Sonic Nation was formed in the summer of 2012. The band prides themselves on song list selections that are crowd friendly and energetic, yet still interesting and unique in comparison to typical "bar band" set lists. The band is anchored by bassist Ron Spears, formerly of "The Breakfast" and seasoned drummer Kenny Owens, who has performed with such acts as Darian Cunning, Adam Gardner (Guster),and String Fingers Band. Singer and guitarist Travis Winkley has been a popular solo acoustic act in CT the past 10 years and has performed over a thousand shows. Lead guitarist Steve Notarangelo is new on the scene but demonstrates great maturity on the electric guitar. Many of Sonic Nation's shows are also accompanied by a two piece horn section; Ben Goldernovick on saxophone and Scott Haber on trumpet. This sound can be described as New Orleans brass funk intertwined with pyshcedelic rock n roll.
