Based in Sacramento, CA, Güero is comprised of 5 members; Rik Krull, Wes Davis, Russell Volksen, Mike Ruiz and Shea Ritchie. The group consists of lifelong skateboarders, photographers, and outdoor enthusiasts. They desire to express themselves collectively, each member being a key contributor to the overall sound. Focusing on originality, their songs have been curated over countless hours jamming on random progressions. This approach has brought a collective consciousness to the members, allowing them to get lost in the music when performing. Güero does not consider itself a jam band, instead they utilize the practice of jamming to bring forward ideas that would never have been conceived. Once a progression resonates they reign it in and bring structure to it.
