The Gufs began as an eastside Milwaukee band in 1988, with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee students Goran Kralj and Scott Schwebel. Kralj and Schwebel, roommates and teammates on UWM's soccer team, recruited Kralj's younger brother, Dejan Kralj (still in high school in Northwestern Indiana), and high school friend Tony Luna, to round-off the quartet on bass and lead guitar. After a few years of playing local eastside Milwaukee bars, the band lineup changed, as Luna left to pursue a career in sound engineering in 1990, opening the way for Marquette University student and Milwaukee native Morgan Dawley to fill the vacancy. The band soon gained momentum, performing more frequently throughout the city, and developing their trademark sound.
