Hailing from sunny South Florida, The Gist brings original rock music to the masses. With choppy guitar lines juxtaposed with melodic riffs and funky bass, The Gist offers a show that never fails to draw and captivate a crowd. <br />Though the music is paramount, The Gist’s showmanship rivets audiences with visual effects, a charismatic front man and an inviting presence that fill the dance floor. <br /><br />Since their inception in November of 2007, The Gist has been rapidly gaining notoriety throughout South Florida. Their first EP, Super Duper Uber, was released in July 2008. Their first scripted music video, “Believe”, was released in HD in January of 2009, and their first full-length album is due in March. <br /><br />The Gist is comprised of front man Greg Wise on vocals and guitar, Pete on lead guitar and backing vocals, Yeti the Abominable Bassman on tasty grooves and Capital T on drums. Their influences combine to create music with the energy of AC/DC and the quirkiness of Weezer. Upbeat, poppy and above all fun; take a listen and get The Gist.
