According to Bazooka bio
"Whether raiding multiple eras and musical traditions, or pushing standard love song fare off-kilter with clever narrative twists, A2B still manage to be undemanding and buoyant performers, ready to lively up any venue with their detailed (sometimes devilish) brand of bohemian pop know-how." -- Andrew Russell, Submerge Magazine
“…a truly authentic piece of Americana music. Meaning: Americana in its truest sense of the word: a sonic melting-pot of a multitude of influences. -- The Ark of Music
A little bit jazzy, a little bit bluesy, A2B's Americana/retro pop sound recently gained the band two 2019 Sacramento Music Award SAMMIES nominations as well as a 2018 nomination.
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!
"the members of A2B have an uncommon ability to paint plenty of light into a dark scene, willing the emotional landscape to change through song alone, turning tragedy into light-hearted reflection. It’s really something. " -- The Ark of Music
