About The Boys

The Happys are a bay area band composed of four twenty-something-year olds-playing dysfunctional Surf tinged Grunge.


The Happys Acquired a reputation with their rowdy live performances. Since their 2016 debut album Trippin, The Happys have embodied a vulnerability, setting their honest painful feelings of addiction to a wildly joyful surf-grunge sound.

 Formed in the Bay Area, songwriter Nick Petty grew up writing music since an early age. Starting his career after overcoming addiction, depression and incarceration, powerful even strange songs started to form. The outfit is completed by Guitarist, Ale (Alex) Sanchez, Bassist, Brett Brazil and Drummer Elijah Smetzer. The Happys have shared the stage with artists such as Mad Caddies, Sublime with RomeAgent Orange,  Del the Funky Homosapien, Band of GringosLAW, and Sensi Trails


The boys are currently going on a 23 date Fall East Coast tour with Sensi Trails and Dale and the Zdubz November 25th to December 23rd 2022.
