The English Beat

By |May 30th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Punk, Reggae, Rock, Shows, The Cave||Comments Off on The English Beat

“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.

Long Beach Dub Allstars

By |August 23rd, 2017|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Event, Punk, Reggae, Rock, The Cave||Comments Off on Long Beach Dub Allstars

Most people are impassioned by the sound of the iconic songs from the Southern California Ska/punk band Sublime. They brought a fresh sense of excitement with their performance, and clarity with their inspiring musical craftsmanship. As Sublime grew bigger, they never expected something would go terribly wrong.

After the death of singer Bradley Nowell, the band came to a sudden halt. In order for the rest of the members to honor their talents and fallen brother, they formed the band Long Beach Dub Allstars. This is a 7 piece dub/ska/rock band that plays all over California. Their music is a perfect mix between reggae, ska, and rock; it caters to those who want to jam to the vibe of the music, as well as those who want to rock out.

The Long Beach Dub Allstars are an incredibly inspiring band, and they are […]

The Righteous and the Wicked

By |July 20th, 2017|Categories: Punk, Reggae, Rock, Tribute Act||Comments Off on The Righteous and the Wicked

Red Hot Chili Peppers is more than just a musical group; they are a cultural icon. The rare style and technique they manifest has stood the test of both time and critique. Anothony Keidis’s (front man) charismatic style of singing reflects a great deal of soulful wisdom. Flea exudes a fun loving attitude and personality the audience thrives off of. Their style of playing is so unique that few can recreate it at the same caliber, except Righteous and The Wicked: a tribute to Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This is a group of four well established and experienced musicians who came together to perpetuate the heart and soul of RHCP. They bring every ounce of passion forged by the original band, and convey it articulately on stage. They are bringing the fire to the Cave’s world class stage on Friday, August 21st! Connect with them on Facebook and reserve your […]

Ozomatli at The Cave

By |January 12th, 2016|Categories: All Ages, Reggae, Shows, The Cave||Comments Off on Ozomatli at The Cave

PLACE IN THE SUN, the eighth album by multi-genre, multi-cultural Grammy winning band Ozomatli, takes the band’s street-party consciousness to new heights of eclecticism. Produced by the band and long-time friend, world renowned engineer Robert Carranza and featuring collaborations with the legendary Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart and Xandy Barry of WAX LTD, PLACE IN THE SUN is just the latest proof of the band’s relentless vitality. Shifting gears from electro-cumbia to garage rock, hip-hop, and Pérez Prado mambo, Ozomatli infuses a DJ party mix with dynamic live band chops and attitude.

Bursting onto the L.A. stage with their first eponymously titled album in June 1998, Ozomatli capitalized on being the talk of the live music scene, particularly their show-stopping gigs at venues such as Dragonfly, Opium Den and The Viper Room. By 1999, they were touring with Carlos Santana and soon won the Grammy for “Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album” […]
