Isaac Rother & The Phantoms/The Village Idiots

Isaac Rother & The Phantoms call back to an era where rock n' roll was simple and dangerous. The voodoo magic of early rock n' rollers such as Bo Diddley and Screaming Jay Hawkins is seamlessly fused with tough 60's groups like the Animals and the tongue in cheek humor of classic novelty hits like Wooly Bully and Surfin' Bird. Today, with the world of music literally at our fingertips, the camp and ritual of rock n' roll has almost been forgotten, residing mainly in the stories and recordings of the past. Isaac Rother and the Phantoms bring back the golden mystic of this past. They do so with top notch musicianship and hard rockin' original material, rendering them a cut above the rest. Behold… The Unspeakable Horror of Isaac Rother & The Phantoms!

The Right Amount of Wrong

Right Amount of Wrong plays at a variety of local clubs and venues with a selection of popular, obscure covers, and originals that make them an exciting band to watch perform.  Originally started as a musical outlet for Francesca Garofoli's expressive rock inspired vocal technique this band's sound has evolved into a unique and original take on pop, rockabilly, lounge and swing.
Francesca Garofoli is from Italy and currently lives in Ventura, CA and seems to be making herself at home sharing her exotic culinary talents with us. 
Guitarist Ben Buttner spends a lot of time with his guitar, some say too much but that's what keeps him from trying to join the circus...not that that's a bad thing.
Josh Meyers the bass man has an interesting career studying dirt and rocks(actual rocks) and happens to slap a mean bass. 
Marco Perez on the drums completes the lineup. His extensive background in latin rhythms, reggae, funk, punk-rock, and rockabilly gets everyone's bodies moving in ways they never thought possible. 
The four of these characters couldn't be anything but just the Right Amount of Wrong.

Tiffany Wilson Band/Shylah Ray Sunshine Band

Tiffany Wilson is a true musical artist and songwriter whose voice speaks to something real and soulful. Not content with writing only standard love songs, her latest album "#SeeSharp" also speaks of inner and outer change, politics, and vision of a brighter future.

As a solo artist, Tiffany released her first original project "Music Therapy" in 2009 and her sophomore album “#SEESHARP” in July 2016. With this project, Tiffany's plan is to use her voice, pen and outlook to shed some light and love on what's taking place in our shared world.

The production of her sophomore release is a conscious blend of the sounds of the past and the future. It is a mix of classic live soul & funk music filtered through her contemporary R&B roots and sensibilities. Eschewing the retro soul fad and moving towards a unique combination of past, present, and future-

Ms. Wilson is a true original.

Tyler Grant and Friends

"Caravan to WinterWonderGrass Primer"

 

Boulder, Colorado-based Cosmic Americana band Grant Farm has entertained a growing fan base on the nation’s club and festival scene since its founding in 2009 by vocalist and National Flatpicking Guitar Champion Tyler Grant.  

Built on the fundamentals of love, family, and music, the band is a sure bet for fans of high-energy, authentic artists as diverse as Sturgill Simpson, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Phish. Comprised of zany, creative and highly musical comrades, Grant Farm members include Grant (aka “The Champ”), Adrian “Ace” Engfer (bass and vocals), Sean “Magic” Macaulay (drums) and Kevin “Money” McHugh (keyboards and vocals).
 
Daniel Mescher of Colorado Public Radio dubbed Grant Farm “some of the ablest musicians not only in the state of Colorado, but in the nation.” Members’ prior experience includes playing with groups like The Emmitt-Nershi Band, Donovan Frankenreiter and Hot Soup. Collectively, they had also shared stages with notable artists Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tim O’Brien, Tony Rice, Keller Williams, Jon Oates and the like and with notable groups The String Cheese Incident, Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band and The Infamous Stringdusters.

The band’s latest release, Kiss the Ground (Summer 2016), represents its first full-length concept album and its third album of original music. Speaking to the struggles we all face as working people, Kiss the Ground sends a positive message while acknowledging real hardship in a society that expects far too much. “We think of this as our ode to the working people,” says Grant, whose song, “Get in Line,” discusses the high price we pay for things we want in life. Kiss the Ground explores real and mythological connections to the human struggle and pays homage to the "Working Class Hero," an archetype famously described by John Lennon.
Previous Grant Farm albums include a 2012 self-titled debut and a 2014 follow up, Plowin' Time, which reached #2 on JamBand Radio Charts and charted on Americana Radio. In 2014, the band also released the Meeting on the Mountain EP, an inspired collaboration with the group Fruition.

The band has also created the acclaimed Meeting on the Mountain LIVE, a collaborative, live webcast concert experience featuring Grant Farm as the house band and Tyler Grant as host. To date, episodes have featured Dave Bruzza of Greensky Bluegrass, Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident, Todd Sheaffer of Railroad Earth, The Dead Winter Carpenters and other guests.

Like a “traveling Gypsy family,” Grant Farm enjoys their life of touring, writing and adventuring together as they share their music up and down the North American roots music line.

Elijah Ocean

It’s twenty-seventeen in the southwestern corner of America. There’s snow in the distant mountains and the slow desert sunset creeps through the windshield of the Mercury on 40 West. The young man is driving home, wherever that is. 

He was born in a small woodland house in the Hudson Valley, raised in rural Maine, and enlightened by time spent in New York City. He’s landed in Los Angeles for now, where the Sunset Strip is a wasteland, Silverlake has peaked, and the spirit of Laurel Canyon echos through the hills of Highland Park. The end of the world is a damn inspirational place to be. 

He writes and records. The hard work shines through in his craft without a scrap of it being over-thought. It’s American music. It’s conceived on highways between cities past their prime. It’s born from memories and dreams of fresh starts. There’s rich history to draw from in Nashville, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Bakersfield and Austin, but he doesn’t desire a repeat. He celebrates the richness of a multi-generational record collection while adding a fresh voice to the conversation, and the music is new.

Listen up.

Every year Elijah Ocean crisscrosses the country singing his songs and making memories. With three full-length LPs under his belt and a fourth in the chamber, Ocean is just hitting his stride. 

For now there’s a much-needed diner booth in Needles on 66. Welcome to California. Set your clocks.

They have become mainstays at a nearby Southern Californian institution, The Old Place, regularly performing for patrons at the ever-packed restaurant in the mountains. There, they caught the ear of the late bassist Rick Rosas (Neil Young, Joe Walsh), who became a mentor to the group. They spend their remaining hours rigorously touring, headlining shows across the country while attracting the attention of sonic peers such as alt-country act The White Buffalo and Mississippi Blues legend Watermelon Slim, playing with both on several occasions.

The Upbeat

The Upbeat was formed in 1985, and for the past 25 years has been pumping out a unique blend of ska, roots reggae, and rocksteady, with politically and environmentally conscious lyrics. In 1993, driven by their desire to promote the music they loved, The Upbeat released their debut 5 track demo under the moniker “Upbeat Recordings”. This stark freshman effort garnered them airplay across the country and a series of compilation offers from the likes of Epitaph/Hellcat Records, Moon Records, and SRH Productions.

In 1995, the band released their first full length album and sold 5,000+ units locally. By this time their live reputation preceded them, sending them into a series of surf, skate and snowboard videos including Transworld Video Magazine and The Fox Sports Network. This brought the band even further praise, securing them a world-wide fan base and setting the stage for the band’s subsequent, prolific west coast touring. During this time, The Upbeat shared the stage with the likes of such varied artists as The Skatalites, Burning Spear, Sublime, Sugar Ray, No Doubt, Bad Manners, The Specials, The Wailers, Fishbone, Steel Pulse, and The Twinkle Brothers, to name a few.

In 2000, The Upbeat released their second album, "Backyard Knowledge", and ten years later, a host of new songs were released on their album, "Shuku", and is proof that this dedicated lineup still has all the passion they started with, so many years ago.

La Junta/Underground Sessions Global Rhythms Edition

La Junta/Underground Sessions Global Rhythms Edition

Join us for a night of irresistible global rhythms as La Junta Sound System takes over Underground Sessions during the Labor Day holiday weekend! Featuring special guest DJs Degruvme, Yukicito and Glenn Red, La Junta Sound System's infectious grooves encompass everything from cumbia to bhangra—all infused with heavy doses of Afro-beats and bass to keep things sultry and sweaty on the dance floor.

If you have ever experienced La Junta or Afro Funke events in Los Angeles, then you know exactly what you're in for. Either way, you're in for a night you won't soon forget! Ojai's own Loud DJs crew is proud to bring you this event, which marks the first time La Junta Sound System has performed anywhere in Ventura County. To to say this is a special treat for the Ojai music scene would be an understatement.

LA JUNTA
La Junta, or 'the gathering' in Spanish, is a biweekly summer event bringing together people of all backgrounds in the name of friendship, dancing, and deep music from points around the globe. Based in the community of Alhambra at the western edge of LA's San Gabriel Valley, eventgoers are treated to sun-kissed afternoons in an outdoor cantina, as cool breezes, fresh mist, music, food, libations, smiles, and dance moves joyfully flow into dusk.

DEGRUVME
The mean streets of San Gabriel Valley's Monrovia suburb groomed and nearly led David aka 'degruvme' to an illustrious career in competitive paintball. Lucky for us, though, that he instead fell in love with deejaying, cutting his teeth in Fresno's deep house music scene at his BodyLanguage events. These days, he divides his free time among family, friends, and music production, as well as planning and mixing at La Junta functions. While he works on his ultimate mission to earn a living as a super music producer, weekdays find this Yucateco posing as a nerdy I.T. director, holding it all together with black coffee, sugar packets and occasional romps to find the perfect cochinita pibil taco. With his paintball skills still intact, degruvme is voted 'Most Likely to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse.'

YUKICITO
Hailing from Osaka, Japan via Boyle Heights, CA, Yukicito is a diamond that keeps revealing shiny new facets. He first brandished his music production chops, then solid skill behind both the turntables and the soundboard, and again with his hands on a djembe, cuica, pandeiro and Colombian gaita flute. There are even rumors he gets around on a trumpet and trombone. Out on the floor, he dazzles the ladies with fluency in the dance languages--salsa, cumbia, merengue, forró, samba--he's got 'em all! Yuki's broad tastes span across music and, equally, food. He loves the fare from his homeland, but seems just as pleased ogling a dinner plate with anything from street tacos to fried chicken, not to mention an obsession with Cuties tangerines. Yukicito's plan for world domination is to travel all over with his music as the ticket.

GLENN RED
It took little else but our friendly smiles and a forkful of panna cotta to woo Glenn Red into visiting La Junta in Season One. The rest is history. He became the final piece of our team and, more importantly, was also quickly suckered into joining our Walking Dead parties ;))He also took over the title of oldest team member (which we loved!). With Glenn's graying goatee, though, come years of deejay know-how and deep music crates. Since owning his first LP 'SaturdayNight Fever' as an eight-year-old in Walnut, CA, his vast taste in music is now rivaled only by his vast hat collection. By day, he designs fliers and web pages promoting how cool events will be; by night he sets out to prove it. Glenn plans to keep connecting good people one rhythm at a time for years to come.

Andre Henry / ALEK FIN / sleepercub

Andre Henry is an "impassioned, award-winning singer-songwriter & speaker talking about shit that matters"

ALEK FIN is a Los Angeles, CA based electronic musician, producer, and engineer.

sleepercub has been emitting a tapestry of ethereal sound and likely silence, interwoven and slowly penetrating like the sun poking through the thick marine layers of a usual ocean side morning in concession. In an attempt to deter a treacherous path of addiction and to fill a spiritual void, the duo succumbed to an array of analog and digital tools to craft what they both shared to be a common love of music. While they both shared similar spiritual defeats, David and Angelique’s paths crossed in a much more positive light with music, often paralleling their vocal melodies with the poignancy of love and loss. Their music evokes imagery of fog-engulfed redwoods and lusterless skies, letting in the terror twilight of dawn while shedding the shadows that plague their past; a sweet sincerity that is as personal as it is beautifully vague. Since their formation and collaboration, sleepercub have strived to create and share their music with the external world, a spiritual projection of universal connectivity translated into the universal language of music.

Petrella and Mixed Influence

Imagine Tina Turner singing Country music.  Now, stretch that image to imagine a voice that goes beyond this by blending roots, soul and R&B into a fresh, intuitive and well-written country music..that is Petrella.  In the whole world of Country and Soul, there are plenty of acts that sell hundreds of thousands (even millions) of units; but there is none that blend pure soul with country as well as Petrella.  Dubbed "a true vocal power house who will lead you to believe that every song is sung by a completely different person" by Matt Yeager of the Morning News, Petrella's style melds hints of Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Macy Gray and - yes - Tina Turner into a beautiful, versatile sound all her own.  

Petrella began her career as a singer/songwriter 25 years ago by creating a fusion of rhythm & blues and country music called Country-Soul.  This inventive new sound landed Petrella on the Cover of Cash Box magazine and produced 5 singles that made it to the top 100 on the Country Music Charts with her latest single from the 100 Proof Woman CD going to Number 15 on the Billboard Hot Country single sales chart.  Petrella has performed on the Ernest Tubbs Midnight Jamboree radio show, has opened for Gladys Knight and has six nationally distributed CDs.
