Fusing hard rock with face-melting funk and sexy reggae grooves, Yeah Son! has been bringing a unique, lush sound and energetic live shows to New Jersey, Philadelphia and beyond since 2010. The band is fronted by founding members and siblings Julio Ossa (lead vocals/keys) and Melissa Ossa (lead vocals), who are joined by Max Barruzza (bass/backing vocals), Matt Janicki (guitar) and Ty Perle (drums).
Together, Yeah Son! brings an intense hybrid of rock rooted in 90’s alternative and vintage 70’s funk with touches of classic rock and reggae, a sound that has been described as reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Police, Rage Against The Machine and early Incubus, among others. Having performed in many multi-genre showcases including Frozen Harbor Music Festival in Baltimore (opening for acts such as Redman in 2016 and Dru Hill in 2017) Yeah Son! shines in their sonic diversity as they draw from their many different musical and artistic influences.
In June 2017, Yeah Son! released their latest EP Talk In Technicolor which they are currently promoting through a series of original shows, acoustic gigs and cover shows throughout the summer and fall. The new album is now available to stream or download on various sites (Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, Amazon Music and many more) and physical copies are available at all live shows.
See the band LIVE at Dave & Buster’s Dockside Bar on Friday August 25th with Knightlife, Stone, and more! Get info on all of their area appearances HERE
