Still working on that hot first release.



Feel good music. Music that flows freely, and is unencumbered by the boundaries of a single genre. Intense passion and emotion comes out in the music of Stomping Grounds, yet, it has a sense of ease. Listeners have described this Santa Cruz based band as “soulful” and “bluesy”.

Recently selling out shows on a local level, Stomping Grounds is starting to have some regional success. The band began in May of 2012 and consists of Matthew Howard, Judson DiSalvo, Alex Abreu, and brothers, Antonio and Lorenzo Anzaldua. Influences of the band include classic rock, jazz-fusion, reggae, and indie music.

“Stomping Grounds is headed by brothers Antonio Anzaldua on guitar/vocals and Lorenzo Anzaldua on guitar. The new local band calls on classic rock and Motown blues for inspiration, backed by Matt Howard and Judd DiSalvo in the funk-heavy rhythm section.”

-Santa Cruz Sentinel

“The Santa Cruz-born band Stomping Grounds is still in its infancy (they formed in May) but they call on classic rock and Motown blues for inspiration… Antonio has a youthful, yet raspy voice that nails down the genre on songs that pay homage to the music of Gary Clark Jr., Soulive, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, and Jimi Hendrix.”
