The Sacramento band Petaluma started as an experimental pop duo with Rob Habel and Pat Sweeney blending psychedelic rock, electronica, and indie music. Since their self-titled album was released in January 2017, they've added four musicians to fill out their sound for live performances. Habel and Sweeney along with drummer Melissa Garcia share secrets from their recording process and growing as a band. 

Petaluma is performing at The Purple Place Bar & Grill in El Dorado Hills as part of First Fest Fridays.
