Last In Line – The original Dio band

Last In Line was formed in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain, and Vivian Campbell, (Ronnie James Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the “Holy Diver”, “Last In Line” – the album from which they took their name, and “Sacred Heart” albums) teamed up with esteemed vocalist Andrew Freeman. The debut album “Heavy Crown” was released in February 2016, landing at #1 on the Billboard Heat-Seekers Chart. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when bassist Jimmy Bain unexpectedly passed away at the age of 68 on January 23, 2016.  Last In Line, honoring what they knew would be Bain’s wish to keep the band moving, brought in renowned bassist Phil Soussan (ex-Ozzy Osbourne) and committed to sustained touring in support of the album, hitting festivals, headlining clubs, and sharing the stage with metal luminaries such as Saxon and Megadeth.

In late 2017, the band gathered in L.A. to start the recording of the second album, which was produced by the band members and Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End: machine, ex-Dokken), who also produced the debut album. Having really gelled as a band while touring in support of the debut album, the songwriting came readily to the members. They’ve created a record that shows a big progression in sound, while immediately being recognizable as Last In Line thanks to Vinny Appice’s rhythms, thunderous bass from Soussan, amazing vocals from Andrew Freeman, and the roaring guitars of Vivian Campbell.

“The musical style of ‘II’ is different from ‘Heavy Crown’, but it wasn’t something that we planned to do,” explains Vivian Campbell. “Phil is a more intricate player than Jimmy was and that, together with the natural growth and development of the band led us to the songs on the album. As always, we simply started to jam on ideas and see where they led us. But it’s fair to say that the songs on this album sound more developed, with more parts and more experimentation than the songs on ‘Heavy Crown’. The first album set a tone, but on ‘II’ we developed that idea and took it to the next logical stage.”

Drummer Vinny Appice, on the sound of the new record and song writing process, says “I always sound like me. Viv and I have been playing together for years and have the same feel and pulse and attitude. Now with Phil on bass, he allows a more melodic approach on the bass parts making the songs even more interesting. He fits in perfectly being from the same musical family and time as me and Viv. Mr. Freeman sings from his soul and completes the band’s sound with his melodies and amazing range.”

Sledd

Sledd is a five piece, hard hitting, Heavy-Alternative, Album Orientated Rock, Musical Group from San Diego, CA. The Band was founded by Lead Vocalist/Frontman Cary Rothman, Keyboardist/Vocalist Peter DeLuke Jr and Brother/Drummer Dino DeLuke in March of 1995.

Sledd has played with, opened for, or toured with such legendary Hard Rock Musical Groups as: Tesla, Great White, The Bullet Boys, Gilby Clarke, Blue Oyster Cult, Dokken, Quiet Riot, Queensryche, Ratt, LA Guns, UFO, Skid Row, Cinderella and Y&T.

Their latest and third Album “Insane Laughter” has received National Airplay in several United States Cities. In April/May 2009, Sledd members along with Executive Producer and Tesla Bassist Brian Wheat recorded a four song EP at “J” Street Studios in Sacramento, CA. All four cuts later appeared on the self produced Sledd CD “Insane Laughter”. Sledd’s second Album ”Crooked Smiles” was produced by Great White Guitarist Mark Kendall. Kendall also managed the Band from 2001 – 2003.

Taz Taylor

Taz Taylor was exposed at a very early age to the golden era of Rock Guitar playing. Michael Schenker in UFO and then in his own band MSG, Gary Moore in his late-70s/early-80s heyday, Randy Rhoads and Jake E. Lee and of course the early Van Halen albums, all left an indelible mark on the musical psyche of Taz.

Pathology

PATHOLOGY is epitomized as the ultimate death metal assault to the ears. The band’s hunger to churn out bludgeoning metal coupled with meaningful themes instantly separates them from the rest.

It comes as no surprise that PATHOLOGY have created some of the most vivid and grotesque death metal in the current genre. The founding members of PATHOLOGY have roots in other extreme death metal bands, such as drummer Dave Astor as the founding member of both the grind-spazz project THE LOCUST and militant death squad CATTLE DECAPITATION.

PATHOLOGY’s current formation stands at its strongest with Dave Astor on drums, Daniel Richardson guitar, bass player Richard Jackson and vocalist Obie Flett to diversify the perfect lineup. Revealing an intense mixture of brutal riffs, crushing drums and imagery so blood-soaked, sickeningly twisted and filled with death that it’s impossible to look away.

Hollow Stage

Hollow Stage is a HEAVY METAL band with Death/Hardcore/Melodic influences based out of San Diego, CA.

Recently throughout 2019: With the recent addition of Frontman Jameson Hayes, the band has made appearances at legendary San Diego venues; Brick X Brick and Soma. And other venues in Anaheim and Pamona. As such, they have no intentions of slowing down and are ready to tear up the U.S. metal scene!

Berlin

“New music is the lifeblood of anybody making music— it’s that creation, excitement, new babies [songs]! It inspires me and it inspires others,” declares Terri Nunn, the charismatic and enigmatic singer of L.A.’s iconic synth electro-pop pioneers, BERLIN.

BERLIN will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics. Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves. The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative single “Sex (I’m A…)” from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. “The Metro” and “No More Words” were also chart toppers, but it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, “Take My Breath Away” that took the band to another level. The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN’s everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986.

Currently, Nunn is recording a brand new BERLIN studio album with her original BERLIN band members and co-writers, John Crawford (bass) and David Diamond (keyboards).  The album is scheduled for release in mid 2019. The album is being produced by Australian producers Andy and Thom Mak. The album marks the first collaboration by Nunn, Crawford and Diamond since Love Life, the third BERLIN album, released in 1984.

Mickey Avalon

Mickey Avalon’s life story plays out like an episode of VH1′s ‘Behind The Music,” marred by personal tragedy, triumphs and immense pain. Avalon’s back-story begins on the streets of Hollywood, California. Raised by his heroin-addicted father, he began selling pot at a young age, a trade he acquired from his mother. In an attempt to clean up his act, Mickey converted to Orthodox Judaism in his late teens, an effort that didn’t last due to constant family tragedy, such as his father’s death in a tragic drunk driving accident.

By his early 20s, Mickey had married, had a daughter, and moved out of California, relocating to Portland, Oregon. The serine surroundings of the Pacific Northwest couldn’t hide Mickey from his past for long, as his drug addled Hollywood lifestyle caught up with him in the form of an uncontrollable heroin addiction. As his life neared rock bottom, Mickey found himself broke, divorced, and turning to prostitution, just to support his smack habit. With a desire to once again get his life back on track, Avalon moved in with his sister, and the pair set out on the road to recovery. Tragedy struck again when his sister relapsed, and died from a heroin overdose.

After the deaths of both his father and sister, Mickey decided that he wanted more out of life, moved back to Los Angeles, and chose to make one final attempt to clean up his act. Shortly after his return, Mickey was befriended by ex-MTV VJ Simon Rex (aka Dirt Nasty), who encouraged Avalon to pursue his passion of hip-hop and even collaborated with him on some tracks. At the time, Avalon was staying in a sober living facility and had a strict curfew, so Dirt Nasty began passing out Mickey’s demo at Hollywood clubs, which helped Mickey develop a following among fans of the Los Angeles nightclub scene.

Black Hesher

Despite having origins separated by thirty years, Hip-Hop and Rock & Roll are not too distant cousins. They have a lot in common. For instance, each was born of the predominant African American youth culture of its time. In the case of each, white suburban kids and the population at large eventually caught up. Since then, the two musical forms have traveled together. As a result, artists have been creating hybrid sub-genres for decades.

First, on the East Coast Run-DMC and Aerosmith mashed up Rap and Classic Rock. On the West Coast, bands like Suicidal Tendencies and Ice-T’s Body Count married Hip-Hop and hardcore. Limp Bizkit and 311 further blurred the lines by adding Alternative Rock, Punk and even Ska. And then there were the Beastie Boys. From both coasts they created a completely unique b-boy bouillabaisse.

Fast forward to the present day, and enter Black Hesher. On the new album “Rituals,” the San Diego artist takes cues from all of the above, incorporates them, disregards them and makes something entirely new. Each of the twenty songs on this epic LP had me moving, and rewinding.

J. Andrew

Characterized by a raw and vivid creative lyricism, J. Andrew is a clear and direct kind of artist, not only for his content but also for his creative process.

Capable of capturing the genuineness of the first creative inspiration, his “Heart Attacked” is a perfect blend of lyricism, honesty and attitude.

J. Andrew is not afraid to step outside the box, and gets straight to the heart with an explicit highlight, emphasized by his vocal performance, which is penetrating, scratchy and rich in substance.

Tickets


This show has been rescheduled from the original date of May 2.
Tickets for the original date will be honored.

Easy Wind

Easy Wind has built a reputation of creating shows that pull deeply from the vibe and feel of classic ’70’s era Grateful Dead, a period when The Dead were firing on all cylinders of youth, exuberance, and creativity.

Coming from a virtual lifetime of studying and performing their catalog, Easy Wind cooks up setlists that would fit right in with the epic runs of Europe ’72, Spring ’77, or other magical runs of that era.

Easy Wind has the unique ability to embody the style, the jams, and the riffs that were the trademark of Garcia, Weir, and the rest of the band in their heyday.

The bus came by… It’s time to get on and experience Easy Wind.

The Dales

The Dales are a five piece Americana roots-rock band, carried by three part harmonies and a deep appreciation for classic songwriting and early country music.

The band came together in early 2016 when multi-platinum song writer, Drew Lawrence, (Christina Perri – Jar of Hearts) teamed up with four of his closest friends to begin performing the songs that would become their debut album, “Marie”.

A video of their song, “Still the Love” caught the ears of Grammy nominated producer Jerry Streeter (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile). The song was written as a dedication to bass player Kyle Vanes’ girlfriend, Heather Marie Allman who passed from Breast Cancer the year before.

This led to Jerry producing the bands debut album, “Marie” which was released in August of 2017. The Dales have spent the year on the highways of America supporting acts like the White Buffalo and Cris Jacobs. The group has also headlined sold out shows in Los Angeles as well as the west coast and midwest. Media play soon followed with features on NPR’s World Cafe and Acoustic Cafe as well as TV interviews on NBC and ABC.

Berkley Hart

For the last two decades Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart have been entertaining audiences with their natural down-home humor and masterfully-crafted songs . In 2018, they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a live performance of their debut album, “Wreck ‘N Sow”. Released in 2000, “Wreck ‘N Sow” was a critical success out of the box, winning the San Diego Music Award for Best Local Recording and helping Berkley Hart take home the coveted Best New Artist trophy as well. SLAMM magazine said of it, “Sometimes an album surfaces that is so emotionally and musically authentic that it crumbles resistance to its genre.” In the years since, they’ve played festivals, performing arts centers, and house concerts all over the country, recording another 10 albums and winning several more awards along the way. In 2016 alone, they put out three albums: “BHST” (with Eve Selis and Marc Intravaia), “A Berkley Hart Christmas”, and “Fleur De Lis”, a powerful collection of 20 songs combining their trademark vocal harmony and unique acoustic style to create a listening experience that is, as one critic put it, “warm and peaceful as a summer evening on the bayou”. They have also become well-known for their theme-shows, most notably their productions of “O Berkley Where Hart Thou”, an old-timey tribute to classic Americana, and their recreation of “The Last Waltz”, a passionate homage to The Band’s 1976 farewell concert. In 2019 Berkley Hart are still doing their best to live up to that SLAMM review of 20 years ago. Their latest release “While The Night Is Still Young” recently won the SDMA for Best Americana Album. If early reviews of it are any indication, their reputation for performances that are “emotionally and musically authentic” is alive and well.
