Tiny Boxes was founded by Bon Lozaga, whose enduring commitment to fusion and prog-rock has won him a loyal global following. Soaring melodies, epic solos, and funk-infused rhythms have been central to his approach since his days in Gong during the band’s classic late- ’70s Expresso II period—playing alongside Allan Holdsworth—through to Gongzilla and now with Tiny Boxes.
The band is rounded out by a group of seasoned musicians who also compose for the group; Leo Kishore (Barefoot Manner, Funkuponya) on Bass, Kyle Poehling (Rebus, Modern Robot) on Drums, and singer-songwriter / multi-instrumentalist Matt Williams (The Ocean, Zansa) on Violin, Guitar, and Mandolin.
Tiny Boxes blends progressive musicality with groove together in a solid rock band package.
Having the ability to navigate complex instrumental excursions with ease and tackle creatively crafted songs as well, Tiny Boxes is making waves on the music scene. Their live show is winning new fans and turning heads wherever they perform. Several noted shows have included members of Umphreys Mcgee, Mudvayne and moe. joining their musical foray.
The release of the their debut recording, “Tiny EP” in 2012, showcases the bands capacity to mix musical styles and transform them into memorable songs full of character with creative twists and turns.
The first time that Dennis, Zach, Elie, and Ben jammed together in the basement of Makayan, it was a dark and stormy night. As the song they were playing gently morphed itself into Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” the intensity and fusion of the sounds they were creating were continuously rising to uncharted territories of jamming. Suddenly they reached a peak that was terrifyingly beautiful with sounds so sacred that only the four humans who created them were allowed to hear them for a split second, and at that instant their house was struck by a bolt of lightning. The three guitarists were instantly shocked through their guitars and Ben, not yet an official member of Makayan, was hit by a bolt of electricity which shot two feet between an unplugged guitar cable and his drum set, leaving his foot with a burning sensation for a few days. realizing the abnormality of this occurrence, the four musicians stood watching the storm through the open garage door realizing that there must be some great message which the spirit of the earth was trying to relay to them. a few days later the decision was made to add Ben to band, and this was Makayan.
