Solar Bear / MINKA / The Moon Unit

Solar Bear is a 4 piece Groove Rock band from Raleigh, NC with a soulful flare. Our writing is simple, yet powerful, speaking on many different topics such as love, life, anguish, and hope. Undeniable grooves are provided by Alex Jolly on the drums, Jake Rowe on lead guitar and Robbie Dooley bringing the tastefully melodic bass lines, mixed with the soul-soothing sounds of Jared Place's voice and guitar. All together, powerful and dynamic.
