This is a band that is creating waves in the US. They are from the town of Frankenmuth Michigan, just outside of the city of Saginaw. The band name is taken from a lady who lives in the town, and has nothing to do with any European history or influence, in case you were wondering. There are three brothers including twins Josh and Jake, and from what I understand at the time of writing, the boys are still in high school! GVF deliver old school hard rock, fused with some southern influences too. If you dig oldies such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and some 80's bands like Tesla and Tora Tora, be sure to find this debut EP pronto.

The Songs
GVF show their credentials on the opener 'Highway Tune'. This band sound like a bunch of seasoned musicians. Hard to imagine this lot are still at school. Check out 'Safari Song' which fuses Led Zeppelin and Creed to good effect, believe it or not. Or the southern special of 'Flower Power', OMG is this a reincarnated Robert Plant? The title track is a smokey and groovy number, with Josh Kizska the star of the show with that special voice of his. Bloody hell..

In Summary
GVF will apparently release three EP's in the near future, this being the first. This could be a band to watch. Get in the queue now..
