Currently the live band is Bill Baird (guitar, keys, voice), Jon Kolar (drums), Willis McClung (bass), Will Patterson (keys), and Sam Sanford (guitar). http://www.sunsetswebsite.com/ 2. Sunset was formed in mid March of 2007 by Andres-Manuel Pichardo (guitar), Jose Alejandro Mejia (bass guitar), and Alex Loseman (vocals) who immediately acquired the members Manuel Rodriguez (drums), Jorge Strofer (guitar), and Luis Ortiz (keyboards). The band has since recorded a demo for the song Dream Machine, their first written song.
Plans to rerecord songs prewritten and recorded by Jorge Strofer (last.fm/music/Jorge+Strofer) have been made. The band is influenced by alternative and indie artists, the majority those of unique and inspiring characteristics. Some of these include Radiohead, Voxtrot, Sigur Ros, Joy Division, New Order, The Postal Service, and Bloc Party. The band has so far considered its own sound to be indie or post punk.Make Sunset Playlist
