Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


"Wonderboom" is a 4 piece South African rock band from Johannesburg.

They formed in 1996 when Martin, Wade and Cito, originally in an underground band called "The Eight Legged Groove Machine", were approached by Danny, the drummer for the popular rock band, "The Electric Petals" and their manager, Patrick Horgan.

Originally they formed a funk-rock supergroup "The Electric Petal Groove Machine". Two weeks after the combination of the two groups, the band then still known as "The Electric Petal Groove Machine", opened for Simple Minds on their South African tour.

Not completely happy with their temporary name, in the Summer of 1997, a sign caught Cito's eye, just outside of the Freestate town of Kroonstad, pointing to a little town called "Wonderboom".
