Gaylord: What’s In A Name? If the name of the game is charm, then Rochester’s Gaylord win. Not only have they chosen a word that I haven’t heard since third grade for a band name—unless you count in Meet The Parents, which I don’t—but their music also has a unique quirkiness to match. Touching on punk, metal, jazz, funk and surf rock stylistically, it might just be what Mr.Bungle might have been if they’d had a little soul. Propelled by the guitars of Core Atoms and the ferocious jazz drumming of Andrew Verstraete, not to mention the bass/vocal work of Jeff Steverson, the trio are a three-man mobile party unit, the kind of act you’d see rocking out in PCU if it were made today and George Clinton couldn’t do it for whatever reason.
