Deluna fans, along with music lovers who haven't yet heard the band, are in for a treat Sunday when the group opens for Canadian band Stars at the Uptown Theatre.
The six members of Deluna rehearse regularly, often twice a week, and have been recording in a Redwood City studio.
But Deluna — one of the hit bands two years running at Napa Porchfest —plays in public less often than once a month, and seldom gets the chance to perform on a stage like the Uptown's, in front of a house that can seat more than 600.
To make sure they sound their best, Deluna's members accepted an invitation from Uptown front-of-house manager John Breglia for an early sound check and dress rehearsal Wednesday night (see video and photos).
Tickets to Sunday's 8 p.m. concert are $31, but Deluna fans can get a two-for-one ticket deal by using the password "Cole" at the box office.
You can hear new music from the band Friday afternoon when they stop by for a visit with Mindi on , at 4 p.m.
