Band


The Wikipedia definition of Bezel is “A band of metal containing a groove” so it’s a name that fit’s the sound of the band.
Since the 2014 release of their self-titled debut CD the band BEZEL have shared the stage with music legends Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock, Pat Travers, Kings X, Queensryche, Lynch Mob, Blackfoot, Lillian Axe, Junkyard, Cheetah Chrome, Diamond Head, Joe Lynn Turner, Alcatrazz, The Graham Bonnet Band, Andy Timmons, and Uli Jon Roth. Consisting of four veteran musicians who bring with them extensive musical experiences that have taken them from Texas to Tokyo, Los Angeles and back, each band member has definitely paid their dues in learning their craft. When these four musicians got together to create original music it quickly became obvious that there was definitely something in the air. With a new, unique and wide ranging sound BEZEL manages to own their influences while avoiding tired clichés and instead breathing fresh new life into the music. Since the debut CD was entirely written, recorded, produced and mixed by the band, Bezel was able to stay true to their vision of the finished product without outside influences. Fresh sounding quality guitar rock that doesn’t sound like anything you’ve heard before! No auto-tune, no sequencers, no drum machines, just real musicians laying down real music.
