"Local Unsigned Band "Sully" To Play At KAABOO Del Mar"

"The nine-piece group includes some of San Diego’s best musicians and a special guest star on drums — Steve Ferrone — who should be familiar to anyone who saw Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers perform at the 2017 edition of KAABOO, barely a month before Petty’s sudden death. Ferrone was the Heartbreakers’ longtime drummer." - George Varga 9/14/2018 - San Diego Union
