All night, each band will take the stage where world famous acts like Pink Floyd, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Snoop Dogg, the Black-Eyed Peas, and Jimmy Buffet have left their mark as headliners, and show us exactly why THEY deserve to win a spot on the main stage at the official Fiesta del Sol.

If that wasn’t enough, check this out – the performers won’t be the only ones with a prize on the line.

SHAKEN AND STIRRED:
Whether its a private party, corporate event, or charity gala we can tailor our music and production to fit your needs. Get ready to be Shaken and Stirred! Classic Rock, 80’s Rock, Alternative, Country, Pop.
STATIC ON THE STEREO:
Amassed from the ashes of various punk rock roots and bands comes STATIC ON THE STEREO. With high-octane live shows and singer Mike Bentz leading onstage theatrics, it’s hard for crowds to contain themselves on the floor. SOTS music is inspired from the energy-laden punk shows of the 90’s and 2000’s stemming from the old school, and often times smelly, concert halls of Southern California.
Hailing from Chicago, Darrick Ofenloch (drums, recording/mixing) and Nate Moeder (guitar, vox) of SoCal quickly found synergy with their recording and writing backgrounds for precision punk rock. Bass player Doug Gilbert adds the rumble and inspiration to the group.
Together, this band prides itself on being self-recorded. Releasing new material when it wants to. Playing shows that kick you in the face. And offers no apologies – unless you get hit by a shoe. Check them out on iTunes/Spotify/Amazon – but only if you like to have fun in the pit, or enjoy an occasional stage dive onto your buddy’s head… If not, forget it.
THE GOOD POUR:
We are a group of longtime friends who all attended SDSU, and started playing/singing together recently. We play some covers and some originals, a mix of rock, blues, and a little country. We have a strong North County Coastal connection with members residing in Solana Beach, Encinitas and Carlsbad.
