Inception: San Diego, 2004
Based in Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach, Sandollar started off with a couple of high school buddies jamming in Wood Shop. After their debut Plane Rides and Hillsides, a self-titled album was released in 2011, with a cover photo showing the band leaning on their car known as the Beast, a beat-up 1986 Suburban. That was followed in 2013 by Rollercoaster Ride.
Also in 2013, Sandollar was singled out as San Diego’s best unsigned band and thus taped for an appearance on the web TV series Indie Across America. “They sent scouts to every major city looking for talent,” says Baron Lunbeck, who plays keyboards and sings. “They chose us,” he says, “and we’re holding it down for San Diego.”
