Dead Man’s Party

By |September 11th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Dead Man’s Party

Oingo Boingo has had a rather interesting history. As they formed in 1972 under The Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo, their goal was to develop a interdisciplinary performance art act. The leader of the band is Danny Elfman, an American composer and songwriter, who has completed extensive works in film scores with industry legends such as Tim Burton. The band put together a theatrical performance with an eclectic mix of ska, rock, pop, and world music. As the band evolved, they transformed into an 8 piece ska influenced new wave band. As they went through this transformation, they decided to shorten their name to Boingo. Since then, they achieved significant success until their retirement in 1995. In their last show before retirement, they looked back at their history and called themselves Oingo Boingo in a fit of reminiscent and conclusive nostalgia.

Now, to […]

Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

By |September 10th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Alternative, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

Visions is a high quality tribute band that accurately emulates the music of Rush. While the wardrobe and physical props are the only focus for most tribute acts, Visions focuses on the music above all else. With a rather sophisticated repertoire, Rush’s music is not easy to replicate. Their progressive style will test even the most solid musicians, from the abnormal harmonic and melodic structures to the subtle nuances their song writing styles manifest. Rush’s music is so particular that there aren’t many tribute acts that honor them, much less successfully satisfy the ear of the dedicated Rush fan.

Rush has some of the most entertaining performances in modern rock history. Their fresh and unpredictable instrumental music always keeps you on your feet, with constant changes and twists that the normal rock band cannot compete with. At the same time, their lively and insightful lyrics will encourage you to let […]

Long Beach Dub Allstars

By |August 23rd, 2017|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Event, Punk, Reggae, Rock, The Cave|Tags: , |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 […]

An interview with Malo

By |August 20th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Event, Rock, The Cave|Tags: |Comments Off on An interview with Malo

Malo is an American latin rock band from San Francisco, featuring the brother of Carlos Santana, Jorge Santana. The band was oblivious to this when they recruited him to join Malo. “He came and auditioned, and he was good so we added him.” says front man Arcelio Garcia. In fact, they didn’t find out until 2 years later when Carlos came to one of their performances. Carlos and Jorge acted very familiar toward each other, which confused the band, until Arcelio asked Carlos if he knew Jorge. He was shocked to discover their tie in blood, and the degree of Jorge’s modesty.

Malo’s lead singer, Arcelio Garcia, had first started his musical journey as a funk singer. His mother said, “why don’t you play salsa?” and that simple suggestion influenced the trajectory of the rest of his life. He was told he was a bad kid, so […]

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 […]

WYNONNA and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband/drummer/producer, Cactus Moser, released their debut full-length album in February 2016 via Curb Records to critical acclaim.

Betts raved, “…Wynonna & The Big Noise brings a raw, unvarnished approach to the album’s dozen tracks, which run the gamut from gutsy blues to sweet, Seventies-inspired country-pop. While the LP is a natural for the wide-open Americana format, Wynonna’s legions of country fans will feel right at home…” WYNONNA […]

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 […]
