Local Latin funk band Gunzawless -- composed of the Gonzales brothers Frank, Pete, and Paul, Matt Vaiza (a cousin), and Mike "Cheeba" De La Torre -- is steadily gaining a reputation for deft musicianship and a tight live show. The band even has a “space and time” mantra, according to lead guitarist/vocalist Frank Gonzales: “There’s always an urge to show off when you’re performing, to be the hot player. It took a lot of maturity and growing together as a band to avoid playing like you're Eddie Van Halen and to keep the musical spaces between the notes simple.” Not bad, considering that our favorite mantra used to be "no TV and no beer make Homer go crazy."
