Tour Diaries: Sun Room

Southern Californian band, Sun Room, set Columbus, Ohio ablaze on their first headline tour.

Sun Room recently embarked on their first headlining tour and we stopped by their show at A&R Music Bar in Columbus, Ohio. While the show wasn't "Sold Out," it was sure as hell close; the line for the show wrapped around the building, fans bracing the cold in their summer attire in the hopes that Sun Room, well, brings the sun. There are certain people in this world who radiate sunshine, Sun Room is no different. The band's discography is infused with feelings of endless summer days, and cinematic nights; those same feelings translate incredibly well live, making the dreary Midwest (it literally snowed after the show) feel like a beach bums' paradise.

Sun Room recently embarked on their first headlining tour and we stopped by their show at A&R Music Bar in Columbus, Ohio. While the show wasn't "Sold Out," it was sure as hell close; the line for the show wrapped around the building, fans bracing the cold in their summer attire in the hopes that Sun Room, well, brings the sun. There are certain people in this world who radiate sunshine, Sun Room is no different. The band's discography is infused with feelings of endless summer days, and cinematic nights; those same feelings translate incredibly well live, making the dreary Midwest (it literally snowed after the show) feel like a beach bums' paradise.


The four-piece band, comprised of Luke Asgian (lead vocals + guitar), Gibby Anderson (drums), Ashton Minnich (guitar), and Max Pinamonti (bass) is relatively new on the scene, as the band came together as a quarantine project by Asgian. Self-described as "some friends from Southern California who like to surf & make music out of their very hot garage," Sun Room's sound is most certainly influenced by the group's upbringing in surf towns along the southern-west coast; but the band is more than just surf and sand, hints of those feel good 60s classics and punk undertones elevate the band's sound offering up a dynamic and groovy listening environment.


The rock band didn't start releasing music until 2020, but has been quickly gaining steam as they have joined tours opening for the likes of Louis Tomlinson and Irish band Inhaler. Sun Room's most recent addition to their discography, "I Want You," came earlier this year in May and has quickly become a favorite among listeners. Closing out their first heading tour later this November, fans eagerly await the band's first album as the existing slew of singles and EPs can only suffice for so long.
