Night Herons
Night Herons
Formed in 2013, Night Herons is a rock band out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Comprised of Dana Berry on vocals, drums and guitar, Mike Assenzio on guitar and Larry Huene on guitar and drums, the band is a mish-mash of influences that have congealed into a solid chunk of indie/alt-whatever rock and roll.

Berry has been a drummer in numerous bands including LA's Forrest Lawn and San Francisco's Pancho-San before starting his own recording project Bitterwind. Initially putting together a Bitterwind band, Berry found Assenzio who in turn recruited friend and old bandmate Huene. Finding that the songwriting mojo was there amongst the three of them. they decided to start a new band and Night Herons was born.

The band quickly found themselves with enough quality songs to record so opted to get in the studio before playing live. Recruiting Patrick Abernethy (Pancho-San, Rogue Wave, Beulah) to help produce and Pat Spurgeon (Rogue Wave, Churches, Pancho-San) to engineer at their studio in Emeryville, the recording of SHIPYARD RIOT began in March 2014. Released soon after, the band played shows around the Bay Area with Mason Holding on bass.

Eager to record new songs, the band started recording their follow-up in March 2016, on their own equipment in their Oakland rehearsal studio. The band enlisted the aid of Mason, Dave Leonard and Brad Assenzio on bass. Dana's former bandmate, Shea Breaux Wells, added vocals to the song Let Me In. The band decided to have an outsider mix the album and were fortunate to get Mark Gordon (Titan-Ups, Delmarva) on board. Mark got the sound the band was looking for. The album, RELEVANT NOISE, was released in June 2017. Although Larry has moved to Chicago, he is flying back for the CD listening party and show on August 19th, 2017 at the Ivy Room in Albany, CA.
