Hailing from the nation's capital, Staycation evokes sounds of new and old. Built on a foundation of dance-inducing grooves, gritty psychedelic rock, soaring solos, and topped off with infectious vocal hooks. Each live show is a unique experience, featuring seamless segues and non-stop energy. As Live Music Daily put it, the end result is “less like a show and increasingly like a great party.”
Formally known as DC funk rock group B Side Shuffle, members of Staycation have been mainstays in the DMV music scene for years, with major festival appearances at the All Good Festival and Camp Barefoot, and flagship venues like the 9:30 Club, Howard Theatre, Baltimore Soundstage, and the 8x10. After reforming as Staycation, the group entered 2016 with a bang and sold out their debut show at DC's Rock and Roll Hotel. The band has been in the studio working on their debut EP coming out Summer 2017.
Staycation is Nik Sus (vocals/guitar), Neel Singh (bass), David Ray (drums), Dan Janis (tenor sax) and Will Sautter (vocals/alto sax/keys)
