GIG – The Summer Set at The Wedgewood Rooms – Tuesday 22nd April 2014

summer setThe Summer Set are an American pop rock band from Scottsdale, Arizona. The band currently consists of vocalist Brian Dales, guitarist, backing vocalist and pianist John Gomez, bassist Stephen Gomez, guitarist Josh Montgomery and drummer Jess Bowen.

After a few years of playing music together, Jess Bowen and brothers John and Stephen Gomez, set out in the fall of 2007 to form The Summer Set with newfound vocalist Brian Dales. Jess, John, and Stephen played in a previous band called Last Call For Camden with Kennedy Brock (The Maine) and guitarist Weston Michl. LCFC had released one CD entitled “Keep Your Feet On the Ground” before breaking up. The Summer Set self-released their first EP, “Love The Love You Have,” in November 2007.

The band signed a record deal with The Militia Group in April 2008. The band’s debut album and first full-length record, Love Like This, was released October 13, 2009.

Everything’s Fine is The Summer Set’s second full length album, released on July 19, 2011 through Razor & Tie.

Everything’s Fine presents a more nuanced story of The Summer Set. Even the sad face on the album’s cover is a hint that there are several new sides to the group. “The title is a bit sarcastic,” admits Gomez. “Our first record was just one emotion. Everything’s Fine is yin and yang. We’ve had some ups and downs recently, some breakups, some general trials and tribulations. This is a record that says we’re young, but growing up and experiencing new things. So in a way, it’s optimistic, too.”

The Summer Set released their third studio album, Legendary, on April 16, 2013 through new record label Fearless Records. The lead single, Boomerang was released in March, and the accompanying music video was released in June. The band played the entire Warped Tour. They are now set to play the iHeartRadio Music Festival this September in Las Vegas. They won a spot after being named the winner of Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star Contest.
