The Never Ending ready to rock Solano Town Center

FAIRFIELD — The Never Ending is looking for a new name.

The group was formed about 18 months ago, before Disney star Debby Ryan and her band, The Never Ending, released their album, “One.” The Suisun City-based The Never Ending is taking a proactive step. Rather than waiting on a cease and desist order from Disney, they will change their moniker.

The band will play at 6 p.m. Friday in the Solano Town Center dining court. Members are siblings Alyssa Gonzalez and Josh Gonzalez, and Dustin Dinsmore and William Maher II.

“I’m excited to see what we choose,” Alyssa Gonzalez said of the new name.

The band labels their sound alternative, but it doesn’t stop there. Some country tunes are often thrown in with tunes penned by Alyssa Gonzalez. They are even working on some reggae tunes, she said.

She learned to play guitar when she was 16 and went on to lead the youth worship at First Christian Church in Suisun City, she said.

Some of the youth she works with today have taken over leading the worship.

“The whole experience is just awesome,” she said.

Being part of the worship band, called Ethos, helped her organize and find her role in the band, she said. It also taught her teamwork, Gonzalez said.

At the mall show, the band will play a lot of original tunes, with themes centering on relationships and one’s legacy.

“I don’t write, ‘Hey girl, shake your butt’ songs,” Alyssa Gonzalez said.

She hopes the songs inspire people to look on the positive side. Her favorite song, however, was written after the end of a two-year relationship.

“I was angry,” she said. “But the guy so deserved it.”

Alyssa Gonzalez also performs solo. She lists her influences as Dave Grohl, Paramore and Jimmy Eat World. She recently graduated from cosmetology school.
