Among the several laudable artists that we will be showcasing at our Hoopfest Kick-Off event, June 29th includes local wavy Seattle rockers, La Fonda. Allow me to shed some light on this powerhouse group. Because if you’ve never had the pleasure you are veritably missing out on mesmerizing sounds.
La Fonda is a lyrically-driven, indie dream pop band defined by two sisters, singer-songwriters Veronica and Valerie Topacio. The band explores love, longing, and loss with smart, harmonically-rich vocals. Mix that with reverberating, surfy guitars, driving bass lines, catchy melodies, and 90’s alt-rock nostalgia and you have vibes for days.
Their music reminds me of some nostalgic summer drives down the 101 heading towards California, rolling spliff-after-spliff with my legs hanging out the window. You stop at the beach and chug a beer and maybe pitch a tent for the night along the way. You think about when you fell in and out of love. If all else this music makes you feel, and that’s special.

La Fonda has made a reputation for themselves to bring the party wherever they go, enlivening venues with fan-favorites like “FOMO,” whose music video was premiered by IMPOSE magazine in spring 2017. Based in Seattle, the band built a presence playing in front of packed crowds at venues including Crocodile Café, Neumos, Chop Suey, and the Tractor Tavern.
Recently they celebrated the latest release of their hit single, “In the Summer,” applauded by numerous indie blogs for its “beautifully harmonized vocals, rich instrumentation and enhancing layers of synths.” They’re pumped to be working on their debut album this year. They permeate strong hope that their music continues to inspire people to show up fully. And to love as their most authentic, confident and beautifully vulnerable selves.
