We’ve been groovin’ at the beach for over 40 years, but last Fall we gave you something to rock to with our first annual Battle of the Bands.

They performed and you voted…

Taking the Main Stage for Fiesta del Sol 2020 are 1st and 2nd place winners: April and the Funk Junkies & The Good Pour! 


Stay Tuned for our 2nd Annual Battle of the Bands Coming Fall 2020.

Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach
$15.00 Admission | 21+

Join us Fall 2020 for 2nd Annual Fiesta del Sol Battle of the Bands. Here, we will have local bands fight for the chance to take home the glory of Best Band and a spot in Fiesta del Sol 2021’s Main Line-Up! 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.

We know jamming out can get you to work up a sweat but don’t worry, we’ve got that covered. With only the best in house, enjoy amazing drink and food specials to help you recharge. If that wasn’t enough, check this out – the performers won’t be the only ones with a prize on the line. Throughout the night, we will be raffling off special prizes and selling Solana Beach merchandise, giving you a chance to take something home too!

This is a night you won’t want to miss! Only $15 admission and you will receive a free raffle ticket with entry.

Tickets can be purchased through the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce or directly from the Belly Up or online.

Thank you to all of the bands who competed:

April and the Funk Junkies
Pearl Jammed
Shaken and Stirred

The Good Pour


April and the Funk Junkies are one of San Diego’s premier dance bands! 

This stellar group of performers is led on vocals by Solana Beach resident, April Mosebrook. The original Funk Junkies were founded in 2013, and the current group of extraordinary musicians brings this group to its performing peak! The members have over 100 years of combined performing experience, including time spent on stage with artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Jason Mraz, George Clinton, The Gap Band, Barry White and more! April and the Funk Junkies will get YOU up on your feet while THEY get down with the groove! Their unique blend of rhythm, soul, and hi-energy fun(k!), is addictive and will leave you wanting more. Whether it’s Disco, R&B, Pop, Rock , or just plain Funk, this exceptional band covers the music you love from the 70’s through today, and never fails to surprise or entertain you. Get Hooked NOW with April and the Funk Junkies!




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.
