Our Story

Sasha's Money is a hot, new covers band from Santa Cruz, CA. The band formed in 2015 with Michelle (Sasha) Kraft (lead vocals, percussion), Mike Kelly (bass, lead vocals), Bill McBride (guitar), and Randy Solomon (drums) and started playing an eclectic mix of great dance songs ranging across several decades (from The Police and Sublime to Elle King and No Doubt.) The band was joined by legendary local guitarist, Johnny McCullough, in 2016 and immediately solidified the band with his multi-band experience from the early 80’s (The Batteries) through the turn of the century (The Spell, Roomshakers.) In October 2016, Sasha’s Money had the honor of opening for James Durbin at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz. Inspired by the music of Amy Winehouse, The Pretenders, and Blondie, Sasha’s Money will get everyone out to the dance floor and leave wanting more.
