The Gibson Block is an alternative rock group based in Edmonton, Alberta. Formed in 2008 while attending Grant MacEwan University, The Gibson Block is formed by band members Sebastjohn King (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Carson MacDonald (bassist, comic book reader), Denis Frigon (drummer) and Jonathan Lagore (guitar).
They began their musical careers as All the Kings Men, a cover band. While performing as All the Kings Men, the group performed covers of classic rock hits. The demand from their audience to have the band perform original songs was the birth of The Gibson Block. They spent most of 2012 and 2013 writing original pieces and extensively touring throughout Alberta and British Columbia.
In early 2014, The Gibson Block released a self-titled EP, was selected as Band of the Month for March by Edmonton’s alternative radio station Sonic 102.9FM’s Sonic Band of the Month for March 2014 and has been nominated by the Edmonton 2014 Music Awards “Artist to Watch” award and The Yeggies “Best in Music” award. They plan to continue to pushing boundaries in the Canadian music industry and delivering an electrifying and danceable sound for their fans and audience.
