Unikorn on the Cob
Land of Chocolate is a melodic progressive rock band that was formed out of the breakup of the universally acclaimed jazz/fusion/avant rock band Finneus Gauge, who were not only selected as 'One of the 10 Best in the Current Progressive Underground' in the January 1999 issue of Guitar World, but also had it's debut album 'More Once More' chosen as one of the 'Top Five Albums of 1997' (Keyboard Magazine). Land of Chocolate continues to push the boundaries of today's music by incorporating elements of jazz, rock, fusion, and funk into a musical smorgasbord of keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. Add on delectable melodies, fun-filled yet thought-provoking lyrics, and soaring multi-part vocal harmonies, and you'll see why it's easy to get caught up in the Chocolate fix. Taking on the dual role of keyboardist and lead vocalist, Jonn Buzby (ex-Finneus Gauge) is joined in Land of Chocolate by John Covach (guitars, backing vocals), Gerald Wilson (bass, backing vocals) and Wes Hare (drums). Together, the four musicians bring an impressive array of recording and performance credentials to the table, along with a built-in fanbase that has been well established through each individual's prior and current projects. Unikorn on the Cob, Land of Chocolate's debut release, presents the bands' wares in stunning fashion. LOC has recorded a stellar debut, with over 60 minutes of complex and innovative music that leaves the listener wanting more.
