Bruce Lofgren's 18 Piece Leviathan
Bruce has had a long and varied musical career with its beginnings in Blues and Rock. He was influenced by artists and groups that were popular when he began forming early musical impressions growing up in Seattle: Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, B. B. King, and Billy Butler (guitarist with the Bill Doggett Combo).

As the BLJO was in its developmental stages, Bruce began working more frequently in the L.A. jazz and pop scene, scoring gigs with such notable and influential artists as: Bobby Darin, Percy Faith Orchestra, Pat Upton and the Spiral Starecase, Brazilian percussionist Airto Morierra, and singer, Flora Purim. This expanded his knowledge of Brazilian music and odd meters.

As a guitarist Lofgren also gigged with Tony Rizzi and his Five Guitars plus Four, a unique and challenging group which performed the music of Charlie Christian harmonized for five guitars. In this group were such great players as: Tony Rizzi, Jimmy Wyble, Pete Christlieb, Grant Geissman, Tim May, Tom Ranier, and Jeff Hamilton, Tommy Tedesco, and Steve Carnelli.
