Formed by Brian Roark and Ryan Rickman in October 2010, Local Remedy started with a 12 song set, a hired drummer, and a bass player from Ryan's former band, Lighter Thieves. Playing with local Laguna Beach musicians Captain Dano, and dance/hip-hop group Chili Davis, they quickly expanded their set, and began playing gigs throughout Southern California. 

Later adding Josh Kaufman on drums and Peter Freeman on bass, Local Remedy has played over 800 shows throughout Southern California. Working with several local charities, the band has dedicated themselves to using their musical gifts to positively influence the surrounding community. They have raised money for several local recovery homes, and made a $1,000 donation through show proceeds to, which provides aid and tsunami relief in Japan.

After starting with a 12-song cover set, Local Remedy’s set now includes several original rock/reggae/blues songs, plus over 100 classic rock, modern rock, R&B and reggae tunes, including The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Franz Ferdinand, 311, Incubus, The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, CCR, Billy Idol, The Black Crows, The Ramones, Bob Segar, Van Morrison, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and many more!
