Sozo was started in the beginning of September of 2010 and has evolved into a full band over the past few years. We have played many different gigs and are always looking for more! On October 21st, 2011 we took 1st place in the "14 & Under" division in the SB Youth Battle of the Bands 2011!!! Ever since we have become one of Santa Barbara's most celebrated and popular bands. On June 23rd, 2012, we hosted a Benefit Concert at SOhO for the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. In October 2012 singer Alba Vargas left the band as well as guitarist Joe Osuna. We had disbanded but in March 2013 we got back together with a new sound and new attitude. Some of our recognizable gigs include Fiesta 2011 and 2012, Goleta Lemon Festival 2011 and 2012, SB Youth Battle of the Bands 2011, MLK Day Celebration 2012, Concerts in the Park, and Solstice 2011.
