Angel City Dixieland Band
Independence Day, Sunday, July 4
Join us for some energizing, toe-tapping fun! One of Los Angeles’s longest-running New Orleans-type bands, the ANGEL CITY DIXIELAND BAND performs all the songs from the city people call “The Big Easy.” Formed by trumpeter Chris Tedesco 33 years ago in 1987, the band soon became in demand at Disneyland as well as other Southern California theme parks and can be found performing all the way from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Yearly, they are the LA Dodgers’ Dixieland band of choice for opening day and whenever the team is in the World Series. The Angel City Dixieland Band performs all of the most memorable, upbeat Dixieland tunes such as “ When Saints Go Marching In,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Hello Dolly,” and many other tunes made famous by trumpeter/vocalist Louis Armstrong, The Firehouse Five, trumpeter Al Hirt, and clarinetist Pete Fountain. www.angelcitymusic.com
Folk Harmonies & String Instruments
Sunday, July 25
Creating a magical and organic vibe that translates into the feeling of the music, members of The Riverside often sing and play around a single old-fashioned microphone, seamlessly blending the musical composition of their harmonies and instruments. Since 2012, the band has released four homegrown records and an EP; more songs and albums are currently in the works. “The Riverside is a traditional melodic and harmony-driven folk string band hailing from Southern California, founded by husband and wife Jake and Lorien Jeanson in 2012. The highly engaging four-piece [band] dynamically performs around one microphone, where each instrument and voice crafts a specific part of each story; creating intimate, savory folk music that warms the heart and feeds the soul.” -Nicholas Edward Williams, Earthtone Booking. www.theriversidefolk.com; Facebook
Turn the Page – A Celebration of Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band
Sunday, August 15
Bob Seger. The name alone brings back a flood of memories. Memories of growing up and a time when music helped define who you were. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band truly provided the soundtrack to a generation, especially those growing up in the Mid-West. Turn the Page – A Celebration of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band faithfully recreates all the classic Bob Seger material including “Old Time Rock and Roll,” “Night Moves,” “Against The Wind,” and, of course, “Turn the Page.” If there ever was a pure Rock and Roll fact, it's that Bob Seger's music is at its BEST when performed LIVE! For the last 12 years, Turn The Page has been capturing and delivering that excitement and passion to audiences all over the country. The only way to get closer to Bob Seger's Live show would be to have Seger himself. www.turnthepageonline.com; Facebook
Jack of Heart Band – A Tribute to Bob Dylan & The Band
Labor Day, Monday, September 6
The final concert of the summer brings The Jack of Hearts Band – Tribute to Bob Dylan & the Band, to the Conejo Valley. For over five decades, Bob Dylan has remained one of the most important figures in modern American music. Since 2010, The Jack of Hearts Band has authentically replicated the sound of Dylan-- from the early 60's folk scene to his radical electric conversion culminating in Blonde on Blonde, the Woodstock years, and through the '70s to masterpieces such as Blood on the Tracks, the Rolling Thunder Revue and beyond. Dylan's legendary collaborators--The Band--who famously backed him on his '66 and '74 tour, as well as on The Basement Tapes, are also heavily featured. Having performed across the United States, The Jack of Hearts Band continues to perform a spectacular live experience showcasing the very best of American folk rock. www.jackofheartsband.com; Facebook
