➕TRICIA FREEMAN DUO

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.

➕ ANDREW CORRADINI

“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.” 
— Nate Jackson - OC Weekly

“There’s always a sense of spontaneity when Andrew hits the stage… he makes me want to drink beer, clap my hands and dance. 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.”

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.
