“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.

Puddle of Mudd’s Origin
Sometimes you have to walk through some shit to get to where you want to go in life. For Puddle of Mudd, that’s quite literally what they had to do to get their band started. Their practice space was right next to the Missouri river, which always flooded and forced them to “walk through a pile of shit” in order to get there. Even though there were always some muddy obstacles in their path, they never let it stop them. In fact, they embraced the difficulties that they were forced to face and made it a part of their identity. With persistence, they worked their way through an album and proudly called themselves Puddle of Mudd for all the obstacles they overcame on that Missouri River levee. The band was formed in Kansas City with Wes Scantlin (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jimmy Allen (lead guitar), […]
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!

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 […]
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”.
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 […]
