Angel City Dixieland Band
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. In true patriotic style, the show begins with “Star-Spangled Banner” and concludes with the traditional Conejo Stars & Stripes Parade! Plus patriotic-themed crafts for kids! www.angelcitymusic.com

Folk Harmonies & String Instruments
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 Tribute to Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band
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 Tribute to 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
