Hanson speaks about Sun Domingo

Last year we had the opportunity to play with a great band called Hanson. ( WATCH A VIDEO CLIP FROM THAT SHOW HERE)
Yes, they are great. And to top it off.......super nice guys.
You will not meet a more down to earth bunch of people that are extremely talented. Their dad Walker Hanson is also about the coolest guy you could meet.
We found out earlier this year by word of mouth that Hanson had been playing our song " A song in your name" right before they go on stage everynight! This is very flattering and made us blush :) Just last week Isaac Hanson (the oldest brother) was interviewed
by Starpolish and spoke about Sun Domingo.

"STARPOLISH: Hanson's music is a mixture of soul, rock and a lot of other musical genres. Every show I’ve seen, you guys always mix it up. I know the bands of the '50s and '60s inspired you a great deal, but is there any current music that is inspiring you? What are you enjoying right now musically?"

HANSON: That’s a good question. There are a lot of different bands that I have enjoyed in the recent years and continue to listen to that are not direct influences on us. But I know on some level when you listen to people, they do become an influence in some way. I love the band Muse, I think they are amazing. There are a lot of acts who are unknown, independent artists, people like the band Everybody Else who are opening up for us. They're absolutely great. Dave Barnes is actually really cool, too, and he is opening for us as well on the current tour. There are bands like The Hovercrafts, an Australian band that are really cool. Rilo Kiley I like, and I've enjoyed their most recent record a great deal. There’s an Atlanta-based band, called Sun Domingo, that’s totally indie, and they're in the rotating play list we put on before we go on stage. There’s an artist called Meiko out of LA who’s amazing. For those of you that have not purchased the William Shatner record---
