Me As An Island…these guys can really sings

This acoustic duo from Napa has the sickest harmonies. When they start to sing the room gets quiet.

Mike and Alex were previously in a band called “Us As A Nation” and decided to get together to perform some acoustic music. Their voices fit extremely well together. They write their own music and come up with some crazy cool mash ups.

So young and so talented!

I cannot believe how many young bands really rock. They just need a place to rock in! A few weeks ago these three bands rocked Napa’s local pool hall Billco’s. They rattled the windows. Check them out!

Us As A Nation…Napa Battle Winners


by Samantha Madnick

Here are some pictures of the band that won the Napa Battle of The Bands a few weeks ago, Us As A Nation. All the bands did really great but Us As A Nation had the stage presence and the crowd was into it. These guys have the potential to really make it the music industry.

You can check them out on Facebook and they have a  kickstarter page where they are trying to make some money to record their album.
