A lot of people often ask me what Soucano means, where did the name come from? We'll it's really a long but not so long story. My dear friend Anthony Torres and I came up with the name many years ago. Soucano reminds me of the times when I grew up in the South of Market in San Francisco, a time when hanging out in the stoops of the 1 bedroom apartments we lived in with 5 other siblings. We listened to the great music of the 60's played football on asphalt fields, and generally enjoyed our company. This is what Soucano is. We will remember the great times maybe not with that generation specifically but that ideology. Soucano is a mix of Soul and Chicano, it's where we come from, it's who we are! If you ever have time to come out to see us, my hope is that you feel the love and energy we put into making the best music you've ever heard! Thank you for your ear!
We are aiming high, with that, we are looking to be the most sought after band in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond!! We always have so much fun performing for all of our fans and it shows on stage! We're continuing to push forward as best we can in these trying times to give you the very best shows you can imagine! The future is looking bright!
