John “Gio” Eule was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio.
John started his musical endeavors at the age of 11, this was shortly after he saw the Beatles at
Cleveland Municipal Stadium in the summer of August of 1966. He was invited to the Beatles concert by
Steve Anderson who is the son of the late Ernie Anderson (Ghoulardi and the Voice of ABC). After the
concert, the young musicians formed a band consisting of Anderson on drums and Eule on guitar.
After relocating to Mentor Ohio, John performed in cover bands that played at various venues such as
the Painesville, YMCA, Mentor Burger Chef, and many private events and parties.
Eule joined the US Navy in 1974 and formed a band that would perform rock cover songs to large
audiences in the hanger bay of the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy. After the Navy, John returned to
Mentor to live and worked at Record Shack delivering phonograph records to Chicago and the
In late 1978, John was transferred to the newly opened Record Shack in the Los Angeles area. He then
started performing in biker cover bands. Getting tired of playing cover songs John joined an LA original
band as guitar and back up singer. John then started to get competitive with the writers of the band and
started writing songs of his own. After not getting his songs into the Live set list John then formed his
own original band Harpeggio. This was the point John’s nickname became “Gio” which was short for
Giovanni. This was a 5‐piece band that showcased all Gio’s original songs and an electric classical Harp.
During this timeline, Gio also produced and released a 45 record under “Gio and the Proteens”. The 45’s
A side titled “Born to Surf” and the B side “There Was a Time”. Later, “There Was a Time” became a
track on the album “It’s Always Halloween in Hollywood”.
After a Harpeggio performance at FM Station, Gio was approached by Neal Doughty from REO
Speedwagon to compose some new songs together. Neal and Gio wrote two songs as a team, one of the
songs “Someday Soon” was recorded with Neal on Keys/Key Bass, Gary Richrath on Guitar, and Gio on
Vocals. Gio wrote the lyrics and Neal composed the music.
The band Harpeggio performed at all the major clubs in the Los Angeles area and in the two years they
were together and spent time in the studio recording. After the group disbanded, Gio continued writing
and recording in his home studio.
In 2003, Gio formed a 4‐piece band named Giojamm and started performing the LA club circuit and
recorded the album “It’s Always Halloween in Hollywood”.
In the late 2000’s, for gigs, Gio would get together with friends and perform at places like the Hard Rock
Café in Hollywood under the name of GioJamm. Gio continues to write and record at every opportunity.
