THE CRUZ BROTHERS ARE NOW GARBAGE KNIGHT

Garbage Knight Band

     Originally founded by brothers Phil and PJ Cruz in 2013, the band has a wide range of musical influences and an energetic live performance. Their original music has its influential roots in music from bands like The Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Deftones, Alice in Chains, and other popular hard rock, blues, and grunge groups.

     Phil Cruz, the lead guitarist and vocalist, provides what he calls “the icing on the cake” with driving leads and resonant, powerful vocals.

     PJ Cruz, the percussionist, forms the backbone of Garbage Knight by utilizing a variety of instruments and a diverse mix of rhythms to keep the sound tight yet provocative.

     Taylor Benson, who performs on bass guitar and keyboards, adds a captivating stage performance and deep, thundering textures to the mix.

   Previously endorsed by Dean guitars and having served as a Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Brand Ambassador, Garbage Knight is proud to represent these companies.

     Committed to bringing tight, live performances and maintaining an energetic environment, the band is dedicated to their passion for music.

     They are driven to become the best songwriters, performers, and musicians they can be.
