Red Hot Cholo Peppers

For over 30 years, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have captivated audiences with their high-energy shows and a special blend of funky rock n’ roll. Being fans of fun, funk, and everything rock n roll, The Red Hot Cholo Peppers re-create the fan experience with a uniquely Southern California twist.

They are most definitely not your average tribute band.

“It’s this instant vibe you get when you hear the name, people know it’s a party.” -David Strickland (Vocals, Guitar)

Clad in bandanas, flannels, and crashing parties with the same Cholo-style attitude you haven’t seen since before your Tio got locked up, the Red Hot Cholo Peppers bring you all the hits of your favorite band with extra chili on top.

With decades of experience as professional musicians, this 4-piece band fully understands its role in providing fun and engaging entertainment wherever they play. They are professionals, who happen to love what they do and take pride in doing it well. Every show they play is carefully tailored to reach maximum audience engagement and their diversity as a band allows them to throw in some surprising non-RHCP covers that always get people dancing, singing along, and shouting “Orale!” together.

Sharing live music brings magic to the crowd that no other activity can. Fonzo Rios (Bass, Backing Vocals) says, “I love how it can bring so many different people together for a shared emotional experience.” Every time they take the stage, the Red Hot Cholo Peppers want to bring you right along and share the fun that they have. You become a part of the show as we all remember the songs that sculpted us and our love of music.

Jumping Jack Flash

The members of Jumping Jack Flash are not entirely sure what it is about this music that causes such a reaction in audiences, but they see it on a nightly basis—they see it in the audience’s eyes, and on their faces. People rise to their feet and begin dancing, waving their arms in the air, singing along, but most of all– smiling! Soon the crowd is moving towards the stage, then packed up against it; some attempt to jump up on to the stage, while others lunge for one of the musicians.

JJF has performed at the elegant Winspear Performing Arts Center in Edmonton, Canada (1,000+), at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, Ca., and at theaters, amphitheaters, and casinos across the United States, and in Mexico; most recently in front of 12,000 fans in Mexicali.

Rolling Stone has described him as a “Waylon Jennings acolyte.. modern day outlaw [with a] hard hitting blue-collar brand of music” while NPR Music hailed, “Staying close to the sound and subject matter of classic outlaw artists like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe, Morgan is poised to lead this hand-worn brand of country to the next generation.” His most recent LP, Sonic Ranch (2015), was released to critical acclaim and praised by Detroit Free Press as, “a bold well-crafted album that doesn’t forsake the gritty undercurrent running through Morgan’s stuff.”

Indigenous

Born and raised on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji (Ma-TOE NON-gee) dedicates his latest release Time Is Coming (on Blues Bureau International) to the indigenous youth and all young people on the indigenous reservations.

Mato Nanji’s father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council. In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans. Formed by Greg and his brothers in the ‘60’s, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt. Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg’s vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age. With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.

Dusty Leigh

Dusty Leigh is far from your average performer. He started by combining the hardcore element of Hip-Hop with the wittiness of Pop and his style evolved to a genre he refers to as R&C – Rhythm and Country. The 31-year-old entertainer, hailing from Louisville, KY, prefers to set trends instead of following them, yet another reason he stands out in his state’s largest city. Dusty’s brand of witty wordplay has attracted a loyal following that call themselves the “Dust Gang.” They range from die-hard rap heads to party-minded frat kids and four-wheel enthusiasts to suburban housewives. His music transcends color lines and embraces creativity with an adventurous mix of genres, appealing to a broad audience. Dusty Leigh is the voice of the new generation.


Saturday, December 3  ·  The Dickies

Doors open at 7:00 pm
More information

The Dickies

The Dickies were the clown princes of punk, not to mention surprisingly longstanding veterans of the L.A. scene. In fact, by the new millennium, they’d become the oldest surviving punk band still recording new material. In contrast to the snotty, intentionally offensive humor of many comedically inclined punk bands, the Dickies were winningly goofy, inspired mostly by trashy movies and other pop culture camp. Their covers were just as ridiculous as their originals, transforming arena rock anthems and bubblegum pop chestnuts alike into the loud, speed-blur punk-pop — basically the Ramones crossed with L.A. hardcore — that was their musical stock in trade. As the band got older, their music slowed down little by little, but their sound and their sense of humor stayed largely the same, and they were an avowed influence on new-school punkers like Green Day and the Offspring.

More information

Queen Nation

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004 by David Hewitt / DMHE Music Agency. Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts. In 2013 Queen Nation was recognized as The World’s Greatest Queen Tribute by Mark Cuban, Ryan Seacrest and their cutting edge network AXS TV. Queen Nation was given a 1hr LIVE national broadcast from the Roxy in Hollywood, to 40 million viewers. A coinciding compilation album was released by AXS TV featuring two tracks recorded by Queen Nation. Most recently, Queen Nation was selected by The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team to perform on the infield of Angel Stadium as part of their Flashback Weekend.

Queen Nation’s live 100-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – We Are The Champions – Bohemian Rhapsody – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, sports arenas and private affairs.

Berlin

This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the provocative single “Sex (I’m A…)” from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill. Berlin’s first full-length LP was the gold Love Life in 1984. In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single “Take My Breath Away,” the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun.

Nunn left for a solo career in 1987, and Crawford and Brill teamed up in the Big F. In 1999, the band reunited to record some new studio material and also performed a concert, which, along with the new songs, was released as 2000’s Berlin Live: Sacred and Profane. This was followed a year later by a flurry of recording sessions that included co-writing tracks with Billy Corgan, among others. The end result, Voyeur, was their first full-length studio release in over 15 years
