A Message From Our Band:

Most of us are descendants of immigrants.  For some of us that journey involves generations.  For others it is a more recent if not a personal experience. Regardless of the distance in time, our family traditions reflect some influence from our cultures of origin.

While we are encouraged to assimilate into American culture, our homes retain the traditions and customs of our ethnic heritage.  Not through rigid enforced activities but through the ever-present music echoing through the rooms. There were also many boisterous and happy melodies encouraging a lust for life and laughter.  

Simple, yet lyrically powerful and poignant, these songs have provided a glimpse into the heart of the immigrant allowing us to experience the longing for a home left behind.  These experiences instilled within each of us, the love and appreciation for the music that remains with us today.

Our band "Immigrant Sons" is a tribute to those in our families, past and present, distant and near who immigrated to the United States and to thank them for their sacrifices.
