Desperado: A Blast from the past

By |May 26th, 2017|Categories: Classic Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Desperado: A Blast from the past

It is always a treat to enjoy world-class musicians in a high caliber concert venue, especially when they can encompass the vibe of your favorite band in such a powerful way. Desperado is more than an average tribute band. They bring the particular energy of the legendary band we all know and love. These talented and accomplished musicians can deliver a performance one holds fondly in their memory.

“A Desperado performance isn’t just about an audience enjoying their favorite Eagles hits… It’s about that & much more. The professional visual impact, astounding accuracy & obvious soulful appreciation & personal enjoyment which is shown by the performing musicians takes the great music of the Eagles far beyond the typical ‘tribute’ band experience. A Desperado audience has a memorable, world class, ‘Major Artist Concert’ type of musical experience that they will talk about to their friends & peers, for years to come.”

Riki Hendrix – The Cave Big Bear

By |May 25th, 2017|Categories: Rock|Tags: |Comments Off on Riki Hendrix – The Cave Big Bear

Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with musician Riki Hendrix. Although not a blood relative of Jimi (cousins by marriage), he embodies a similar flare and passion for performing, and has been given the blessing of the family to carry on the legendary name.

Riki started playing in a Jimi Hendrix tribute band in the 60’s with Randy Hansen, who later continued on alone, while Riki pursued a solo career. Hendix’s musical journey also included his first recording which was with a group called “The Booty People”. He hated the band name but loved the experience and the members.

Riki played guitar in a rock opera in Singapore which received a standing ovation, all whilst not being able to read music at the time and improvising. He was invited to Vancouver to be on a BBC television show which gave him some recognition as a Jimi Hendrix tribute artist, even […]

LA Guns

By |May 18th, 2017|Categories: Rock|Tags: |Comments Off on LA Guns

The classic rock icon, LA Guns, has an interesting history. Like many legendary bands, it was formed and developed from the ground up on the famous Sunset Strip. Conceived in 1980, the band was originally named “Pyrrhus” by Tracii Guns, who later renamed it “L.A. Guns”. A few years later, Guns and his ex-singer Axl Rose formed a side project called Guns and Roses. However, LA Guns never stopped moving.

The band recorded their debut album, titled “LA Guns” under Polygram records in 1987. The self-titled album was a hit, selling 750,000 copies worldwide. This accomplishment earned them their first gold album award, as well as a gold video award from the compilation videos made from the album. The explosive success also gave them the opportunity to tour with bands like AC/DC and Def Leppard, Most bands would be content with such achievements, although it was only the beginning of […]

Los Lonely Boys

By |May 16th, 2017|Categories: Alternative, Country, Rock|Tags: |Comments Off on Los Lonely Boys

Becoming successful requires a particular combination of diligence and faith. There are risks to take and challenges to overcome in every step of the journey toward the conscious manifestation of our dreams. For Los Lonely Boys, a unique Texan Latino rock band consisting of three brothers, their journey had led them toward the creation of inspirational music and subsequent worldwide fame. However, this success did not come without hard work and perseverance. Neither was it achieved without the simple acceptance that it can be possible.

The father of the trio, Ringo Garza Sr., had raised his sons in a musical household. Garza Sr created a band called the Falcones, and had inspired his sons to take on his legacy. “Our father was our biggest influence,” Bassist Jojo explains. “He showed us all kinds of music – of his music, as well as the music of a lot of the greats.”

Beatles vs. Stones – A Musical Shoot Out

The British Invasion brought us the two most popular rock groups of all time, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, as well as the liveliest debate in rock history – which band is the greatest? These two legendary bands will engage in an on-stage, mash-up duel – a musical “shoot out of the hits” if you will – featuring internationally renowned tribute bands, Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash.

“Electrifying show!” said the O.C. Register.

“The most unique tribute show in decades,” said the L.A. Times.

“The crowd was on their feet screaming the entire time!” said the Idaho Statesman.
“If you missed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones live, here is your second chance,” said the San Clemente Times.

Five alternating power sets with the two bands coming together on stage for an amazing encore makes this show a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Guitar Legend Dick Dale at The Cave

By |March 30th, 2016|Categories: All Ages, Rock, Shows, The Cave|Tags: |Comments Off on Guitar Legend Dick Dale at The Cave

About Dick Dale

The Dick Dale Phenomenon. His style is something different and unique. Since his first appearances Balboa, Ca. at the famed Rendezvous Ballroom, he has set and broken attendance records everywhere he’s performed. His appearances at the Rendezvous Ballroom broke every existing record for the Ballroom by drawing capacity crowds of over four thousand screaming dancing fans every weekend each night down on the Balboa peninsula.

Dick Dale invented surf music in the 1950’s. Not the ’60’s as is commonly believed. He was given the title “King of the Surf Guitar” by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a […]

The Tubes at The Cave

By |March 30th, 2016|Categories: All Ages, Punk, Shows, The Cave|Tags: |Comments Off on The Tubes at The Cave

The Tubes formed in 1972 in San Francisco from two Phoenix bands after both relocated to San Francisco in 1969. The Beans featured Bill Spooner, Rick Anderson, Vince Welnick and Bob Macintosh, while The Red White and Blues Band featured Prairie Prince, Roger Steen and David Killingsworth. After playing the 1970 World’s Fair in Japan, David Killingsworth left the Red, White and Blues Band leaving Roger and Prairie to audition bass players unsuccessfully. The Beans had been a local favorite in Phoenix selling out shows with a tongue in cheek concept rock show called “The Mother of Ascension” featuring costumes and props before moving to San Francisco. After moving, Bill Spooner worked at the Fillmore West sweeping floors in between Beans gigs at the Longshoarman’s Halls and other depressing venues. The band’s loud, heavy jamming style didn’t attract attention and the band would go back to Phoenix and sell […]

Suzy Bogguss at The Cave

About Suzy Bogguss

Suzy Bogguss didn’t set out to craft a Merle Haggard tribute record. Some might call that serendipity; she just calls it Lucky.

“Merle Haggard is a hell of a storyteller,” says Suzy. “When I hear his songs, I feel like I’m listening in on someone’s life.” On her new album, Lucky, a collection of songs all written by Haggard, Suzy does more than just listen—the CMA, ACM and Grammy Award-winning singer makes the country rebel’s compositions her own, reinterpreting classics like “The Bottle Let Me Down,” “Silver Wings” and “Today I Started Loving You Again” from a female point of view.

“Merle is one of the most masculine songwriters I’ve ever heard, and I’ve been watching boys cover his music for years. I just thought, ‘Why […]

Cash’d Out at The Cave

By |March 16th, 2016|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: |Comments Off on Cash’d Out at The Cave

About Cash’d Out

Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson vocals, Kevin Manuel guitar, George Bernardo drums, and Stephen Rey bass), a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets.

How can you tell?

Well, beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” and the group having won six San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, and being the only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, the real proof lies in what members of Cash’s inner circle have said. “Cindy Cash came to a show, we made […]
