The group features singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Knight. As All Music Guide (www.allmusic.com) poignantly noted about Mark's previous work in Bang Tango, "...the hard rockin' quintet was one of the few...groups to incorporate funk into its sound - some time before the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More made it acceptable to do so..." It was from this foundation that Knight would ultimately spawn Gravy.
After the original line up of Bang Tango had sold close to a combined million records, and then disbanded in the early 90's, Knight moved back to Malibu and launched his musical evolution by getting back to his musical roots and writing songs which reflected his influences from great 70's bands such as Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.
Knight would soon hook up with guitarist Mark Tremalgia who shared Knight's vision to form a band whose sole purpose was to play music from their hearts, simply for the sake of playing music.
Mark Knight also invited keyboardist Erik Szabo to bring his Hammond B-3 to the project to perfect the old school classic rock sound which had been missing from the music scene for so long.
The search for the perfect rhythm section for this band led to Bass player Rocc Thomas, who was producing tracks for several MCA artists when he got the call from former band mate Mark Tremalgia. Mark T. invited Rocc for a special jam session at the Malibu Inn where it was obvious he was the man for the job.
The final role was filled by drummer Jon Biggs whose solid groovin' rock style reminiscent of Jon Bonham was a perfect fit for the band.
After playing several shows during a residence at a local Malibu club, the band decided to record a couple of tracks, and endeavor which resulted in their 15 song release entitled "Bones".
