When people ask us about what we love about the Sacramento music scene, we always talk about the Generals—a band with big, soaring melodies and evocative, inspiring sing-along tunes…and they’re two of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.
We got to meet the Generals when we played a show together at Chalk It Up in Sacramento’s Fremont Park, both of us booked by mutual friend and local legend Jerry Perry. The Generals’ frontman, Matt Sertich, stood in the sun—the 100 degree afternoon sun—to watch our set, which is something we will never forget. We did a CD swap after the show, caught their electric performance, then hit the road and popped their album into our player. And we’ve been fans ever since.

First, an enormous thank you to EACH and every one of you who voted for us in the Hard Rock Rising Competition last week. Thanks entirely to your votes, we’ll be playing in the live battle of the bands on Friday, March 9, in San Francisco on Pier 39 at 8:30 p.m. If you live in San Francisco or just will be there for whatever reason, come hang with us! It’s going to be fun, and it’s also entirely free!! We’re playing with two other awesome bands, fellow Sac band Iconoclast Robot and the bay area’s Cadent. Also, if you text UROCK to 99000, you’ll also get a 20% discount on merchandise and meals (alcohol excluded). We’re very excited about this show.
We have a couple other really cool shows coming up that we’d love to see you at!

And it’s here.
After an amazing CD Release Party last night in a packed Café Cordiale with some awesome people and great music from the Gregg Bissonette Quintet, our new album, Stop & Go, is officially out! It’s soaking through the digital retail scene and you can find it on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and more all around the world. We are so excited for it!
As in the last EP, there are no liner notes in this one, but there are SO many people we want to thank for their help in making this all come together, especially…
