Al Jardine at The Cave

By |May 14th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave|Tags: , , , |Comments Off on Al Jardine at The Cave

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!

Your Trip to Big Bear: Food & Entertainment

By |May 14th, 2018|Categories: Event, The Cave|Tags: |Comments Off on Your Trip to Big Bear: Food & Entertainment

So Much to do, so little time to do it!

Big Bear is such an beautiful place to visit, filled with some amazing people and delicious food. For being such a small town, there is so much to do! The entire town is packed with a great array or possible things to do, and all of the options are almost overwhelming! So I’d like to provide some guidance from a local’s perspective.

The Boneyard Dish of the Week: Pulled Pork Irish Nachos

The Bone Yard Bar and Grill, a new restaurant in The Village has a wide selection of delicious meals to choose from, so it is rather difficult to decide which one to highlight! This appetizer caught my eye from the first time I saw it, because it is a jam packed dish with wholesome ingredients. I had trouble […]

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 […]

Friday the 13th with Moonshine Bandits

By |March 26th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized||Comments Off on Friday the 13th with Moonshine Bandits

Whiskey, Women, and US Patriotism

What are you doing on Friday the 13th? We’re going to be partying with a badass country rap group.

Moonshine Bandits formed in 2003, debuting their act with the album Soggy Crackerz (Soaked in Beer). Moonshine Bandits are all about partying,  reverence for God, and the “red, white, and blue collar”. They bring a sense of celebration wherever they go because they are proud of where they come from. As they say, ““If you ain’t proud of where you’re from, get the hell out of town”.

Moonshine Party

The Moonshine Bandits are one of the most fun loving and high energy bands we have seen here at The Cave, and we have had some pretty crazy acts. Their music is all about coming together and having a good time, while paying tribute to the things that have blessed us with this good life. The Moonshine Bandits […]

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 […]

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live at The Cave

By |March 13th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Alternative, Event, Punk, Rock, Shows|Tags: |Comments Off on Red Jumpsuit Apparatus live at The Cave

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus heads up to Big Bear on March 30th!

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus story goes back to 2003, actually much further back to when brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter first started playing on acoustic guitars their grandfather gave them, but we’ll skip the ‘they learned to play and formed a bunch of bands that ultimately lead them down the path to glory’ bit and jump in where they were making so much noise that it attracted Virgin Records who snapped them up released the bands debut LP, Dont You Fake It in 2006.

By the end of that year the album was certified Gold in the US, charted the singles Guardian Angel and their best known song, the anti domestic violence focused, Face Down (which is also featured in several video games) and spawned four music videos. A deluxe edition was released in early 2007 featured […]

Powerman 5000 Live at The Cave

By |March 13th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Punk, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Uncategorized|Tags: , |Comments Off on Powerman 5000 Live at The Cave

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 […]
