Zegovia was established on April 18th, 2015 by guitarist and singer Seth Mireles, drummer Matt Mireles, and bassist Scott Dunn. Originally a fun way to get together and share their common interest in music, they decided to step it up, give it a name, and turn their project into a full on band. The band however was still not complete. At the time of the formation, they were looking for a 2nd guitar player, but played as a trio for a short amount of time. Unfortunately, before they found their next band member, Scott had to leave the band and that gave Seth and Matt the challenge to try and find the next members.
They got their wish when Seth's high school band program was hosting an event to bring in guest musicians to play. Thanks to fellow interest in the guitar position, Seth met Joseph Cunningham. Zegovia had been experimenting with different musicians and different sounds before finally bringing Joseph into the band full time as rhythm guitar player a full year later. The band also needed a bass player, and thanks to a mandatory summer school course, both Seth and Matt met bassist Madison Shindler and the full line-up was finally established.
Zegovia draws musical inspirations from different artists and genres, including: The Ramones, Sublime, Cage The Elephant, Jeff Rosenstock, Blink-182, Smashing Pumpkins, Residual Kid, Ugly Kid Joe, and many more.
Zegovia releases all of their recorded music on Spotify, iTunes, and many other streaming/download services and is currently unsigned.
The bands EP/demo "We Call It Art" came out on April 20, 2017 and proved to be a local success due to high streaming numbers and physical copies sold despite not being able to tour in support of the project.
The band plans on releasing more material in the months to come and is anticipating more live shows in the near future.
