The Absentee Ballads band was formed in 2008 when guitarist Tom Towle joined his longtime friend and fellow guitarist Joe Lombardo, bassist Aaron Peterson, and drummer Rick Heyhoe in playing classic rock and blues at local venues in and around Santa Barbara. The group began to gain recognition with their tight harmonies and cohesive musical stylings.
