SomeKindaWonderful are currently entertaining crowds across the country with their genre-bending music that injects energy into every listener and brings them to life.  They are currently out on the 34 date US Fall tour opening for New Politics and Bad Suns.  This past weekend, they made a stop in San Francisco and performed at the legendary Fillmore.  It was amazing to see finally catch this band live. SomeKindaWonderful is:

  • Jordy Towers – Vocals/lyrics
  • Matt Gibson – Guitar
  • Ben Schigel – Drums
  • Justin Andres – Bass/Keys
  • Sarah Dryer – Vocals/Percussion

These five are pure entertainment when they hit the stage. You cannot categorize them simply by placing them in a genre checkbox, they bring so many great elements of alternative, rock, hip hop, soul, grunge and so much more. Their refreshing sound will become true music to your ears as they jump start your love of all music. The crowd went wild at the Fillmore and even more so when they performed their hit, Reverse which is a love story gone wrong – written chronologically backwards.  “I don’t think anyone’s ever written a song backwards before,” Jordy explains about writing Reverse. “It was the first song we wrote together as a band, the night we met; that was the song we wrote and we didn’t even know each other. We met in the bar writing that song. It kind of set the tone for us. Before we even thought of putting out a single or doing anything…that was our song.” Each member stands out on the stage with their magnetic personalities exhibiting captivating stage presence. For an opening band, you could not have asked for anything more as they really pumped up the crowd and started the night off right.  We had the chance to interview them before their set and are going to be bringing that to you later this week. Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:
