Hometown: Philadelphia, PA (USA)


Balboa is a rock/metal type band hailing from Philadelphia. The members met on September 11 2001 at a cancelled house show. Originally part of the Set Sail Collective a DIY positive music space in West Philly, Balboa writes songs with many political leanings. They have toured the US as well as Japan multiple times. Pin–pointing a genre or reason for this band seems nothing greater than just four long time friends using Balboa as a vessel to play music and share ideas. Songs in English, French, and Spanish.
