The Virtuals

The Virtuals formed at the 50th Anniversary Monterey Pop Festival in June 2018 when friends Joe Montoya and Alec Kent met Jake Padorr and Stephen Sanfilippo over the group's love of bands like The Beatles and The Grateful Dead.

The pop-rock foursome plays around the Monterey Peninsula like at East Village Coffee Lounge with dance-y, garage rock-inspired tunes. The Virtuals write and perform original music, including their single "All I Want to Do is Dance."
