Long time friends Koley O'Brien and Joe Spargur founded A B & The Sea January 1st, 2008--not only marking the start of a new year, but a new journey. They packed up their van, waved goodbye to Wisconsin and started making their way to California. After going through a line-up change, A B & The Sea was made complete again with the addition of drummer Troy Lawton, bass player Ben Laatsch and David Hunt on keys. While they're new to San Francisco, the boys have shared the stage with such notable acts as: Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Tokyo Police Club, Freelance Whales, The Fruit Bats, The Submarines, The Morning Benders, Fitz and The Tantrums and The Miniature Tigers. Often referred to as a modern day Beach Boys meets The Beatles, A B & The Sea's beachy, carefree vibes have landed them gigs at many prominent SF venues such as The Independent, Slims, Bimbos & Bottom of the Hill. With a contagious hunger for success, A B & The Sea captured the attention of Chris Chu (The Morning Benders) and Eric Frederic (Wallpaper) & produced new songs at legendary Different Fur Studio in San Francisco.
