Blue Oyster Cult: An Epic origin

By |September 18th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, The Cave, Uncategorized||Comments Off on Blue Oyster Cult: An Epic origin

Blue Oyster Cult is an incredibly insightful and imaginative band. Their music and lyrics are rather articulate in the way it is structured and conveyed, and certainly not among the status quo in the niche of rock and roll. Yet, despite the subtle complexities in the arrangements of their music, they still manage to deliver it in a package that the average person can easily understand and digest.

Originally named multiple times, the band had been through a lot of changes. The most notable of original names is Soft White Underbelly, which is a reference to Winston Churchill’s perception of Italy in World War II. He had seen Italy as the weak spot he could take advantage of to defeat Germany. The name Blue Oyster Cult comes from a poem the manager had written about a group of blue aliens who clandestinely […]

J Mann Music: An Authentic twist

By |July 24th, 2017|Categories: Uncategorized||Comments Off on J Mann Music: An Authentic twist

On Friday, July 28th, we have a very talented musician coming to play at The Cave. J Mann Music performs almost full time all year round playing everything from corporate events to concerts. He has been critically acclaimed by peers and clients as a high quality performer with the perfect energy for a party.

Jason plays popular covers with an authentic twist, and will perform some original music as well. He has played music for many years, first playing piano. When he decided to pick up the guitar, his fan base chipped in and bought him three guitars to kick off the introduction of a string instrument to his career. He has used them well. His take on the song I’m Yours by Jason Mraz is especially impressive.

This event will be free with a full bar. It will also be all ages! The Cave is a family friendly venue with […]

Surf music pioneer Dick Dale coming to The Cave in Big Bear Lake

WONDER VALLEY >> In the annals of rock ’n’ roll, legendary guitarist Dick Dale needs no introduction.

Distinguished by his left-handed playing on an inverted Fender Stratocaster, his machine gun staccato picking technique and his thick, reverb-saturated sound, Dale is best known for pioneering his signature “surf music” sound in the 1960s, characterized by hits such as “Let’s Go Trippin’ ” and “Misirlou.”

In 1994, a new generation was introduced to Dale’s music when “Misirlou” blasted during the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino’s neo-noir classic film “Pulp Fiction.”

Dale is bringing his showmanship and musical prowess to The Cave in Big Bear Lake on Saturday.

“I love Big Bear,” Dale, 79, said during a phone interview. “We just love it with a passion because I used to fly up there. We love the outdoors.”

The “we” Dale refers to is he and his wife and publicist, Lana, whom he dotes over and spends more time […]
