From the So-Cal Hoedown performance:

“The performances this writer caught across an eight-hour span were mostly inspired, beginning with Pope Paul & the Illegals, the first act to play the Main Stage. The Santa Ana-based singer-guitarist Pope Paul and a rotating set of other players blended rockabilly with a good dose of country swing, blues and honky tonk including on several sterling originals ("Home Just Ain't No Place For Me," "Stars Don't Shine in Santa Ana").”

This quintet began their musical journey together in February 2013. Within 6 months the band had not only embarked on a national tour, but also released their debut ep, “Rhythm of the Road,” produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), engineered by Philip Allen (Adele), and mastered by Robert Vosgien (Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt) at Swing House Studios in Hollywood. This new, and even edgier material has simply added more fuel to the fire that Robert Jon & the Wreck ignite while performing. Audiences nationwide have crammed venues, salivating over a band that is determined to not miss the mark.

Fueled by this success, the Wreck took the road delivering fierce performances, emblazoned with commitment and dripping in a rawness that’s impossible to fake. Simply put, it is difficult to ignore when these five musicians take the stage. Little wonder they have made an impact on audiences across the country, where they’ve played a run of sold-out shows and proudly shared bills with talent the likes of Billy Sheehan (Steve Vai, David Lee Roth), Rodney Atkins, Andy Grammar and RIVAL SONS. 

They returned to the studio in Summer of 2014 in between tours to record their debut album, produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios (Led Zeppelin, Prince, The Doors) in Hollywood. Recording the 10 track album, “Glory Bound” live from the floor with minimal overdubs, the band has found there sound and strength in their songs. “Glory Bound” will be released in Feb. of 2015.

The past year the band, has played notable festivals, along with their self-booked tour including SXSW, performances at Vans Warped Tour, Country Thunder headlined by Keith Urban & Brad Paisley, River Roots Live headlined by Los Lonely Boys and Robert Randolph and the Family Band and Chinook Fest ’13 and ’14 with Sturgill Simpson and The Silent Comedy.

➕ TRICIA FREEMAN BAND

Raised on a Range of Music Styles

Raised in Kansas and Texas, Tricia’s earliest memories of music go back to her mother’s love of jazz and blues, flooding the house with the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and her favorite, Dinah Washington.  Her father loved it all, from the Latin American to classical. As she started developing her own taste in music, she began to lean more to the local country/bluegrass sound mixed with a rockin’ blues flavor that was prevalent in her college town of Lawrence, Kansas.

Self-Taught Blues Dynamo

She made the big move to California at the age of 19 and immediately bought a guitar and a “how to” chord book.  The rest just came naturally, from singing those country / blues songs at the local saloons, to performing in the stage production of “Godspell”, to performing at all sizes of venues, from  local taverns to major festivals up & down the coast.

Tricia Lives the Songs She Sings

She has toured Europe from Finland to Germany several times, with different line ups, performing songs from her own CDs and a blend of cover tunes that she makes completely her own with her bold original sound, that can only come from living the songs she sings.

Movies, TV, and Janis Joplin

Her studio work has brought her performance credits in 3 movies from Disney, Time Warner, and Indigo Films.  She also appeared on the television show, “Your Big Break”, paying tribute to Janis Joplin.

From Backup Vocals to Santana

Tricia traveled to Memphis several times to sing back up vocals on 2 CD’s of Walter Trout, the amazing blues guitarist from “Canned Heat”. While there, she worked with producer Jim Gains of Santana fame, as well as many other bands.

Classic Rock and Blues on Stage

Besides Walter Trout, Tricia has also shared the stage with the likes of Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money and in 2007, she opened for Al Green & John Fogarty at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, California.

The “Bette Midler Appeal”

Ms. Freeman has a bold, humorous stage presence that will have you rolling with laughter between songs.  This is why being compared to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad, and Melissa Etheridge, among others, has been “trumped” with other fan’s and critic’s opinions that she is much more like the multi-talented Bette Midler.  Indeed, Ms. Freeman has that “Midler” appeal.

Tricia is The Real Thing

This singer/songwriter puts on a great show, no matter what size the venue or the audience.  You will always get the real thing with Tricia Freeman.

Mixing traditional folk music with blues, country, soul and pop, Alice Wallace brings a modern touch to American roots music.

“Alice has become a shining light on the Los Angeles Americana music scene, sharing her songs of travel, adventure, life, love and loss in her authentic voice…as beautiful as the land she travels,” say the folks at California Country Records.

Alice’s style is heavily influenced by modern folk singers like Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile, but is also rooted strongly in the iconic voices that have defined folk and country music for decades: Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt. The 10 tracks on “A Thousand Miles From Home,” range from soulful blues to twangy country, but all of the songs have Alice’s distinct blend of influences across the folk, country and blues spectrums.

Simply put, it is difficult to ignore when these five musicians take the stage. Little wonder they have made an impact on audiences across the country, where they’ve played a run of sold-out shows and proudly shared bills with talent the likes of Billy Sheehan (Steve Vai, David Lee Roth), Rodney Atkins, Andy Grammar and RIVAL SONS. 

They returned to the studio in Summer of 2014 in between tours to record their debut album, produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios (Led Zeppelin, Prince, The Doors) in Hollywood. Recording the 10 track album, “Glory Bound” live from the floor with minimal overdubs, the band has found there sound and strength in their songs. “Glory Bound” will be released in Feb. of 2015.

The past year the band, has played notable festivals, along with their self-booked tour including SXSW, performances at Vans Warped Tour, Country Thunder headlined by Keith Urban & Brad Paisley, River Roots Live headlined by Los Lonely Boys and Robert Randolph and the Family Band and Chinook Fest ’13 and ’14 with Sturgill Simpson and The Silent Comedy.

➕ TRICIA FREEMAN BAND

Raised on a Range of Music Styles

Raised in Kansas and Texas, Tricia’s earliest memories of music go back to her mother’s love of jazz and blues, flooding the house with the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and her favorite, Dinah Washington.  Her father loved it all, from the Latin American to classical. As she started developing her own taste in music, she began to lean more to the local country/bluegrass sound mixed with a rockin’ blues flavor that was prevalent in her college town of Lawrence, Kansas.

Self-Taught Blues Dynamo

She made the big move to California at the age of 19 and immediately bought a guitar and a “how to” chord book.  The rest just came naturally, from singing those country / blues songs at the local saloons, to performing in the stage production of “Godspell”, to performing at all sizes of venues, from  local taverns to major festivals up & down the coast.

Tricia Lives the Songs She Sings

She has toured Europe from Finland to Germany several times, with different line ups, performing songs from her own CDs and a blend of cover tunes that she makes completely her own with her bold original sound, that can only come from living the songs she sings.

Movies, TV, and Janis Joplin

Her studio work has brought her performance credits in 3 movies from Disney, Time Warner, and Indigo Films.  She also appeared on the television show, “Your Big Break”, paying tribute to Janis Joplin.

From Backup Vocals to Santana

Tricia traveled to Memphis several times to sing back up vocals on 2 CD’s of Walter Trout, the amazing blues guitarist from “Canned Heat”. While there, she worked with producer Jim Gains of Santana fame, as well as many other bands.

Classic Rock and Blues on Stage

Besides Walter Trout, Tricia has also shared the stage with the likes of Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money and in 2007, she opened for Al Green & John Fogarty at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, California.

The “Bette Midler Appeal”

Ms. Freeman has a bold, humorous stage presence that will have you rolling with laughter between songs.  This is why being compared to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad, and Melissa Etheridge, among others, has been “trumped” with other fan’s and critic’s opinions that she is much more like the multi-talented Bette Midler.  Indeed, Ms. Freeman has that “Midler” appeal.

Tricia is The Real Thing

This singer/songwriter puts on a great show, no matter what size the venue or the audience.  You will always get the real thing with Tricia Freeman.

➕ TRICIA FREEMAN BAND

Raised in Kansas and Texas, Tricia’s earliest memories of music go back to her mother’s love of jazz and blues, flooding the house with the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and her favorite, Dinah Washington.  Her father loved it all, from the Latin American to classical. As she started developing her own taste in music, she began to lean more to the local country/bluegrass sound mixed with a rockin’ blues flavor that was prevalent in her college town of Lawrence, Kansas.

Self-Taught Blues Dynamo

She made the big move to California at the age of 19 and immediately bought a guitar and a “how to” chord book.  The rest just came naturally, from singing those country / blues songs at the local saloons, to performing in the stage production of “Godspell”, to performing at all sizes of venues, from  local taverns to major festivals up & down the coast.

Tricia Lives the Songs She Sings

She has toured Europe from Finland to Germany several times, with different line ups, performing songs from her own CDs and a blend of cover tunes that she makes completely her own with her bold original sound, that can only come from living the songs she sings.

Movies, TV, and Janis Joplin

Her studio work has brought her performance credits in 3 movies from Disney, Time Warner, and Indigo Films.  She also appeared on the television show, “Your Big Break”, paying tribute to Janis Joplin.

From Backup Vocals to Santana

Tricia traveled to Memphis several times to sing back up vocals on 2 CD’s of Walter Trout, the amazing blues guitarist from “Canned Heat”. While there, she worked with producer Jim Gains of Santana fame, as well as many other bands.

Classic Rock and Blues on Stage

Besides Walter Trout, Tricia has also shared the stage with the likes of Spencer Davis, The Little River Band, Olivia Newton John, Missing Persons, Eric Burdon and The Animals, Eddie Money and in 2007, she opened for Al Green & John Fogarty at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point, California.

The “Bette Midler Appeal”

Ms. Freeman has a bold, humorous stage presence that will have you rolling with laughter between songs.  This is why being compared to Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstad, and Melissa Etheridge, among others, has been “trumped” with other fan’s and critic’s opinions that she is much more like the multi-talented Bette Midler.  Indeed, Ms. Freeman has that “Midler” appeal.

Tricia is The Real Thing

This singer/songwriter puts on a great show, no matter what size the venue or the audience.  You will always get the real thing with Tricia Freeman.

“Packing crunchy guitars and light-hearted soul, Andrew’s music is a mesh of attitude-inspired rock and roll and taut indie pop with warm, buoyant melodies. This couldn’t have come at a better time. The appeal of his sound lies in his mix of good humor, sparkling soul and a folk simplicity that happily chases the colors of summer into the midnight bar scene. His music is as infectious as it is timeless. And it all lies within his irrepressible, natural ability and delivery; it’s just that simple. Quality songwriting and lyrical aptitude mixed with this welcoming, ancestral outlook on music and life has led to a strong foundation and will continue on the road to a limitless future for this whimsical troubadour.”

His sound is so distinctive and varied, he possesses the unique capability of evoking multiple responses: he’ll have listeners anywhere from swaying in the daisy fields to boot-stompin’ in the clubs.”

➕ANESHA ROSE AND FRIENDS

With comparisons to Grammy award winner Adele, Anesha Rose is a power house in her own right. From her dynamic original songs to her moving covers of Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks and of course Adele, her vocals are as bold and beautiful as she is. Working mainly as a solo artist throughout Orange County, Anesha has monthly residencies in Laguna Beach at Big Fish Tavern, Wine Gallery, The Cliff Restaurant and Marine Room to name a few. She can also be found sitting in with local bands up and down the coast as her dynamic voice is always welcomed to join the show! Following in the musical footsteps of her guitar genius “Popps,” Bill McCombe, Anesha released her first solo EP, Music Mama, in 2014. The album has been critically acclaimed and is cherished by her fans as a true break-through release. You would never believe the biggest voice in local music was too shy to sing in the choir when in elementary school. As a booking agent, I’m fortunate to see the best musical talent that comes through Laguna Beach and Anesha is definitely one of the best performers on the local circuit so get out and support LIVE Music and the musicians who bring it to us!

➕FERNET PARTY FEAT. BLUE MOON GURUS

Want to know a secret? 

What if we told you there was a members-only society for bartenders and industry elite, and you could be a part of it? We want to officially let you in on one of the best-kept industry secrets. Yeah, you. 

We’re talking about the unspoken signal between all bartenders in the biz — the secret handshake; the unseen tip of the hat that signals you’re in. In the club and in the know. Except, rather than a jacket or membership card, your way into this underground ring of professional drinkers, the way to identify yourself to your comrades, is with a special token— a Fernet coin. 

Chances are, you may have seen this exchange going down. Someone grabs a seat at the bar, orders a shot of Fernet and slams down a coin. Depending on whether the bartender antes up with a coin of their own, the odd man out is buying. 

But what some of the game’s own players may not know is that the drinking tradition  hearkens back to a timeworn military tradition: the challenge coin. Legend has it a particularly wealthy WWI lieutenant issued bronze medallions to his squadron, which proved life-saving when one pilot was shot down behind enemy lines. His medallion proved his nationality and saved his life. Ever since, coins have served as a form of ID amongst brothers in uniform — earned as a rite of passage and called upon to show loyalty, unity, and even to find out who's doing the dirty work — like who’s buying. 

Fernet Branca picked up on this unique tradition and brought it to the bars. Special-issue coins are designed per city or county, and always issued in limited quantities — making them desirable and rare, and most importantly, tough to come by. Just like the military tradition, these too must be earned. 

But don’t worry, Marine Room’s got your back. We’re giving you a chance to earn one of your own. Starting December 1st, 2018, every shot of Fernet you buy will enter you to win a special-edition Orange County Fernet coin. The more you order, the better your chances. Come December 20th, we’ll be throwing a party to announce the lucky winner. Don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to buy additional raffle tickets the night of our event.

Trust us, you don’t want to be caught in a coin challenge without one. So pony up, call a shot, and let’s find out who’s buying.

CRIMSON AND CROWBAR

CRIMSON AND CROWBAR

In 1991 David formed Crimson Crowbar, initially to be able to play with all of the talented L.A. musicians he had met over the years. It was a “collective”. With so many top “touring pros” coming home on tour breaks, David was able to put together some incredible lineups of musicians that would otherwise never get to play together. Players like Jorgen Carlsson (Gov’t Mule) Mitch Marine (Dwight Yokum) Mike Malinin (The GooGoo Dolls) Chris Ralles (Pat Benetar) and Erik Eldinius (Billy Idol) There were many magical nights!

From time to time though something really special happens. Such is the case when in 1993 David and long time friend and extremely talented guitarist/vocalist Frank Simes started playing together regularly. This “duo” version of Crimson Crowbar became very popular! And now after 1000’s of shows, 3 records and more than 20 years later, it is still the way a lot of people remember the band.


David & Frank still appear together from time to time but it’s slightly more difficult these days now that Frank is the musical director for The Who.


So then “The Collective” returned for a while and players like Stevie DiStanislao (CSN & David Gilmour) and John Avila (Oingo Boingo) Greg Camp (Smash Mouth) Michael Klooster (Smash Mouth) were regular members of the ever evolving band. And still show up from time to time…


This brings us to present day and that “special lineup” once again. Enter Todd Wolf on Drums, (Beth Hart) Wade Biery on Bass/Vocals (Christopher Cross, Don Felder, Joe Walsh & Glenn Frey) and Emily Kilimnik on Violin. Together these four have been playing to packed houses all over Southern California! With their popularity on a steady rise and big plans for the future, as anyone who has seen them will tell you, this is a polished, great sounding, must see show!
