We are The Roaring Hearts. We are a local San Francisco band. It was a long and sometimes painful process getting to where we are now. There were tears, name changes, epic fails, and miscommunication, but it all came together . . . eventually. It really started when Ava thought about starting a band. She asked Anya if she wanted to sing in this non-named band (Ava and Anya have been close friends since pre-school). She said yes, but we still didn't have a drummer. "It's all good. Julius drums. I'll just convince him," Ava said. Our first big performance was at our 3rd-grade talent show. We were a hit and got asked to play at the school carnival in 4th grade. Still a hit. Then 5th grade and 6th grade, and now we'd like to focus on playing more gigs. We play birthday parties or whatever event people want.
