Gato Loco was born from the streets of New York. Exotic and foreign, yet simultaneously urban and familiar. Their live show delivers an instant party filled with celebration and joy; like a decadent latin mambo ballroom, thrown in the midst of a 21st century rock show : this is BIG music!

Formed in 2006 by NYC native Stefan Zeniuk, the group takes its cues from scratchy pre-war Cuban records and vintage betty boop cartoons, while freely incorporating a modern schizoid mentality. Incorporating equal parts latin, rock, and jazz, Gato Loco is not genre music. It is tightly written, thrilling and confusing, killing boredom with thought, with passion, with power. Mysterious, yes. Ambiguous, no.
