Yonatan Gat and his band are doing something you will not see anywhere else. The power trio sets up on the floor of every venue from giant clubs to basements—DIY style among sweaty dancing bodies—playing intricate improvisation sets that channel "everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s," (The Bay Bridged)
Gat's reverb-drenched guitar offensive takes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.

"Kaleidoscopic, a cosmically minded and punk-grounded improvisational journey" - SPIN

"Best Guitarist in New York, 2013" - Village Voice

"Monotonix guitar virtuoso Yonatan Gat has reinvented himself" - Time Out New York

"Yonatan Gat makes music that has no home. I say that because the guitarist and his band create a sound that is from seemingly everywhere and specifically nowhere at once, channeling everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s" - The Bay Bridged

"A stew of Brazilian psych, pan-African rock, explosive punk, and outre lo-fi indie. Gat leads you through his music's many changes with guitar playing so wildly inventive and freewheeling that it sounds like he's making it up as he goes."- Chicago Reader

"While Monotonix exploits every cubic inch of a venue with vigor, Gat seems to want to scour every corner of the world, with equal intensity" - Chattanooga Pulse

"More explosive and cathartic than anything you could ever see on a bigger stage" - NY Press

"A surprise musical miracle. Watching Yonatan Gat and his band perform will blow your mind. The former Monotonix member’s live show leans heavily on improvisation and borders on performance art, incorporating signature lighting and expelling an incredible barrage of sound. However, one of the most enjoyable parts of a Yonatan Gat show, especially if you’ve seen the band before, is watching the new listeners, the unsuspecting folks who happen to be at the bar on a mid-week night, as the show unfolds. One guy in the front row stands with his hand on his jaw, staring, transfixed. Another rolls his head around his shoulders in synchronicity to the jolts of the song, occasionally rocking forward suddenly to accompany sudden musical shifts; with a shocked expression, his eyes look like they might burst from their sockets. Yonatan Gat is currently performing one of the most incredible sets in small to medium venues. - Pop Press International
