The Casanovas were originally formed in 1999 with all three original members hailing from Melbourne, Australia. The Casanovas was the brainchild of brothers, Tommy and Patrick Boyce and original bassist, Jimmy Lewis. The Boyce brothers met Jim while working together scrubbing pots & pans in the back kitchen of Pattersons cake shop in Windsor, Melbourne. The idea of the name ‘The Casanovas’ was partly inspired by the look of the ‘Casablanca’ records logo that featured on early Kiss vinyls that they all grew up listening to.

The size of the rock that we produce transcends what the human and animal brain can take in. The bowels empty, the cerebral cortex shuts down. To be truly MAMMOTH, both sonically and visually, each member is united in their willingness to bleed, bleed from the fingers, bleeds from the face and bleed from the goat bag.
