The Honey Toads
The Honey Toads
Formed by four longtime friends, The Honey Toads have grown together over the years on both personal and musical levels. Meeting in their first year of high school, Nick Cafiero (electric ukulele/vocals), Joe DeMars (bass), Jack Hogan (guitar), and Dominic Bergamini (drums) cut their teeth generating original material and honing their meticulously tight sound to give shape to the band’s current form.

While historically many groups splinter after graduation, big life changes, and personal tragedies, The Honey Toads have remained a constant in each of the members’ lives. The group’s consistency and stability in the face of the ever-changing times can be felt in their intense drive and measured determination to convey their intent to the listener.

Although the idea of nostalgia is a constant theme in their music, the quartet doesn’t live in the past. Instead, each member has channeled their experiences into a melodic complexity and poetic openness that resonates with their local scene of Petaluma, CA and beyond. The fluid nature of each song and the assured delivery of every note and verse speaks to the solidity of four intertwined paths, years in the making.

New single, Send Me Out, pines for a love from the past while still forging ahead. Drawing upon personal feelings of nostalgia and longing, Cafiero builds upon a constantly crumbling foundation in a concerted effort to talk with the past. As the song explodes into a continuously evolving guitar solo, the catharsis of the breakdown helps to find relief at the end of tragedy.

The Sanctions
The Sanctions, made up of 17-year-old Sedona Hernadez (vocals), 18-year-old Sean Gustafson (guitar), 16-year-old Nathan Cook (drums), and 17-year-old Sophia Marin (bass), are typically known by Sonoma Couty locals for their loud blues rock-influenced sound. Building a fanbase playing local venues, the four have proven to be different than other bands their age. From loud drum kits and amps to stripped down acoustic shows, The Sanctions love performing anywhere and everywhere. They're first single "Rearview" comes out January 25th.
