Secure the Sun: Napa’s new Musicians

Don’t feel old, but Generation Z is starting to turn out its first big bands. Secure the Sun is a four-man, Napa Valley band with frontman Ari Eisenberg, drummer Jonathan Soria-Gil, bass player Anthony Cappeto and guitarist Liam Milligan. Inspired by the New York funk movement, Secure the Sun (STS) brings high-energy, Bowie-esque lyrics with thumping rhythm guitars and jazzy drum beats that gets everyone dancing. “Our first gig was in a little punk bar in Oakland,” says Eisenberg. “We played our set and the manager shook our hands afterward, saying, ‘This will be the last time you ever play in my club. Next year, you’ll be at festivals and touring!’ I’m glad he was right.”

Samples are tested for pesticides after they’ve been thoroughly washed (and peeled, if appropriate). Here are the results of this year’s report.
