Background:

Based in North County, Gino & the Lone Gunmen perform swing, rockabilly, jump blues, and vintage rock and roll, as well as favorites from Elvis and Buddy Holly to the Cavern Club days of the Beatles.

The group is led by singer/guitarist Gino Meregillano (the Stilettos, No Dice, Fabulous Pelicans, Mo Wasabi, the Guana Batz). Stand-up bassist Mark Thomas (Mark Stuart & the Bastard Sons, Moot Davis, Los Mocosos, Pete Anderson) is a studio and touring musician from the L.A. area, though the band also sometimes performs with bass player Joe Jazdzewski (the Paladins, Billy Watson). Drummers have included audio engineer Mike Trimble, Bob Sales (the Pink Floyd Experience, Rockola), and Blake Oswald.

In early 2010, a self-titled full-length CD of original music was released. They played the Viva Las Vegas festival in 2012.
