About Us

Since 2001, Gel have entertained thousands  throughout the Twin Cities area and beyond.  Known for their variety of fun alternative music  and driving hard rock - all presented in an animated stage show, Gel is the Ultimate Rock And Roll Variety Band, designed to entertain.  These elements helped earn the group the title of "Best Rock Band - Reader's Choice" in the City Pages 2002, and a nomination for "Best Cover Band" in the 2003 Minnesota Music Awards. 

Front man Brent (formerly of Blackout), after having been friends with the band for nearly a decade, has joined the Gel ranks and fits seamlessly with his welcoming stage presence and dynamic vocal range. His ability to excite a crowd speaks for itself.

Bassist Jim and Drummer Eric, the backbone of the group since the band's beginning, lend their vocal harmonies when needed, and keep a solid groove throughout. 

Guitarist Tony comes with an impressive background, from Blackout to Tragic Dream/The LRC fame. His off the cusp, yet tightly focused style and groove help further define the essence of a great rock show.
