Tarzana, CA – The San Fernando Valley was host to Philadelphia-based rock band Soraia on March 7th when the group played a raucous set at Tarzana’s Maui Sugar Mill Saloon.

The crowd was moving and dancing throughout their performance. After a few other fan favorites from previous albums, Soraia featured “Superman is Gone”, “Wild Woman” and “Dangerous,” all from the upcoming album Dig Your Roots.
The group ended with “Wandering Start” from fan favorite album Dead Reckoning.
