Description

The Limousines are an Electropop band based in the Bay Area, California. The band consists of songwriter and vocalist Eric Victorino, and multi-instrumentalist and producer Giovanni Giusti. The band has had comparisons drawn with MGMT. The band played at Live 105's BFD concert, Treasure Island Music Festival 2009, opening for Duran Duran's show at Mountain Winery. In 2009, the band received local and some national radio airplay and chart success on Sirius/XM's Alt Nation with the song "Very Busy People." In late 2009, they independently released their first physical record, The Scrapbook EP, on dual 7" white vinyl. Their latest album, Hush, was released on June 6th!
"You begin to wonder, are we the townspeople or are we the monster?" says Nick Brown, the band's front man and producer. The pastor's son named the group after his grandmother, Mona Brown, who was a worship leader in the same denomination as Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. MONA is a four-piece band that carries a rock and roll attitude based in spiritual roots whether they are playing to 9 people in a dive bar or 90,000 at a festival. Brown, along with fellow Dayton, OH native Vince Gard and Kentucky boys Zach Lindsey and Jordan Young come swinging once again with Torches & Pitchforks, a sophomore album that demands attention.
