The OC’s breakout punk band consists of Ness on lead guitar (vocals), Jonny “Two Bags” Wickersham (rhythm guitar & backing vocals), Brent Harding (bass & backing vocals), David Hidalgo Jr. (drums), and David Kalish (keys).

In their 4th decade, Social D has released 7 studio albums — their last, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, in 2011 — a live album and 2 DVD’s.

Currently based in Newport Beach with his wife and two children, Ness is a devout vegan and founded Black Kat Customs, an American clothing line and custom parts shop based in Santa Ana, California.
