and more.

Starting out playing the college scene performing Zappa material the Bongo Furys have honed their skills, now stepping out on their own playing Blues and Jazz shows building a diverse fan-base in the NorCal region, often recruiting special guest performers from other area bands (Sol Peligro, The Spotted Dog Blues Band, etc..) extending the sound to make every show as fresh as the first one.

"No hall too small, no gig too big."
