Vonzeles (Von – Zel – us) is a team of talented artists whose passion for music commands people’s attention and lures them to listen attentively. Creating music about the fun and enjoyable aspects of life is just the beginning of the musical and social movement Vonzeles represents. The spirituality and consciousness of the band is clearly felt in their music and forms the basis for their energy and enjoyment of the physical world we create and live in. Vonzeles’ hard work, perseverance, energy and presentation of live shows cement all listeners with the soul of Vonzeles.
Vonzeles live performances have caused front row women to cry over the heartbreak of “I Remember” make people hop like “Sex Machines”, or rebel against the “End Of Days”, and that’s just the “Half Of It”. The truth is Vonzeles has what everyone is looking for. Vonzeles dares to defy the system, government, or any force that prevents the human body from fully and completely living the human experience. The highly anticipated 2nd release from Vonzeles, the “Next One”, was released in September 2007. Their new single “I Remember” is quickly becoming an underground hit as news of Vonzeles’ rising continues. Internet radio and local radio have begun airing the song and look to play additional Vonzeles music. The Vonzeles debut album New Existence was released in October, 2004. The band toured over 20 states in one year, and sold every piece of merchandise and CD they manufactured. The band has performed extensively for years including major festival events such as Velocity Tour, and Orange County Choppers (OCC) Motorcycle Fest and was most recently at the Sturgis Rally by the Buffalo Chip Campgrounds. Don’t be jealous; it’s just Vonzeles

Vonzeles "Next One" album review
By Robert Benson
With their new CD called “The Next One,” the hard-rocking quartet Vonzeles is making musical waves with their unique melding of precision power rock that is making the music industry stand up and take notice.
Their CD is full of raw intensity, indescribable power and is a rare collection of fresh rock melodies. This rocking band from Tolleson, Arizona hits the mark hard with cuts like the arena-ready rocker “New Existence,” the Candlebox-like, slow tempo sounds of the cut “Feel Good” and the acid-flavored funk and heavy bass lines of the song “Sex Machine.”
But Vonzeles brings down the house with cuts like “I Remember,” an affectionate ballad with Zeppelin-like acoustic guitar that explodes lyrically and musically (ala 3 Doors Down) into a song that people can relate to. The instrumental "This One," with more inspiring acoustics, appropriately serves as an introduction and compliment to "This Is Me," with rough-edged confessional lyrics and rapid-fire, high voltage guitar work adroitly reflecting the song's rage and bitterness.
“Useless Woman,” with its bold lyrics, is another heavy rocker with a fantastic lead guitar that meshes perfectly with the spitefully sung husky growl of Carl, the lead singer. Other cuts like “Cocked & Loaded,” full of fuzz guitar, heavy bass lines has the listener thinking Metallica is playing along with the band. The cuts “End Of Days,” “Half Of It” and “Next One” are all full of grungy guitar rock and all would be right at home on any heavy metal radio station play list.
All in all, “The Next One” is by far Vonzeles breakthrough CD, full of slashing riffs, explosive vocals and straight-up rock and roll. One can actually feel the music, something that every band or artist strives to achieve. Vonzeles has captured this element perfectly and does not let their listeners down.

Get ready to hit the highway. "The Next One" by Vonzeles is eleven tracks of pure adrenaline. The band is tight with a great relationship of gritty guitars, a hard driving rhythm section, and commanding vocals. There are no tricks in the bag with this CD. It is straight up rock by a very talented band. The band uses tight breaks and harmonies effectively on a number of tracks. "Cocked and Loaded" and "Feel Good" really hit the mark with great riffs and a flow that leaves you wanting more. "I Remember" is a powerful stadium ballad with soulful lyrics - a definite sing-along. This CD puts you on stage with the band and gets right down to the business of rock.-William F. and the RadioIndy Team
