Leo Rising is a four-piece band based out of San Diego, California. The group plays an eclectic, high-energy mix of cover material from classic to modern rock and alternative.
Leo Rising's sound is carved from the vocals of lead singer Amberly Palmer-Bailey, a powerhouse rhythm section composed of bassist Rob G. and drummer Mark Mongelli, and the blistering guitar playing of David Taub.
Leo Rising currently plays out all over San Diego and Orange Counties. Besides playing the club circuit they also perform at private parties, corporate events, festivals, and special events. The band is also available as an acoustic duo.
