RiseUp Live presents: EMO LIVE ft. Summer Street
Summer Street is a three-piece pop-punk band from Honolulu, Hawaii comprised of Scott Magsayo (vocals/guitar), Rylen Nakama (bass), and Jared Tomi (drums). The group formed in 2017 after the band members met at local rock shows. Led by primary songwriter Magsayo, the Summer Street sound combines R&B-influenced vocals and the dynamic arrangements of pop-punk/alternative music.
The group claimed First Place at the 2019 Osoyami Battle of the Bands, and had opportunities to open for national touring acts including Jimmy Eat World, Hawthorne Heights, Emarosa, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hellogoodbye, and Tiny Moving Parts. Summer Street’s first full-length album “Secrets and Regrets” was released in 2019 and they have remained active throughout the pandemic with songwriting and live performances. Their second album is due for release in late 2023.
Blood Money was formed in July of 2022 and we released our first EP in February of 2023. We are a high energy, aggressive and groovy band that consists of members from past and present local bands such as Darlington, All Heart, Ignite the Red, SadKidz and Oceans Deep. The members, Locke, Ace, Kalae and Rian are all seasoned musicians and believe Blood Money can bring the energy and hype wherever they play
