Vol. 10, No. 21 – July 19 – Aug 1, 2017 – Ventura Music Scene

The Tequila & Taco Music Festival will take over Plaza Park the weekend of July 22 and July 23. DJ Cue will be entertaining both days with live music from Metalachi and SambaDá on Saturday, and then on Sunday, SambaDá returns followed by a tribute to the late great Selena by Adelaide. Proceeds from this event help to benefit Food Share, Ventura County’s food bank. Get the low down and ticket information at www.tequilaandtacomusicfestival.com.

“An American Season” is the theme this year for the Ventura Music Festival which is underway at several locations around town; the full itinerary and ticket information can be found at VenturaMusicFestival.org; I’ll be taking in Perla Batalla on Friday July 21 (sold out) and Simply Three on Saturday, July 22. I’m really looking forward to attending my first concerts at the Ventura Performing Arts Center too!

Summer just wouldn’t be the same without Music Under the Stars at the historic Olivas Adobe on Saturday nights. Many of these shows sell out so be sure to find out before you head over hoping to buy tickets there. The City hosts the extremely popular “The Swing Kings” on Saturday, July 22 and then “Steely Jam” on Saturday July 29. Call the City of Ventura during regular business hours at (805) 658-4726 for ticket availability.

We’re just days away from the Ventura County Fair opening and with it another fun line up of musical entertainment on the Grandstand stage. There’s a wide array of genres from disco with KC and the Sunshine band to modern country and Wynonna and the Big Noise. All concerts are included in the price of admission to the fair. I hope to catch several of the acts this year including Sugar Ray (I had the privilege of interviewing Mark McGrath years ago), and Shinedown who have had eleven number one singles on the Billboard Magazine rock charts (third most of all time behind Van Halen and Three Days Grace).

I have to say that I’ve been having fun on my radio show and playing so much great music from local artists. I love it when I can play relevant tunes from events happening, like playing a set of bands playing at Surf Rodeo (Raging Arb and the Redheads, Birdbrain, 50 Sticks of Dynamite, Rey Fresco and All-a-Blur), music from artists participating in the Ventura Music Festival (Simply Three rock!), and I’ve even been playing tunes from bands playing this year at the Ventura County Fair (KC & the Sunshine Band, Shinedown, Sugar Ray); but I’m always looking for more music to share. Please drop me a line if you have any suggestions! “The Pam Baumgardner Music Hour” airs Tuesdays 5-6 pm with rebroadcasts on Friday at 5 and again on Sunday at noon on KPPQ-LP here in Ventura at 104.1 FM.

YAY!!! It’s time for Surf Rodeo with two days of fun in the sun at the beach and featuring not only a surf competition, but cool bands playing on two stages over the weekend of July 15th and 16th. There will be tons of music featuring artists like Rey Fresco, Thee Commons, Stoneflys, 50 Sticks of Dynamite, Bird Brain, The Rouse, Honey Owl, Mariachi El Bronx, and Super Duper Kyle who will be performing on Sunday (he’s been selling out shows in Chicago, Detroit, etc…). Be sure to swing by the VenturaRocks.com and Ventura Breeze booth on Seaward while you’re out having fun and say hello!

You won’t want to miss Women in the Round, “Voices”, at the Bell Arts Factory on Saturday, July 15 with performances from Andrea Landin, Michelle Rosenblum (aka Melody Bird), Donna Lynn Caskey, Shelby Figueroa and Amber Bassett. Show starts at 7 and it would be awesome of you to make a donation at the door to support their efforts.

 

Throwing Oxnard some love, the Collection at River park is offering free summer concerts on Thursday nights beginning with Dirty Rice on July 6 followed by Led Zepagain on the 13th, and Southbound and Company on July 22.

Congratulations to Jan for opening her third restaurant (she also owns Prime here in Ventura), this one is right smack dab in the middle of downtown Ventura at 391 E. Main Street. She named it Casa Bella and will be providing live music three nights a week: Tuesdays with Adam Tunney and “Rat Pack” type music, Encore on Fridays with R&B Motown sound, and cool jazz on Saturdays with Ricky Williams. All music is expected to get underway by 7 pm.

If you’re a TOOL fan, then you know the band just wrapped up a tour (yeah, no new album yet) which means drummer Danny Carrey has some extra time on his hands so he’ll be once again joining the Doug Webb Group at Squashed Grapes when they play on Saturday, July 8. Be sure to secure tickets at (805) 643-7300.

Quick notes: The Queens of the Stone Age concert at the Ventura Theater has been canceled, Kelly’s Lot is opening for Junior Brown at the Canyon Club on July 9, Music Under the Stars kicks off their summer concert season July 15 at Olivas Adobe with WhosNext; Tim Curran and The Brambles will be at Beach House Tacos on the Ventura Pier, Sunday, July 16 4-7 pm; and finally the 2017 Ventura Music Festival kicks off their “An American Season” featuring 23 performances this year including Perla Batalla’s tribute to Leonard Cohen on Friday, July 21, and Simply Three on Saturday July 22 at Ventura College Performing Arts Center, all of their events and ticket information can be found at VenturaMusicFestival.org.

Vol. 10, No. 19 – June 21 – July 4, 2017 – Ventura Music Scene

by Pam Baumgardner
VenturaRocks.com

The 2017 Ventura Music Festival is still a few weeks away, which means you should get your tickets now to attend one or more, or all of the events they have lined up. The theme this year is “An American Season” with the grand finale staring the one and only Michael Feinstein featuring stories and songs from the great American songbook on Sunday, July 23 at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. There will be performances all week long at different venues; I’m particularly looking forward to Perla Batalla’s tribute to Leonard Cohen on Friday, July 21, at the Ventura College Performing Arts Center. All the event and ticket information can be found at VenturaMusicFestival.org.

In case you missed the memo, Roadshow Revival has moved from downtown Mission Park to Discovery this year, Saturday, July 1, with Los Lobos headlining the day. There will still be two stages with bands playing all day long and an after party indoors that evening (separate cover charge for each event). Roadshow Revival started out as a tribute to the man in black but has since evolved into a celebration of American roots music. You can find the full band line up and ticket information at RoadshowRevival.com.

The City of Ventura will once again celebrate the Fourth of July starting with the Pushem-Pullem Parade at 10 am followed by the 42nd annual street fair downtown. Several stages will provide live musical entertainment including such bands as Rin Kon Tiki, Pier 101, Rhythm 805, Big Adventure, Raised on Vinyl, and more. Then later in the day catch the fireworks show and family picnic at Ventura College sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ventura; gates open at 5 with the fireworks at about 9 pm with entertainment including live music in between. The Rotary Club donates 100% of the event’s net proceeds to benefit charitable community programs in Ventura.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has released their latest CD entitled Louie Louie Louie, a tribute to three musical giants, Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan and Louis Prima. The entire CD from start to finish demonstrates Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s love, admiration and first-class musicianship in honoring the three Louies. I’m incredibly proud to include this one in my private music collection.

Quick notes: Jodi Farrell and TreCoustics played their final show at Grapes and Hops Friday, June 16; Congratulations to Topa Mountain Winery as they celebrate their one-year anniversary on June 25 with live music from Orgone and the Bryan Titus Trio; Ventura Theater announced Queens of the Stone Age will play there August 10; and don’t forget next month it’s Surf Rodeo July 15 and 16.

Distinguished songbirds stage benefit

Duo is raising their voices to benefit the Young Artists Fund of the VMF.

Soprano Patricia Lathrop-McPherson and baritone Steven Z. Perren will sing for a good cause on Sunday, June 25th, at 4pm at Temple Beth Torah. The duo is raising their voices with an American Songbook Sampling to benefit the Young Artists Fund of the Ventura Music Festival and to whet the appetite for the Festival’s big Michael Feinstein “Great American Songbook” concert that closes their annual festival a month later. Lathrop-McPherson and Perren are each members of the VMF Board of Directors.

Benefit tickets for the June 25 concert are $25. Temple Beth Torah is located at 7620 Foothill Road. The program includes a guest appearance by Blake Kasting, recent Ventura High grad and winner of VMF’s 2016 Student Jazz Competition.

The VMF Young Artists Fund includes the annual Music in the Schools program, Student Jazz Competition, Rising Stars concerts, a special Children’s Concert for VUSD, master classes and other youth education, engagement and performance programs.

Benefit Tickets are available online at VenturaMusicFestival.org, or reserve by phone – 648.3146. Ticket and program information on the “American Season” July Festival is also on the VMF website.

Vol. 10, No. 18 – June 7 – June 20, 2017 – Ventura Music Scene

by Pam Baumgardner
VenturaRocks.com

The Ojai Music Festival is underway taking over several venues and running June 8 – June 11. You’ll need tickets for most events, but there are several free concerts throughout the week.  You can get information at OjaiFestival.org.

Rene Ponce gave me the lowdown on Goodnight Kiss when they recently played at Ollie’s Duck and Dive in Malibu.  He told me they’ve played there several times, but this last time Kid Rock was in the crowd and accepted the band’s invitation to join them for a couple of tunes. How cool is that? The guys return to Ventura on June 17th when they open for Brothers Fortune at Bombay’s.

The Ventura Beach Club has been booked on Saturday, June 17th by Stay True and ideal Music Collective hoping to alleviate those “No-Warped-Tour-Again-This-Year-Blues” by lining up bands and DJs indoors and out.  On the bill includes Split Second, Love Thing, Yearbooks, No Advisory, Two Brothers and Pretty Well.  If you love punk, ska, emo & pop, you won’t want to miss this one.

Ones to Watch Productions (O2W) have announced that Grammy Award winning artist Lucinda Williams will be headlining this year’s Topa Topa Folk Fest at the Libbey Bowl in October. Leading up to the event, O2W will be hosting a folk fest showcase on June 17 at Topa Mountain Winery featuring Justine Bennett, Tim Curran, The Brambles and Shane Alexander. Get more information on all their events at TopaTopaFolkFest.com.

Quick notes: You can get your tickets for Roadshow Revival with Los Lobos headlining on Saturday, July 1 at Discovery at RoadShowRevival.com; The Wine Rack is rebranding itself as Vintura Tasting Room & Wine Rack; the Boatyard Café is undergoing some upgrades and I understand renaming itself as the Boatyard Pub; Alastair Greene is heading out to jam at the Chicago Blues Fest on June 10; Shawn Jones returns from Europe and will be at Grapes and Hops on Saturday, June 17; and finally don’t miss Alex Nestor when she plays at Café Fiore, on Friday, June 16, she opened Sunday (May 28) at the Simi Valley Cajun and Blues fest.

And finally, I’ve officially made a name change for my radio show on CAPS Media’s KPPQ-LP, 104.1 FM.  I seriously thought about calling it Pam on the Rocks, but out of respect to Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the Roq), I opted against it; and because I can’t use Ventura Rocks, my third chose, and apparent final choice is: The 805 Music Scene with Pam Baumgardner.  The name alone encompasses more than Ventura, even more than Ventura County which is good. I still play indie artists from outside our area who have caught my ear, and I spin tunes from bands who have come here to play. Tune in and support local music Tuesdays and Fridays 5-6 pm.
