The best kept secret in music

Press


"Encore, Wilmington, NC"

The band projects rock 'n' roll at it's finest. It's stripped down to the bone of any hard-core, in-need-of-anger-management pretense or misdirected talent, and all that's left is a heart that beats solely for the music - music you can tell is handled as a craft. The lyrics are thoughtful and pensive. The delivery is clean and fluid, nearly flawless. And although their shows may be at times a little humorous, the music is certainly no joke. Something fresh and altogether attractive about their sound is the regular inclusion of their three-part harmonies on several of their songs...They've certainly caught the attention of some major players in the music biz."

"Josh Barson, Charleston Free Time"

"I have seen the future of pop music and it is Sun Domingo. Their Cumberland's show was a breath of fresh air to a long stale King Street. This is one of those bands you want to see make it. Sometimes going out on a Wednesday night is worth it!"

"Connect Savannah, Savannah, GA"

"Atlanta band with a knack for power-pop hooks and impressive vocal harmonies. At times they suggest a mainstream, Southern version of Britain's XTC."

"Mountain XPress, Asheville, NC"


"The polished melodicism of their self-titled debut EP, with its soaring vocals, straight-ahead beats and heavy flourishes of acoustic guitar, seemingly places the band squarely within the confines of typical pop rock. However, their music also reflects an underlying creative focus that sets it apart. Together as a four-piece only since last October, the band has posted online a more recent recording – a four-song demo – that captures Sun Domingo's considerable growth since the debut. Already, this sounds like a band on the move toward a vision, and it's exciting to catch them now, while it's still clear that they're in the hunt for it. The newer material only reinforces the natural affinity for hooks and sophisticated arrangements that the EP suggests, only this time the band sounds more aware of tone and texture. "

"Cape Gazette, Deleware"

"The foursome has a harmonic sound inspired by original popsters The Beatles, while keeping a real edge with introspective, original lyrics...Humorous and razor-sharp on stage and on the CD, Sun Domingo has distinguished itself in Atlanta, a hotbed of fresh, young talent. Its live shows are an inventive mix of original and cover material."

"Metro Spirit, Augusta, GA"

"The group boasts a very lively, upbeat set that is not exempt from whimsical changes or covers"

"MBM Entertainment"

"No banal lyrical, pop drivel here. These guys can sing, groove, jam, and just plain rock it; and it’s all delivered with tight, clean precision."
Matthew B. Mayes, founder of Jupiter Coyote and MBM Entertainment - Matthew B. Mayes

Bio

Sun Domingo is just about the hardest working band in the biz, playing over 200 shows and selling nearly 2,000 copies of their self titled EP in their first year as a band. They are known for their rich 3 part harmonies, driving bass, melodic guitar arrangements and introspective lyrics.

Neil Finn (Crowded House) and XTC figure into the equation, but popsters like Big Star and The Beatles set the direction. With a self-titled debut EP under their belt, the band is out doing what it does best: playing live. A little humor, great singing, razor sharp playing, and the ability to pull out covers from Zeppelin, Yes and The Police on a second's notice sets these guys' shows apart from the rest of the pop pack. Their music is a reminder of bands that could once play their instruments and also write a great song without overplaying, and it's all delivered with tight, clean precision. This band is on the road over 200 dates a year!

Sun Domingo is: Jason Pomar- lead vocals /bass guitar, Forrest Burtnette- guitar and vocals, and Edgel Groves Jr.- drums and backing vocals and Brian Chenault- lead guitar/vocals. Jason has a powerhouse voice with incredible range and not since Sting have we seen a bass player handle so much of the lead vocal duties and lay it down at the same time. Forrest & Brian hail from Charlottesville, VA. and have played in the bands Wisher, and Bicycle (signed to Capricorn Records). Brian is no doubt a world class guitarist and his stratospheric solos are something to behold. Forrest is the utility man, handling lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitar. He can simply do everything, even switching off to drums occasionally. Edgel is the core on the drums, rock solid and powerful, he is the foundation of the band. A talented guitarist and singer as well, it is phenomenal to watch Edgel and Forrest switch off instruments in the shows. Just another thing that sets these guys apart...

Calling Charlottesville, VA their home, they are currently on winter tour and creating a buzz. Here is what some of the press is saying:

"This noteworthy Atlanta pop-rock band has it all: young, handsome cats, inspired 3-part vocal harmonies, hypnotic guitar figures, and a strong sense of brainy arrangements."
Connect Savannah, Savannah, GA

"Sun Domingo was a real treat. The focal point of the group was the lead singer/bassist with a voice that could give Sting a run for his money. He solidified that point by doing a dead-on cover of The Police's 'Roxanne.' The Outback crowd went nuts. I even got a little chill."
