Gonzo's Nose is the most popular party band in the Washington, D.C. area. Now in its twelfth year, the band has performed over 600 shows in five countries (including on the floor of the Verizon Center -- following Bill Cosby -- for the arena's 10 year anniversary). With hundreds of songs in its play list, Gonzo's can perform for fifteen hours without repeating a number, selecting music ranging from the 1980s all the way to hits that are in today's top 40.

In addition to its club schedule, the band performs for corporate parties, (including those for Verizon, AOL, Sallie Mae, Ernst and Young, and Capitol One); at university events; for events to benefit charities; and for weddings.

Gonzo's Nose was recently featured in Modern Bride Magazine as one of the best wedding bands in the entire country.
