Although The Restless Sons consider themselves a new band, Darren O'Brien (vocals/guitar), Sean O'Brien (lead guitar), Neil Thollander (bass) of Calistoga, CA previously played together for 10+ years as the local punk band Something Cool. Along with Something Cool, multiple members of The Restless Sons have been fully involved and active in other bands such as, The Cruz Missiles, God's Oddities, and have done US tours with Santa Cruz's Dun Bin Had.
In addition to participating in multiple of the previously mentioned bands, Darren O'Brien has also been playing solo acoustic shows in the Sonoma/Napa county areas for the last 6 years. It was at these solo acoustic folk shows that the songs, sound, and idea of the Restless Sons slowly developed. Now with a solid rock sound, infused with the diversity of prior projects, the Restless Sons are a young, eager-to-play band.
