Locochino is an energy-packed, crowd-engaging “Progadelic Jamfunk” band from Gainesville, FL.  Their show has been described as an adventure, at times guiding you on a trip across the galaxy and at others inciting a celebratory rage that satisfies and inspires.  The band has successfully embraced the diversity of each member’s musical background, pulling off a blend of rock, funk, jam, and psychedelic sounds that keep their audience attentive.

“[Locochino] takes you on a psychedelic whirlwind of sound that makes you feel like you’ve unearthed something new.”
The Alligator
“I had seen Locochino once before, but based on this performance I clearly didn’t hear them, at least not properly. Because they killed it.”
Scott Hopkins, Editor-in-Chief, Music Fest News
“Locochino is an example of the untapped, saturated talent that has been fueling the local music scene.”
Gainesville Scene
“an awesome blend of seemingly unblend-able genres, which showcases the group’s creativity and funky fearlessness.”

Formed in September of 2014 and climbing steeply from the band’s initial goal of “playing at least one show,” energetic fans pushed the band to new heights in 2016 when Locochino performed at Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, Suwannee Hulaween, Hometeam New Years Rally, Farm to Family Music Festival, and other multi-day music festivals in the southeastern United States. With new festival bookings continuing to reach more distant regions, Locochino shows no signs of slowing and continues to bring new flavor to each performance.

Locochino is Benny Cannon, Blake Briand, Brian Johnson, Ryan Hiers and Dave Johnson.
Past members, forever a part of the band, include Nick Melms, Sam Coplin, and Alan Garver.
