Little Hurricane – San Diego Music Award Nominee

San Diego Music Awards 2011

Little Hurricane, the two person band made up of drummer Celeste “CC” Spina and guitar/keyboard/
vocalist Anthony “Tone” Catalano, have been kicking up a storm lately. The band has been nominated for three San Diego Music Awards: Song of the Year for their song “Haunted Heart,” Album of the Year for their album Homewrecker, and Best Alternative Act. They’ll be playing at the San Diego Music Awards August 8th at Humphreys by the Bay, are also a part of the 91X X-Fest, and have been added to this year’s Lollapalooza lineup to boot! Got lucky to get a few moments from them during their busy schedule to ask a few questions about their San Diego Music Award Nominations.

How do you feel about being nominated?
We feel incredibly honored. It is nice that Homewrecker is getting some recognition.

What was it like winning Best New Artist last year? How do you feel winning that award helped your band the most?
Winning Best New Artist was great. It gave us a boost of confidence and made us work harder so we
could live up to the title. Being nominated benefited little hurricane the most, more so than winning. Once we were nominated, we really used it as a tool to promote the band by telling people about the award
and asking them to vote.

How long have you been playing in San Diego?
Our first show was at Soda Bar in March of 2010.

Do you play live mostly in San Diego or do you tour the country?
We have been on the road most of the year, but are relocating back to San Diego in the next few months.

Do you have a favorite place to play in San Diego?
We love the Casbah. Its always a good crowd and a party.

You will be performing at the SD Music Awards. If you could have one famous rock star join you on stage, who would it be and what would he or she be playing, singing, or doing?
We’d have Art Garfunkel playing the tambourine and singing backups.

Hey, throw this band a vote here. They deserve it!

And here’s a little taste of the band doing their San Diego Music Award nominated song “Haunted Heart.”
