800 lb. Gorilla is a rock/jam band based in Indianapolis, Indiana. With a rock and roll core, the band pulls together funk and jazz influences to create driving, catchy, danceable grooves. A five-piece band, 800 lb. Gorilla places rock-solid guitar, funky keyboards and sax on top of a drums-and-bass rhythm section. The band’s original music blends indie-esque songcraft with funky, jazzy improvisation.

Originally formed by brothers Mark (guitar) and Daniel (lead vox) Humphrey, the band has evolved from a hard-rock power trio into a funk and jazz style after adding Kwame Newton (keyboards/alto sax) and Connor Allen (bass) to the collaboration. 800 lb. Gorilla has enjoyed a warm welcome from music lovers as they have developed their show on stages across Indiana and Ohio. The band intends to take the musical interplay higher, and continue to reach music lovers far and wide.
