“There are certain things one just isn’t bold enough to ever expect… [one] such moment was seeing ska legends/pioneers English Beat… I’ve sent countless evenings at ska shows while growing up, but this was the perfect first/biggest ska show of 2010.” – BEYOND RACE MAGAZINE

The English Beat are coming back to Big Bear!

One of the most influential bands of the 20th century, The English Beat, is celebrating their 40th anniversary as a band this year. Ever since their formation in 1978, they have been delivering high caliber performances and countless hits. The band was formed in Birmingham, and fuses a wide range of genres that make it the unique, yet classic sound. Out of all of the English bands throughout the British Invasion, The English Beat has certainly been one of the most outstanding.

Surf Rock Legend Comes to Big Bear!

Ohio born music legend, Al Jardine, is one of the most influential musicians of our time. Being one of the founding members of the archetypal band, The Beach Boys, he has seen and spear-headed a great deal of development in the music industry. The Beach Boys are one of the bands out of the 60’s that will always be remembered, right next to the legendary Beatles and Rolling Stones. Their songs bring some of the greatest nostalgia of California living, and even transcend the music of today. Al Jardine is still touring to this day, and will be at The Cave in Big Bear on June 15th!

An Interview with Hal Ketchum

By |March 27th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Classic Rock, Country, Event, Interviews, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Uncategorized|Tags: |Comments Off on An Interview with Hal Ketchum

A word with the legend

Hal Katchum is a very interesting man, and I had the honor of conducting an interview with him today. Being an active and prolific songwriter for most of his life, my first question was meant to satisfy my curiosity of where his inspiration comes from. He said that he dreams a lot of his songs, and always finds a way to capture it as it comes. “It just comes to me,” he says in a calm and genuine tone of voice. All of Hal’s music comes from a very deep place, where he is blessed with the opportunity to manifest it on the physical plane.

A True Artist

Hal has been a writing music professionally for many years, and still enjoys writing and playing music. After working in the trenches of the music industry for […]

An Interview with Cash’d Out: Johnny Cash tribute

A take for take act of the legendary Johnny Cash

I had the honor of conducting an interview with Douglas Benson, singer of Cash’d Out. Doug is a genuine contributor to the energy Johnny Cash brought to the table. His musical style began to develop as he had lost his job and picked up a guitar. People loved the music he played,  and he had fun playing it. Just like any truly talented individual, Doug had eventually found himself playing music with organic success. “I actually had a pretty good job by the time we started the band. But it was rolling so good, and we were working so much that I figured that I would rather be playing in a band than doing a job. I just jumped off the ledge and quit my job.”

Inspiration

This is a very inspiring story for any musician or artist […]

Powerman 5000 Hits the Stage March 16th

POWERMAN 5000 began soon after founder and frontman Spider One dropped out of the prestigious School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston Massachusetts. “I loved painting” Spider recalls, “but I figured I could do that when I was 80. I was spending all my time in the clubs of Boston, like the Rat and the Channel. I was watching all of these great local bands and I wanted to be apart of that scene! So I dropped out of school without a clue but was determined to start a band.”

After years of false starts and various incarnations, Powerman 5000 eventually released it’s first EP, TRUE FORCE in 1994 which quickly became a Boston rock favorite, catapulting the band to the top of the local scene. “We were very different than everyone else. At the time Grunge was exploding and […]

Dokken is Coming!

Dokken, the heavy metal classic, has been playing off and on for the last 30 to 40 years. The band is making runs through the US on their tour, and they are stopping in Big Bear this Saturday! With two original members in the band, Dokken is ready to bring the fire of their legendary performance. The current lineup is Don Dokken, Jon Levin, “Wild” Mick Brown, and Chris McCarvill. Singer Don Dokken is the founder of the band, having started it with an opportunity to sign to a German record label.

The Best Kind of Musicians

It is quite rare to find a genuine musician that goes above and beyond purely for the love of their music, and dedication to their craft. I had the pleasure of speaking with one of those people today. Steve Zukowsky is the guitarist of Led Zeppelin tribute band – Zeppelin USA. He is a very talented and hard working guitarist, and each member of the band is just as excellent.

The entire band is filled with accomplished professional musicians that have clicked in a way that brings out the best in the band and each other. Steve was originally in another Zeppelin tribute called Led Zepagain, which he left to eventually find amazing chemistry with the members in Zeppelin USA.

A Young Passionate Musician

Steve has been learning guitar since he was 12 years old, studying all […]
