Aloha Radio could be called a SoCal surf band. But that barely describes what they actually do. Although their style is reminiscent of ’60s surf rock and surf pop, their sound goes beyond that. Somehow, this Orange County crew dusts off an old genre and makes it modern. Aloha Radio is not without their share of accomplishments. From being named one of Music Connection Magazines Top 100 Live Unsigned Bands, to performing at multiple festivals with legendary artists, to receiving a nomination for Best Surf at the 2013 OC Music Awards, this is just the beginning of Aloha Radio’s unstoppable momentum.
