Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO), will bring their California style and soulful grooves to UU Hour today from 11 a.m. to noon.

The four-member band includes Steve Adams on bass and vocals, David Brogan on drums and vocals, Zach Gill on keyboard and vocals and Dan Lebowitz on guitars, percussion and vocals.

The band has toured with college friend Jack Johnson and released their first album “Fly Between Falls” in April which includes tracks “Girl, I Wanna Lay You Down,” “Barbeque” and “Walls of Jericho.”

“For us, ALO is more than just a band and we’re more than just a group of great friends making music together . ALO is our lifestyle,” the band said on their Web site.

“All four of us share a real interest in continually learning about music – new styles, new ways of playing, new ways of engaging an audience – and that’s something that we never want to stop,” Lebowitz said on the Web site.

ALO performed at San Francisco’s Independent club where they broke the venue’s ticket sales record.

“They can improvise and jam as good as anyone I’ve ever seen. But they got these songs that really stick in your head as well,” Jack Johnson said, found on the band’s Wed site.
