Biography :

2002 Geos arrived in the UK from Argentina with some tunes he wrote, by May the same year, he ended up in a bar called Fusilier & Firkin in Camden Town where he met all local musicians including Richie Faulkner.

Geos and Richie started to record some demo songs in 2004. Still there was no right guy to put vocals on the tunes until later the same year Geos met K.Ghibli. K was working as a manager in a warehouse which was selling supplies to where Geos was working. One day, K and Geos started to talk about music and they both found that they liked similar bands and that they were both musicians. They exchanged a couple of demo’s and really liked what they were hearing from both sides. Unfornately K couldn’t commit at the time due to another project he was working on.

Time passed by and Geos still writing new tunes and late 2007 he met Bruno ‘The Cat’ (drummer/producer) who just arrived in London introduced by Ricky Mourao, an awesome guitarist who played at that time in that Camden Town Rock bar. Bruno agreed to help Geos record his album and then it all came together. Geos introduced Richie to Bruno who was amazed by Richie’s playing skills, K was available and put some vocals on a couple of songs, but Geos was still looking for a drummer, and shortly after Richie recorded his first guitars for the project Bruno officially joined and Ace Mafia was born. Richie at some point 2008/2009 had to go on tour with Lauren Harris so the band couldn’t really do much more than carry on writing songs and recording them.

By that time Ben Lundy joined the band as Richie was in and out due to touring with L. Harris. Richie then came and joined back and it was a 5 piece band.

End of 2009 The album was finished and ‘Vicious Circle’ was independently released. AM played at venues like the Hard-Rock Cafe, O2 islington Academy 2 and a few other venues around London. The Album release gig was at The Gaff (no longer exists unfortunately.)

2011 Richie Faulkner joins Judas Priest and Bruno moves to L.A. for good both leaving Ace Mafia. The band had booked gigs to play but no drummer, Geos knew an amazing one, friend of a friend called Jerry who he phoned immediately, Jerry listened to the songs and liked the band and joined straight away. The band carried on until 2012, but had to stop unfortunately due to personal problems of some members and therefore couldn’t commit at the time.

25th January 2018 Ace Mafia (Ben, K, Jerry, Geos) had a meeting and decided that it was the right time to get back together. AM are currently mixing and mastering the New EP which will be released sometime in 2018, Snakes and Ladders video to be released soon along with two acoustic videos and an Album to be released sometime in 2019. It features some recordings with Richie Faulkner. Come Back gig, EP release, Videos, Tour, and Album release to be announced.
