Hometown: Athens, GA (USA)


Some bands take off instantly; others struggle for years and then break through only to be called the overnight success story.

Guff is the latter. And they have more than paid their dues along the way. Since they formed in 1999, Guff has played almost 700 shows for everyone from Sum 41, Big Wig, Flogging Molly, Strung Out and The Aquabats to Dynamite Boy, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Citizen Fish. On one early tour when their van broke down and they had no money to repair it, they volunteered for a medical research program that would pay them enough to buy a new van and continue the tour. Guff's guitarist Jay received over 46 shots in 11 days!

Guff's new record "Symphony of Voices," was produced by Charlie Paulson of Goldfinger and Noah Shain (Orson).

"Symphony of Voices" is Guff but better. It still has their fun–loving spirit, but with a newfound immediacy not heard on earlier releases.

And check this out: while Guff was in the studio, Steve Perry, the legendary lead singer of Journey, walked in to visit a friend. He was so impressed with Guff that he showed up unannounced two days later and asked Guff to cover an unreleased Journey Song. Steve not only produced the song "I Can See It In Your Eyes" but also sang on it! The Track has already been played nationwide on Joe Benson's syndicated "Off The Record" radio show (heard in over 100 markets) and additionally on SM Satellite Radio.

Guff will be on the road non–stop once "Symphoy Of Voices" is released. They will play on this year's Warped Tour, open for Goldfinger this fall, and headline shows anywhere and everywhere.
