We are a band based out of Southern California, nestled in the Inland Empire. We began in 2015, and a few twists and turns later we find ourselves writing, producing and performing our brand of music for the young and young at heart alike. We love the stage and there is nothing better than a great set; seeing the enjoyment we bring to those in the audience and the excitement it creates fuels us.
Our style has been described as high energy alternative rock with a dash of punk.
We perform throughout Southern California on small and large stages at clubs, bars, community events, festivals and most recently at Warped Tour 2018.
We are a four piece band:
Reece Borski - Bass
Reece began playing the guitar at age 10. But it wasn’t until he picked up the bass guitar 4 years later, that magic started happening. Today, Reece pours his heart and soul into playing bass guitar. His bass comes to life with a funkadelic style that is strongly influenced by Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nick Villarreal of Sons of Texas. He packs a potent blend of style and skill with his rich tones, giving Thursdays in Suburbia its authentic style.
Serena Tario - Lead Vocals
Serena’s passion for music and singing began when she was only 3 years old. Her song writing began early on, incorporating her life experience to bring a genuine feel to her lyrics. Serena’s alluring vocal style is influenced by Lana Del Rey, Mazzy Star and Billie Eilish. Serena is high energy and the centerpiece of the group. She loves to connect with her audience and brings musical talent, eloquence, and a flair for the dramatic to the stage.
Liam Eastwood - Guitar
Liam’s love for music started with the guitar which he picked up at age 7. In just a few years, the electric guitar became an artistic extension of himself which he wields with finesse. These days, Liam not only plays like a boss, but he also writes music and experiments with different styles of expression. Together with his band, Liam translates lyrics into musical compositions that define Thursdays in Suburbia’s unique brand of self expression. Liam is endorsed by EARTHQUAKER DEVICES and VOODOO LAB.
Jonathan (Johnny) Shankel - Drums
Johnny’s passion for drumming began in the kitchen, beating pots and pans with wooden spoons as a toddler. But it wasn’t until middle school that he decided to take up drums. Johnny is the newest member of the band and brings a sophisticated musical toolkit that includes playing electric and bass guitars. But his true passion is powered by his first love, drums. Heavily influenced by Travis Barker, Johnny likes to play hard and enjoys pushing the boundaries of rock music.
We have played on small and large stages alike:
House of Blues
Whiskey A Go Go
Festivals - Vans Warped Tour
As most musicians, our interest and experience continues to evolve and we endeavor to represent that in our music and share our passion with our audience.
