A2B’s vibrant retro-pop infused sound blurs the lines of folk-rock,pop,blues,jazz and zydeco. Their lively show features well-crafted tunes and irresistible pop melodies. Singing about life’s travels, relationships and reappraisals, this roots quartet has a vintage vibe, tight harmonies and California flavor!
Sometimes loosely described as folk due to their instrumentation, the genre hardly begins to describe this Northern California band's distinctive sound. Their musical world evokes a nostalgic response as it draws from jazz, folk, blues, country, zydeco and beyond. A2B's lively songs invite listeners on a playful journey of relatable tales and everyday humanity. Their signature feel-good-happy-sad songs are just what you need!
